Deutsche Börse today announced a significant improvement of its IT network between the financial center London and Deutsche Börse Group's trading platforms in Frankfurt/Main. The Group deployed new enhanced 10 Gigabit data links between Frankfurt and London delivering the currently lowest possible latency of 4.33 milliseconds.
Technical partner for this ultra-fast connectivity is Colt Technology Services. These links connect the London based new Deutsche Börse low latency access point at Telehouse with the matching engines of Eurex and Xetra in Frankfurt.
"We are very pleased to offer our UK based customer unprecedented fast connection between the financial centres," said Michael Girg, Head of Networks Support at Deutsche Börse. "With new shortest geographical paths, Colt has set a new benchmark that supports us in our continuous striving for delivering fastest access to our trading platforms."
"The connectivity we deployed for Deutsche Börse onto our ultra-low latency market leading London-Frankfurt route is another proof of Colt's commitment to continuously enhance its information delivery platform to help our finance customers deliver higher trading performance" said Bernhard Pussel, Director Wholesale Germany at Colt Technology Services GmbH."
In February, Deutsche Börse had announced an agreement with Telehouse, whereby Deutsche Börse said that it plans to use Telehouse's data center as a low latency access point in London.
