Why is "latency" so important?

Latency is the amount of time a message takes to traverse a system. In a network, it is an expression of how much time it takes for a packet of data to get from one designated point to another. Latency depends on the speed of the transmission medium (e.g., copper wire, optical fiber or radio waves) and the delays in the transmission by devices along the way. A low latency indicates a high network efficiency. Ultra Low Latency (ULL) radios provide the best performance, even faster than fiber. Latency and throughput are the two most fundamental measures of network performance. They are closely related, but whereas latency measures the amount of time between the start of an action and its completion, throughput is the total number of such actions that occur in a given amount of time.

1. Lower cost. No middle man.
2. Better technical & warranty support, before & after the sale.
3. Latest 'faster than fiber' technology. 
4. Easy installation and user-friendly control system.
5. Peace of mind (20 years of industry leadership, stability, & zero debt/VC money).
