Colt to provide direct connectivity for Japan Exchange Group to Chicago
October 19, 2017

Colt Technology Services is announcing that it will provide direct connectivity between trading venues in Tokyo and Chicago for the Japan Exchange Group's new inter-exchange service dubbed JPX-Chicago Co-Location Direct. The new service, powered by Colt's dedicated, ultra-low-latency IQ Network, links JPX's data centre in Tokyo with the Aurora and Cermak data centres utilized by major exchanges in Chicago.

The new agreement continues a longstanding partnership between the two organizations. It is a partnership that has seen the establishment of high-speed digital connectivity between premier trading venues such as the Tokyo Stock Exchange, the Singapore Exchange and others, in addition to major exchanges in Chicago.

Colt says its existing points of presence, co-located with both JPX and Chicago's Aurora and Cermak data centres, eliminate the need for additional local connectivity. In combination with Colt's intercontinental connectivity, JPX is able to offer significantly lower latency to trading participants, contributing to greater overall liquidity. The low-latency network route chosen by JPX linking exchanges in Tokyo and Chicago was, in fact, optimized earlier this year.
