Connectivity provider FXecosystem
has become one of the first organisations to be upgraded onto Hibernia’s new
Ultra 5 Express Circuit which provides an even faster connection between London
and New York.
FXecosystem says it can
now offer clients a reduced RTD (return trip delay) between London and New York
of 63.36 milliseconds, down from 65.36 milliseconds.
The firm adds the drop
in the round-trip across the Atlantic will result in even lower latency and
faster execution, enabling clients to maximise the number of trades processed
“Being one of the
first companies to offer such ultra-quick connectivity between London and New
York is a huge advantage for us in terms of providing improved latency
performance to major banks and also attracting new clients,” says James
Banister, CEO, FXecosystem. “Our banking clients have now been added to the
Ultra 5 Express Circuit and are already seeing the benefits of the increased
capacity and speed. We will be adding other clients over the next few weeks.
to evolve in terms of investing in our infrastructure, especially between New
York and London, and we are seeing our client base grow exponentially,” he
The firm recently
launched FXeco-Eye, a real-time network performance monitoring and analytics
tool to enable business units and network/trading system support teams to speed
up the process of establishing the root cause of any network and trading
issues. FXeco-Eye enables users to troubleshoot network, application and
connectivity issues without creating disruptions to business critical flows.
The company says it will
be adding further products to its portfolio over the forthcoming months.
