Interxion, a leading European operator of carrier-neutral data centres, today announced an agreement with AboveNet, the high-bandwidth connectivity provider, to host a Point of Presence for its enhanced metro Ethernet, IP transit and international VPN services at Interxion's London City data centre.

AboveNet's presence will leverage Interxion's high-specification infrastructure and fast-growing capital markets and exchanges community to facilitate ultra-low-latency connectivity and networking services for its financial services customers.

Interxion's data centre location in the heart of the City of London provides AboveNet's City-based financial services customers with the ideal location to fully capitalise on electronic trading. By leveraging the benefits of physically locating near financial exchanges, AboveNet can achieve drastic reductions in latency between client servers and exchanges. With the closest proximity connections to London's top liquidity markets, Interxion offers lower latency and reduced networking costs to companies connecting in London and the key financial markets worldwide.

"This investment in our network is good news for organisations looking for lower-latency, cost-effective and more secure connectivity for bandwidth-heavy applications, especially those in the financial sector." said John Donaldson, AboveNet UK Managing Director. "The partnership with Interxion is vital to our growth strategy, putting us ahead of the curve on service provision and providing our customers with essential competitive advantage."

"This announcement further reinforces Interxion's position as one of the leading colocation providers to the financial services industry," said Anthony Foy, Group Managing Director at Interxion. "We are particularly proud that AboveNet has decided to become part of our Financial Hub, which currently houses a number of the leading exchanges, MTFs, buy-side & sell-side firms, and technology providers. As one of the few data centre providers with ample space and power available in the City of London in close proximity to the largest liquidity markets, we are ideally positioned to meet both the current and future low-latency colocation requirements of capital market participants."
