EXA unveiled its strategy to launch a hybrid microwave-fibre link connecting New York and London.

With the ownership and operation of the EXA Express, the transatlantic cable with the lowest latency to date, EXA's latest initiative is set to revolutionise applications such as financial trading, where even the slightest delay can impact competitive advantage.

Nicholas Collins, EXA’s Chief Commercial Officer, emphasised the constant demand for faster connectivity between major financial hubs: “The demand for accelerated connectivity between leading financial exchanges remains unabated. We are proud to offer the fastest transatlantic fibre routes for financial exchanges between the US and the UK and will continue to listen to our customers when making strategic investments in our network to deliver additional value that supports their growth. Market leading latencies for trade execution means greater financial returns for our customers.”

Ciaran Delaney, Chief Operating Officer at EXA, outlined the specifics of the new route: “The hybrid microwave-fibre route will see microwave technology introduced between Slough-LD4 and EXA’s Cable Landing Station in Cork, Ireland. The network build is a testament to our commitment to enhancing routes and adopting cutting-edge technologies to consistently achieve industry-leading low latencies and maximise availability.”

This announcement comes on the heels of EXA's recent expansions in its transatlantic service offerings, including the integration of the Dunant, Havfrue, and Amitie subsea cables. These additions mean EXA now offers its customers a choice of six unique transatlantic pathways and several landing sites across North America and Europe, further extending its leadership in the field.
