NexGen Offers Clients Fastest Network Route Europe Asia

Backbone Capacity on the Transit Europe-Asia (TEA) Terrestrial Cable Network provides customers with optimal route between critical centers of commerce

NexGen Networks, a leading global provider of ultra high-speed fiber-optic services with a distinctive customer service approach, has announced the acquisition of backbone capacity on the Transit Europe-Asia (TEA) terrestrial cable network. The network enhancement will provide clients with the lowest possible latency connections between Asia and Europe. The reduced round trip delays of about 164 milliseconds between London and Hong Kong represent a substantial improvement over undersea alternatives traversing the Pacific or Indian Oceans.

“A lot can happen in 100ms in industries like financial services, and that is about the size of the edge that this newly acquired TEA backbone capacity gives our customers over the nearest alternative route,” says NexGen’s Jeffrey Barth.  “This acquisition represents our commitment to proactive improvements and upgrades, ensuring that our clients around the world can leverage the ideal infrastructure to meet their needs.”

As the world’s longest overland route, traveling from Frankfurt to Turkey, then tracing the ancient Silk Route through central Asia into Western China and onto Shanghai, the TEA cable network is now the most notable high-capacity line within the region. In addition to the enhancements in speed, the cable network presents an alternative to undersea cable routes in the event of cable cuts due to earthquakes, typhoons, and tsunamis.

The new infrastructure complements numerous cable builds and office openings that have dramatically expanded NexGen’s international presence. In recent years, NexGen has worked assiduously to provide direct data connectivity in the greatest centers of commerce in Asia, providing financial service firms, media companies, e-commerce companies and other customers that have locations in the region with more robust backbone connectivity to the international NexGen Network, including network transport and IP connectivity on a global scale.
