McKay Brothers Opens Another Route With Best Known Latency: Aurora-Cermak Service Clocks In At 370 Microseconds

OAKLAND, Calif., April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- McKay Brothers, LLC today announces another expansion of its extremely low latency communication network: again breaking known speed records.  The private line service connects exchange datacenters in Aurora, IL and 350 E. Cermak Rd. in downtown Chicago in 370 microseconds round trip time from rack to rack.

The Aurora-Cermak route complements McKay's wireless service along the important Aurora-NJ corridor, where McKay recently extended its latency advantage with 8.25 milliseconds round-trip service between Aurora and Secaucus and 8.33 between Aurora and Carteret. McKay is also seeing significant reliability improvements as it makes improvements to its network, with first quarter reliability running ~99%.

"We specialize in engineering, building, and operating extremely low latency wireless networks," remarked Bob Meade, co-founder of McKay.  "We don't trade.  We don't resell. We don't provide advisory services. Our team of physicists, engineers, and developers focuses all of its energy on delivering the best possible telecom service to our customers.  We welcome their enthusiasm for these milestone achievements."
