Colt optimises its Ultra Low Latency network between Hong Kong and Tokyo exchanges

Colt Technology Services is claiming that it has achieved the fastest connectivity between the Tokyo and Hong Kong Stock exchanges, thanks its work in reducing the latency in its Ultra Low Latency network. 

The Ultra Low Latency network was first installed between the Japan Exchange Group and Hong Kong Exchanges in 2010, and since then Colt has made a series of optimisations to improve the service for high-frequency trading. 

Masato Hoshino, head of Asia at Colt commented, “Colt has been investing in ultra low latency infrastructure in order for our clients to realise trades on multiple exchanges, with faster and more reliable connectivity. 

“Having an advantage in execution speed is essential in a competitive market, and Colt’s ultra low latency network is a preferred solution for many of our financial services customers. Colt was ranked as one of the leading providers of network connectivity services for the Japan Exchange Group (JPX) two years ago. We will never be satisfied with the status quo and will continue to invest to provide better service to the financial community, especially in low latency connectivity, together with highly reputed customer services.”

Colt is prioritising its network for enterprises and announced a three-year investment plan focusing on the upgrade and expansion of the capacity and reach of its network in 2017. The coverage of its network across the world has also been expanded and densified to meet the needs of global customers, as well as its high bandwidth capabilities in response to the trend of digital transformation.
