QuantHouse partners with Cisco to launch low latency Asia network

Thursday, November 15, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - QuantHouse, a part of S&P Capital IQ and the global provider of next generation trading solutions, has partnered with Cisco, the worldwide leader in networking to assist in the implementation of its ultra low latency network across Asia, to provide data transfer at the highest speeds available.

In recent years, the global demand for high frequency trading and low latency technology has increased considerably. Buy- and sell-side trading firms are being forced to improve their infrastructures and companies are competing to provide the fastest and most reliable systems in order to keep up with the pace of the international market.

The two partners are delivering technologies that allow clients to access the heart of the Asian exchanges at the optimum speed. The combination of QuantLINK, its proprietary fibre optic network, and Cisco’s AlgoBoost technology on the Nexus 3548 platform, will deliver to clients the fastest delivery of market data to servers (in financial trading centres) with latencies as low as 190-nanoseconds.

Stephane Leroy, Head of Sales and Marketing at QuantHouse, part of S&P Capital IQ commented: “Algo trading is a highly competitive and ultra-fast-paced world. We understand our clients’ priorities have to be reliability, flexibility and performance, above all else. The latest expansion of our QuantLINK solution, together with Cisco’s offering, allows us to answer industry demands.”

Mado Bourgoin, Director at Cisco continued: “Our aim is to help financial traders accelerate price discovery, increase order flow liquidity and better manage regulatory requirements. Through our work with various technology firms, such as QuantHouse, we are enabling clients to adopt a combination of technologies that are proven to both increase network performance and reduce latency.”
