Perseus Telecom, a leading global provider of ultra-low latency, high capacity networks from market-to-market, today announced it has made the company's industry leading network between Nasdaq OMX in New York and BM&F Bovespa in Sao Paulo, 2.5 milliseconds faster than the already fastest recognized connection by the Global Telecoms Business Innovation Award in 2012.
Perseus has operated the fastest market-to-market network connection between New York and Brazil from the datacenters of Nasdaq OMX and the BM&F Bovespa for almost two years while working tirelessly to enhance performance. Dozens of companies within financial markets including exchanges, banks, brokers, high frequency traders, market data and order management vendors have all found advantageous opportunities with accelerated speed over this unique Perseus network.
Customers have selected Perseus Telecom for the fastest connections from Chicago to New York, New York to Brazil, New York to London, London to Frankfurt and with other key market-to-market connections. Moreover, Perseus customers rely on best-in-class speed to market backed by a performance driven "Walk-Away" Service Level Agreement (SLA).
The Perseus SLA is a standard for all customers allowing them to enjoy the benefit of having one contract to negotiate the lowest latency routes with a given expectation that as a lower latency solution becomes available, the customer will benefit from the service enhancement at no extra charge.
Andrew Kusminsky, Chief Operating and Strategy Officer at Perseus said, "Optimizing our network to and within Brazil in an effort to keep our commitment to our customers is a part of a daily regimen for our team. We are committed to ensuring our network meets the performance requirements our customers demand."
Brazil continues to surge in appeal for high performance trading from foreign institutions in the US, Europe and Asia participating in the markets of the BM&F Bovespa exchange. Financial markets are a major part of Brazil's attraction for low-latency networks, but as Brazil hosts the world's main attractions FIFA World Cup 2014 and the Rio de Janerio Olympics in 2016, there is increasing need to serve BIG data, real-time broadcast and digital media add to the driving need to have service providers meet lower and lower latency metrics.
"Perseus has taken all of the necessary steps through our operations unit in Brazil to ensure we meet the regulatory environments as a licensed facilities carrier," Kusminsky added. "The Perseus connection from New York to Brazil is now optimized through custom built networks spanning from Fortaleza, Rio de Janeiro and on through Sao Paulo, ideal for trading, broadcasting and the movement of big data."
