Telstra Global provides low latency connectivity to Hong Kong Stock Exchange

Telstra Global is offering low latency connectivity to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEx), after becoming one of the first network service providers to operate at a new hosting centre at the exchange’s data centre at Tseung Kwan O.

The PoP provides financial services organisations based in HKEx with access to Telstra Global’s low latency service, EPL Express.

The service is said to provide high-speed connectivity between major financial capitals around the world, including Chicago, New York, Sydney, London, Frankfurt, Tokyo, Seoul and Singapore.

“Financial services organisations are looking for agility and flexibility to maximise on opportunities in emerging markets. Telstra Global is committed to provide continuous support for its customers in this sector,” commented Martijn Blanken, MD of Telstra Global.

The move appears to support the company’s strategy to enhance its position in Asia which was announced at the end of last year.

Last October, the company also took steps to expand its global footprintby establishing nine PoPs in London, Marseille, Stockholm, Osaka, Tokyo, Sydney, Hong Kong and Chicago.
