The newest, lowest latency financial exchange network service between London and Madrid

We have an exclusive partnership on CrossChannel Fibre system to deliver ultra-low latency services to the financial community. We’ve also formed a strategic relationship enabling the sale of dark fibre services using the system.

CrossChannel Fibre is the latest next-generation system to support the ever-growing connectivity needs between London and Paris. It’s the first subsea cable to be built in over 20 years on this important route and the system delivers a uniquely routed next-generation high capacity infrastructure. That aligns with euNetworks’ long haul network development strategy and euNetworks’ approach to building Super Highways across Europe. This new system supports our focus on delivering ultra-low latency services to the high-frequency trading community, with exclusivity on the service to Madrid and additional options and onward connectivity to the rest of Europe.

Key features

  • New and unique 550km fibre system
  • High fibre count, non-repeatered system contains 96 fibre pairs, each enabling over 20 terabits per second of capacity throughput.
  • Lowest latency fibre network between London and Paris.
  • Designed with optimal spacing and attenuation loss between amplifier sites, requiring just four sites compared to the typical seven to nine on other routes. The reduced number of ILA’s combined with free air passive cooling at each site enables a much lower power consumption per bit and it delivers an optimised low-carbon footprint network infrastructure.
  • euNetworks has provided market-leading fibre-based optical ultra-low latency services to the high-frequency trading community for several years through euTrade – the dedicated network platform.
  • This new system offers that euNetworks service to Madrid
