Speed comparison Weather Wire and EMWIN

Several users have asked me about the speed differences between Weather Wire (NWWS) and EMWIN.  The following table shows a quick comparison.  It appears that Weather Wire is faster.  Both systems deliver products very quickly.  I will note that EMWIN carries graphics that are not available from Weather Wire.  Weather Wire only carries text products.

Product Identifier NWWS Received Time EMWIN Received Time Difference in Seconds
HWOBMX 05:14:01.50 05:15:09.92 68
SVRMLB 11:43:09.68 11:43:51.18 42
SVRMFL 12:08:05.29 12:08:47.75 42

If receiving weather products is critical to your mission, I recommend using both ingest engines.  Weather Message will filter out duplicate products.
