McKay Brothers lowers latency on US Treasury Triangle

06 October 2016  |  1801 views  |  0 Source: McKay Brothers

McKay Brothers has announced a latency reduction in its industry-leading millimeter wave link between Carteret and Secaucus-NY2 to as low as 182 microseconds round trip.

The improved performance is the result of McKay’s ongoing effort to eliminate excess latency through route improvements, data center optimization and network equipment upgrades.

“The trading of US Treasury instruments is extremely competitive,” says McKay Brothers co-founder Bob Meade. “It is essential for liquidity providers and other market participants to use the best low latency telecom infrastructure.”

McKay Brothers offers private bandwidth at the lowest known latency on each leg of the so-called Treasury Triangle. US Treasury futures are traded in Aurora, IL while cash treasuries are traded primarily on venues located in Carteret and Secaucus, NJ.
“McKay provides all of our subscribers with the industry’s best latency,” says Meade. “We believe this level playing field encourages participation from liquidity providers and contributes to robust markets.”

McKay affiliate Quincy Data uses the McKay network to deliver futures and cash market data at lowest known latencies.
