Lucera has selected network and data centre provider BSO’s Chicago-New York-London-Tokyo connectivity route to expand its global FX trading reach.
The agreement combines Lucera’s on-demand Software Defined Network (SDN) with BSO’s low-latency circuit, enabling electronic traders to seek out new sources of FX trading flow and rapidly access the major currency regions.
Commenting on the partnership, Peter Durkan, CEO of Lucera, says: “Getting circuits up and running more quickly provides our clients with access to liquidity much faster than would normally be possible. It was so important that our chosen provider not only had a strong US network footprint, but also, a reputation for delivering high quality managed services support across the region. BSO’s ability to get network circuits in place promptly was key to our decision, as this has translated into improved trading performance for our FX clients.”
Ethernet, cloud and hosting provider, BSO, has added Singapore and Hong Kong to its FX circuit, citing growing demand for fast and reliable access to trade currency derivatives in emerging markets as the reason for the expansion.
The new routes, built on top of BSO’s London-New York-Tokyo circuit, will enable market makers using the BSO network to trade currency derivatives up to 10 milliseconds faster than before.
The new circuit includes improved latency and more diverse paths between London and Singapore, as well as a new trans-Pacific route for firms looking to trade between New York and Hong Kong. BSO says that it has also optimised its London-Tokyo link to the lowest latency available on the market.
