Low latency networks are an absolute must in the Financial Sector
The European securities trading landscape has changed rapidly since the introduction of MiFID regulation in 2008, and institutions are now required to prove best trade execution. This has subsequently meant that traders and financial houses are looking to adopt a reliable, superfast method of storing and retrieving the enormous volume of trading data involved.
Smart algorithmic trading also makes low latency technology essential – not only in the trading applications themselves, but in the underlying network connectivity. Data volumes are unforgiving and every millisecond counts in this new trading environment.
It’s simple, with Geo you’ll be the quickest
Geo can help you to create an ultra-fast network with minimal latency. Our team of planning and network design experts will ensure you have the fastest optical route between two points for your business. And to give you an idea, Geo has shaved 1 millisecond (1,000 microseconds) off latency on some of our customers’ trading platforms.
Our fibre network is installed deep underground in London’s sewer system. It also follows a direct route to key locations such as Slough. Taking the path of least resistance, we can connect your sites with London’s Multilateral Trading Facilities (MTFs) to give your transactions the leading edge.
