Low latency describes a computer network that is optimized to process a very high volume of data messages with minimal delay (latency). These networks are designed to support operations that require near real-time access to rapidly changing data.

Where is low latency needed?

Low latency is desirable in a wide range of use cases. In a general sense, lower latency is nearly always an improvement over slower packet transport. Low latency is desirable in online gaming as it contributes to a more realistic gaming environment. However, the term low latency is most often used to describe specific business use cases, in particular high-frequency trading in capital markets.
