Press Release: BSO Expands with Four New Corporate Entities and Lower Latency on Brazil to New York Route

Expanding its global footprint to new strategic trading regions enables BSO to deliver networking and infrastructure solutions for global businesses

Dublin, Ireland – 11 September 2023 – BSO, the global pioneering infrastructure and connectivity provider, is pleased to announce the launch of four new corporate entities. 

This strategic expansion reinforces BSO’s position as a leading infrastructure and connectivity provider and further enhances the customer experience for those trading in these regions. These new entities include: 

- Apsara Networks México (Mexico)
- BSO Network (Pty) Ltd (South Africa)
- BSO Brasil Telecom Ltda (Brazil)
- BSO Network Telekomünikasyon Bilişim Hizmetleri A.Ş (Turkey)
These regions boast incredibly fast-growing economies that provide substantial growth opportunities for BSO’s continued development, underpinned by the strong liquidity these active financial trading hubs offer. Digitisation is at the forefront of regional and global business, and this expansion aligns with heavy investment in localised cloud expansion and connectivity solutions.

In addition to improving global customer experience, these newly established entities serve as gateways to fast-growing economies in LATAM, Central America, Southern Africa, and Eurasia, facilitating seamless connectivity and innovation in these regions.

For BSO’s customers, this expansion offers improved customer experience through increased access to local engineering talent and expertise, streamlined operational processes for local trades and businesses, and simplified engagement for international customers. BSO ensures in-region support by providing uninterrupted service availability to its customers.

Accompanying this growth milestone is the lowering of latencies on the major route of B3NY, with latencies of <100 ms. Expected to be live shortly, this is a critical route for connecting North American and European trading firms, hedge funds and capital banks with Brazil and Latin America’s markets. 

This development once again demonstrates BSO’s capability in consistently pushing the boundaries of what’s achievable with latencies on major financial trading routes and delivering unrivalled innovation year in and year out. This includes low latency support on routes connecting London to Tokyo, Frankfurt to Istanbul, London to Riyadh, Singapore to Mumbai. 

B3, a stock exchange in São Paulo, Brazil, is one of the largest financial exchanges in the world, and  the event connects non-resident investors with the local Brazilian financial market. BSO’s B3 accredited status ensures unrivalled market access to a region heavily investing in its international connectivity, data centre infrastructure, cloud interconnectivity, and data offerings. This news coincides with BSO’s attendance at B3 Week in São Paulo, Brazil, from September 12 – 14, 2023.

“We’re incredibly excited about BSO’s global network expansion and the growth opportunities these new in-region entities can unlock for our business and customer base. This growth is the next stage in BSO's long-term commitment to providing unparalleled global connectivity, which we can’t wait to showcase in the coming months and years,” said Michael Ourabah, Chief Executive Officer at BSO.  

“Our customers are at the heart of everything BSO does. With these new entities and reduced latencies, we are raising the bar for customer experience with more localised infrastructure solutions, making it simpler and more efficient for businesses and traders to conduct business in these regions,” said Tony Jones, Head of Low Latency Strategy at BSO.
