The Fast Path to Global Financial Markets

Zayo’s Low-Latency Connectivity Extends to Financial Liquidity Centres in Europe, South America and Asia

Spread Networks by Zayo can now offer low-latency connectivity from the U.S. to key financial centres in Europe, South America and Asia. Zayo has established a point of presence in the NJFX Tier 3 data centre in Wall Township, N.J., providing direct access to the subsea cable systems and local fibre providers that terminate in the data centre.

The new and strengthened global capability further demonstrates our commitment to the Spread Networks by Zayo product, providing low-latency, global trading solutions for customers in the financial sector. Spread Network’s flagship route offers the lowest latency and direct high-count fibre route between New York and Chicago. When combined with Zayo’s existing fibre routes, for coast-to-coast, low-latency dark fibre and lit fibre-based solutions, financial firms, as well as content, media and cloud providers, benefit from the low-latency, coast-to-coast network.

Most providers offer only a single segment of the global low-latency footprint. With the NJFX relationship, Zayo has the ability to provide an end-to-end solution tying financial exchanges in South America and Europe all the way to Asia. The solution combines Spread’s low-latency, on-net and partner connectivity with Zayo’s existing fibre footprint in the NY financial corridor and west from Chicago to Tokyo.

“Our vision is to provide a ‘one stop shop’ for customers who want to trade globally, alleviating the need to work with different vendors in each region they are operating,” said Brandon Gouin, general manager of Spread Networks by Zayo. “The expanded global capability extends and strengthens our unique value proposition in the financial marketplace.”

Spread Networks by Zayo is evaluating other low-latency opportunities, both fibre and microwave, to provide customers with additional options for the fastest, most reliable routes available across established and emerging markets globally.
