Deutsche Börse Systems announced today that it started installing a new ultra-low latency infrastructure connecting the financial centres London and Frankfurt.

By upgrading its telecommunication backbone network, Deutsche Börse Systems will provide unparalleled ultra low latency access from the UK to Deutsche Börse's trading systems Eurex and Xetra as well as to external customers and partners. The network latency will be reduced to below 5 milliseconds, setting new standards in the industry.

The network connectivity will comprise of four links of 10 Gbit/s capacity each, provided by the network providers Level 3 Communications, Interoute and COLT. The connectivity combines new routing paths across the shortest geographical distance with diverse routing options and the latest optical transmission technology. The new design means the lowest possible latency is achieved while satisfying needs for highest availability without any single points of failure. Thus, these measures meet the ever increasing demands for highest data throughput and ultra low latency.

"The new connectivity brings Frankfurt and London closer together than ever" says Matthias Kluber, Executive Vice President and Head of Networks and Infrastructure at Deutsche Börse Systems. "The step emphasises Deutsche Börse's leading position in ultra low latency trading", concluded Kluber.
