Custom Connect’s Low-Latency Connectivity between Frankfurt and Singapore Selected by Leading Global Trader

Latency between Deutsche Börse and SGX below 180ms RTD

Custom Connect, global integrator of high-performance network solutions, today announced that a major worldwide financial trader selected Custom Connect to deliver connectivity between Frankfurt, Germany and Singapore. It concerns dedicated 1G Ethernet connections between the Deutsche Börse and the Singapore Exchange (SGX). The fastest connection offers the lowest possible latency between both markets with a round-trip time of below 180 milliseconds.

The solution enables the client to expand its business by enabling automated trading between Europe and Asia-Pacific. With increasing levels of competition and intercontinental trade activity, low latency was a key requirement in designing the connection between two of the world’s most important financial exchanges. Custom Connect designed a unique connection across multiple carriers to optimize the fiber distance resulting in the lowest latency.

Together with a second fully diverse low latency connection, the client’s demand was fulfilled by delivering services 100% diverse from each other and avoiding terrestrial cable systems.

This solution is based on using the financial heart of Singapore as the main hub for connections into several major financial exchanges across Asia-Pacific, all based on reliability and low latency.

“Frankfurt and Singapore are trading hubs of high importance. The success of this project is a result of our commitment to provide our clients with the lowest possible latency,” commented Olav van Doorn, Executive Director at Custom Connect, “As a carrier-neutral service provider, we are excited to help our clients maximize their business potential in an increasingly global and competitive financial market.”
