Offering the ultimate combination of speed, capacity, and availability, the underlying technology in the Celeras Laser Transport System (LTS) was originally developed in collaboration with the Department of Defense for use in communications between jets flying at mach speeds. With more than a decade of research and hundreds of millions in funding behind it, Anova’s LTS was introduced to the financial markets for telecommunications usage in 2013.
The LTS platform can maintain near 100 percent availability in all inclement weather. It simulcasts the data across two frequencies, millimeter wave (MMW) and laser, and selects the best packet in real time using Dynamic Packet Resourcing (DPR), enabling fiber-like availability at wireless speed. The laser and the MMW have mutually exclusive attenuation properties. The weather that causes the MMW to fade does not affect the laser, and vice versa. This enables the radios to transmit 2Gbs of throughput in all weather.
A critical advantage that the LTS has over the competition is its ability to compensate for up to ±3°of tower twist and sway. This enables Anova to deploy these radios on non-conventional structures and take advantage of towers at heights where other radios cannot.
Another benefit the Celeras LTS provides is capacity to 4Gbs. The robust capacity allows us to offer a wide number of clients both execution connectivity in a variety of bandwidth increments partitioned in 10Mb slices and raw market data. With the bandwidth constraints of other technologies, such as microwave or standard MMW, providers have extremely limited capacity, and therefore can only offer services to the highest bidders.
When deployed across Anova’s FCC registered shortest path routes, Anova’s LTS delivers speed. The radio itself minimizes propagation and node switching delays, with a non-buffering layer 1 packet technology.
Our LTS utilizes automated precision link alignment. The Point-Acquire-Track™ (PAT) process takes minutes to lock onto the exact center of the main lobe, minimizing installation costs and guaranteeing maximum performance. This advantage, along with Anova’s proprietary pathing software, facilitates expeditious link deployment once sites have been identified.
