Telstra launches low-latency service for CME Group

08 August 2014 |


Telstra has launched a low-latency service to CME Group’s Aurora data centre in Australia.

The service will provide local financial services with low-latency connectivity to other major financial centres, including the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in Sydney.

Telstra’s PoP at CME Group’s data centre is said to support customer demands from across the world, in particular by offering what it claims is the lowest latency possible for accessing the US market.

“It will also enable our US customers to mitigate risks and scale quickly to meet changing business and bandwidth demands, whilst taking advantage of growth opportunities in the Asia-Pacific region,” said Matthew Lempriere, Telstra’s global head of the financial services market segment.

The move builds on PoPs established in both the Singapore Exchange and Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 2013.
