Atrium Network, provider of smarter connectivity for the financial community, today announced it has opened a new point of presence (PoP) in London in response to customer demand extending its low latency capability within Equinix's LD3 Park Royal data centre.
Enhancing access to venues and counterparties at LD3 (Park Royal) gives Atrium Network participants direct ultra-low latency connectivity to the liquidity provided by this important ecosystem of financial market firms.
Atrium Network's interconnectivity fabric, designed to mitigate the costs and risk of any unnecessary co-location investment, ensures the lowest possible latency access to data centres and disaster recovery sites of all available trading venues and MTFs (multilateral trading facilities). Customers connect at the point closest to some of the world's largest liquidity centres to take advantage of the liquidity offered. Clients located in LD3 can easily connect to benefit from ultra-low latency connectivity to venues and participants and benefit from reduced network connectivity costs and increased coverage.
Emmanuel Carjat, Chief Executive Officer at Atrium Network said, "We originally connected to Park Royal in response to demand for access to the disaster recovery facilities of Chi-X Europe, we are now pleased to see strong interest from participants looking at ways to access the new BATS/Chi-X Europe disaster recovery facilities. In anticipation of further demand, we have invested in our infrastructure and network to ensure it has the necessary bandwidth and scalability to scale-up to our customer's changing connectivity requirements."
Mr Carjat added, "In times of venue consolidation and migration, venues that have chosen Atrium Network for connectivity to the global financial markets are now reaping the benefits of our simple connectivity approach. We will continue to provide on-going and deeper coverage throughout London and Europe to give our customers greater connectivity choice to the world's financial markets."
