Anova’s already industry-leading wireless backbone was operating at a robust 10Gbps. Still, increasing market data feed sizes, the desire to serve additional asset classes and significant customer interest in “fiber-like” capacity over the air caused Anova’s engineering team to design a backbone that can transport more than double the current traffic levels.

And of course, the ability to give a customer a full 10Gbps wireless circuit for dedicated use is very exciting.”
The test was conducted between live sites in the New Jersey region, with a link distance of five kilometers. This also makes Celeras the longest distance free space optical (“FSO”) system in existence
