Telstra is offering low latency connectivity to CME Group’s Aurora data center.
The service will provide local financial services organizations with fast and reliable connectivity into other major financial centers including Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in Sydney, Australia.
The new Point of Presence (PoP) at CME Group’s data center will help address customer demands from around the world, providing enhanced market data and the lowest latency possible when accessing the US market.
Financial institutions are faced with diverse challenges relating to speed, resilience and integrity of data. They also require higher bandwidth and low latency connectivity.
The new PoP will provide customers with a consistent service experience and a one-stop-shop for the customers’ low latency global connectivity needs. It will also help mitigate risks and scale quickly to meet the changing business and bandwidth demands.
“It also offers customers single point accountability and responsibility, as well as access to diagnostics capabilities, and builds on the momentum of previous PoP placements in both the Singapore Exchange and Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2013,” added Lempriere.
