EXA Infrastructure, the largest dedicated digital infrastructure platform connecting Europe and North America, today announced that it will provide low latency and ultra low latency network connectivity to the London Stock Exchange Group’s (LSEG) new colocation data centre.
LSEG has moved its data centre from the City of London to a newly-built facility in London’s Docklands area, which will accommodate London Stock Exchange, Turquoise and Turquoise Europe trading and market data platforms. EXA Infrastructure is one of a handful of network connectivity providers with the Accredited Connectivity Partner status required to support connectivity to service subscribers on-site.
EXA Infrastructure will provide on-network dark fibre, wavelength and Ethernet services to LSEG for use by all the co-located users of the data centre. Connectivity can also be extended beyond the colocation facility to other customer sites. EXA’s substantial terrestrial and sub-sea network across Europe and the North Atlantic is particularly suited to trading venue connectivity, with all major European and North American exchanges being on-network and diversely routed, and its Hibernia Express cable offering the lowest latency between London and New York at sub-59 milliseconds (mS) for a round trip.
EXA is pleased to continue to be an Accredited Connectivity Partner at the new data centre facility supporting customers in connecting directly to the market and also supporting customers hosted within the data centre, with the minimum possible latency and maximum uptime to support their order routing activities and to access market data.
“There can be few cases in which the quality and speed of a network is more important than when connecting to the London Stock Exchange, so the decision to entrust EXA Infrastructure as connectivity provider to the new data centre is the highest possible endorsement of our capabilities,” said Andrew Haynes, Executive Vice President Product and Technology, EXA Infrastructure.
