There are standard routes and there are low latency routes that serve mostly traders. The latter charge a big premium. He said the lowest possible latency. That is a specialty market where the SLAs are in microseconds, not milliseconds. Many carriers have a division for ultra low latency. Hibernia Atlantic built express which is just used by financial traders. No one else can afford it. And since low latency is the name of the game, it means waves or SDH or SONET. Not Ethernet switching.

AT&T's AVPN product (Layer 3 VPN/"MPLS") does any-any routing and constantly changes L3 hops for the best pathing.
I've used the service at a few jobs and the product itself is quite good. Dealing with them for things like MACD's can be...frustrating.
We've never had a location they couldn't service either directly or via another last mile carrier.

I am looking for a global network with:
- lowest possible latency
- lowest possible jitter (packet loss and latency variation)
- lowest possible monetary cost
The few providers I have talked to until now, they all provide a
point-to-point low latency link. However, what I am looking for is
any-to-any connectivity so I can get from one point to another in least
possible time and least possible cost.
Would appreciate if you guys can point me in the right direction.
