NTT Launches New Ultra-low-latency Connectivity Service between JPX & SGX
NTT Communications has added a new ultra-low-latency connectivity service between the Japan Exchange Group (JPX) and Singapore Exchange (SGX). This new connectivity service will offer the telecom industry’s lowest-latency level for international leased lines that directly connect the colocation facilities of JPX and SGX. This new service connects JPX’s Access Point 3-equipped data center (AP3 center), where many financial institutions have their servers, and SGX’s data center by just 63.5 milliseconds. This unmatched speed enables investors trading at JPX and SGX to improve the agility of their high-frequency trading and strengthen their competitiveness.
The latency level is a round-trip latency measured using a 1Gbps test cable and 1000Base-LX/64-bite packet environment. The latency level may vary depending on network environment. Since the new PoP is directly connected to the structured cable, an external connection is no longer needed, ultimately reducing the lead time. The new ultra-low-latency option will be available not just for those customers but also for those using other colocation and connectivity services.
