RTS Realtime Systems Group (RTS) has launched proximity hosting and low-latency connectivity services in Japan by leveraging KVH, an information delivery platform headquartered in Tokyo.
These services, available from the new RTS Tokyo data center in the KVH facility, will enable the firm's clients to achieve ultra-low latency access to Japan's major stock, futures and options exchanges, including the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE), Osaka Stock Exchange (OSE), Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM) and all major brokers.
RTS chose KVH for its ultra-low latency networks, robust data centers, and knowledge of the Japanese market. KVH matched RTS' needs for high-performance and low-latency connectivity services in Tokyo to meet the demand among market players outside of Asia for access to the Japanese markets.
"As the premier provider of the lowest latency network in Japan, KVH is enabling us to operate a robust data center that meets our clients' growing demand by featuring a full range of hosting services, ultra-low latency access to liquidity pools of the key Japanese markets and superb international arbitrage opportunities," says RTS CEO Steffen Gemuenden, who recently relocated from Chicago to Singapore.
