NTT Com launches ultra-low-latency connectivity service between Japan and Chicago

NTT Communications has announced a new ultra-low-latency connectivity service connection financial markets in Japan to Chicago, USA.

The service, called JPX-Chicago Co-Location Direct, will link the financial markets operated by Japan Exchange Group, which includes the Tokyo Stock Exchange, to the Cermak Data Center in Chicago through NTT Com’s PC-1 subsea cable.

NTT Com claims the new service includes the industry’s lowest-level latency by linking the Japanese firm’s point of presence in the JPX colocation centre through PC-1, offering the shortest route available.

The carrier also offers connectivity services between JPX and other financial markets, including Hong Kong and Singapore, with a global tier-1 IP network that reaches over 190 countries and over 140 secure data centres worldwide.

The JPX Chicago Co-Location Direct service, which is now live, was announced just days after NTT Com was unveiled as one of four carriers partnering with Amazon and Facebook to launch a new 60Tbps subsea cable in the Pacific

PCCW Global, PLDT and SoftBank have also signed a contract with TE Subcom to build the 14,000km cable, which will run from Daet in the Philippines, Maruyama and Shima in Japan, to Los Angeles, California.
