Atrium Network, provider of smarter connectivity for the financial community, today announced that it has enhanced its North American Exchange Ring with a high-speed, ultra-low latency connection between New Jersey and Chicago. The market-leading latency speed of 15.9 milliseconds (round trip delay) will enable clients to benefit from multi-gigabit access to multiple liquidity venues already connected on Atrium Network's global platform.
Atrium Network's global platform is designed to maximise trading participant's opportunities by offering a simple point of connectivity to the world's largest liquidity centres. Clients benefit from fast, robust and fully scalable connectivity and bandwidth. The new ultra-low latency connection links the key market centre located at 350 Cermak, to New Jersey's markets and provides clients located at 350 Cermak the opportunity to trade into the NYC/New Jersey markets and vice versa.
Commenting on Atrium Network's new high-speed connection, Emmanuel Pellé, COO, of Atrium Network said, "We are delighted to offer clients latency access of 15.9 milliseconds; which is the lowest latency between the Chicago and NYC/New Jersey trading communities. Ultra-low latency to multiple venues gives our participant's a clear trading advantage and we are pleased to have already signed a number of customers to use this connection."
Pellé continued, "We have a solid track record of providing innovative global connectivity and access solutions to support our participant's demands for ultra-low latency. By investing and collocating in the key trading venues ensures our customers are assured of the best performance possible when trading multiple asset classes in multiple venues. In line with our strategic expansions plans, we will continue to invest in new facilities and infrastructure to continue to meet our client's connectivity demands."
