ASX Taps BT for Low-Latency Global Connectivity


The Australian Securities Exchange has announced plans to offer low-latency, global connectivity to trading and data services located in its ASX Australian Liquidity Center via a new network connecting the exchange to clients in -- and connected to -- datacenters operated by the Singapore Exchange in Singapore, Interxion in London and Equinix in Chicago.

The network, dubbed ASX Net Global, is based on network and telecom provider BT's Radianz Venue Interconnect service and BT's cloud connectivity offering, and will be rolled out over the first half of 2013.

David Raper, general manager of trading services at ASX, says the service will improve connectivity to ASX for international clients, while also providing firms co-located in ASX's datacenter with faster access to other global markets.
