Tata Communications has extended its low latency network in Asia with direct connections to the National Stock Exchange of India Limited (NSE), the Singapore Exchange Limited (SGX) and the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEx).
The low latency network further extends the company’s global financial trading connectivity network. As a result, it will support mission critical, real-time trading applications by seamlessly connecting the exchanges with major financial capitals in Asia, the United Kingdom and the United States.
The low latency network is faster than traditional point-to-point systems. The pure Ethernet platform with native multipoint support enables financial trading businesses and other companies that require latency sensitive connectivity to respond faster in the dynamic Asian market. The global network integrates exchanges with market leading low latency connectivity to Europe and beyond, enabling firms to reach major financial centres, such as in Chicago and London in milliseconds, through a single network and single supplier model.
Genius Wong, Senior Vice President, Global Network Services, Tata Communications, says, “Given the challenging economic conditions, fast, secure and reliable connectivity is crucial for businesses. The extension of our network via direct connections to SGX, HKEx and NSE exchanges will enable financial trading firms around the world to execute faster transactions and receive immediate market updates, mitigating financial risks and becoming more participative in the global economy.”
Joel Stradling, Research Director, Current Analysis says, "The expansion of Ethernet connectivity into major stock exchanges in India, Singapore and Hong Kong, strengthens Tata Communications’ global low latency portfolio targeting financial institutions by adding strategically significant markets to an existing global low latency footprint. Customers that need low latency connectivity into NSE, SGX and HKEx can take advantage of several unique differentiators within Tata Communications' Ethernet range, such as its round-the-world cable assets and the benefits of an innovative and unique PBB architecture."
