“In today’s market, there is a race to shave microseconds and nanoseconds from transactions which makes a significant difference for high frequency trading and other time sensitive applications,” commented Mannix O’Connor, Director of Technical Marketing for MRV. “MRV’s OptiDriver platform dramatically reduces the latency inherent in the fiber optic network, over which the data travels.
