KVH Co. Ltd., Asia's leading information delivery platform headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, today announced the launch of newly optimized ultra-low latency routes to the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME) in Aurora, Illinois from Tokyo and Singapore.

Commercially available from March 31, 2014 and delivered over a high bandwidth premium Ethernet service, these routes offer SLA-backed latency below 122 and 188 milliseconds between Tokyo and Aurora and Aurora and Singapore, respectively, making these routes the fastest network between these locations in the market today.

Ideal for Chicago-based traders seeking the fastest connection to Japan Exchange (JPX) or Singapore Exchange (SGX) or Asia-based trading participants requiring low latency access to the CME in Aurora, this fully secure Ethernet private line service will enable domestic and international market participants to have ultra-low latency access to financial markets in Japan, Singapore and the US, with superior speed and scalability. This reliable and secure service can also be used by other industry sectors requiring dedicated bandwidth, high security, and low latency Ethernet services.

"KVH is committed to providing the fastest routes in the industry to meet the needs of financial customers pursuing high frequency trading strategies." said Machifumi Kashiwagi, Vice President, Product Management at KVH. "As an ongoing effort to remain the leader in serving the financial markets in Asia, we are continuously optimizing our network to deliver secure and reliable low latency infrastructure that gives trading participants an edge."

The high frequency trading environment in Asia is evolving rapidly, with increasing demand for higher bandwidth, more secure and reliable low latency connectivity to the trading venues. KVH's newly optimized Ethernet routes between Tokyo, Aurora and Singapore are optimized for global financial market participants requiring low latency connectivity to trading venues and to other market players. Users can choose either protected or unprotected circuits with bandwidths available from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps. This fully diverse cable system, including infrastructure, backhauls and local loops, is available in Point-to-Point, Pointnt-to-Multipoint and Multipoint-to-Multipoint (E-LAN) topology options. In addition to being MEF 9 and 14 compliant, this service is backed by industry leading delivery and performance service level agreements (SLA).
