Microwave is the low latency champion

Faster propagation. Microwave signals travel through the air about 50% faster than light through optical fiber.

Straighter routes. Microwave networks have shorter routes, reducing the total network distance and consequently further improving latency.

In today’s ultra-competitive High Frequency Trading markets, speed is everything, and wireless technologies, and specifically microwave networking, have recently been recognized as a faster alternative to optical transport for ultra-low latency financial applications.
