Telstra - a telecommunication and information services company - today announced a three new point-to-point routes directly connecting the Stock Exchanges of Hong Kong, Singapore and Tokyo as part of its Ethernet Private Line Express (EPLX) service.
According to Matthew Lempriere, Head of Financial Markets in Telstra, the EPLX has leveraged their extensive submarine cable network to offer the financial traders with low latency connectivity and at the same time add the new routes to existing EPLX network of the company in London, Chicago, and Sydney.
"The EPLX Hong Kong to Singapore route will be the fastest service available on the market and in a world where firms need to be able to execute tens of thousands of trades every second, every fraction of a millisecond advantage of can matter," said Lempriere.
"We own the EAC-C2C submarine cable that runs directly between Hong Kong and Singapore, which we use to provide the EPLX service. Owning the underlying network not only gives us the ability to offer faster speeds, we have more operational flexibility to cost effectively scale up to meet customers' demands," he added.
