BSO’S TOKYO DARK FIBRE METRO NETWORK PROVIDES THE FASTEST ROUTE BETWEEN KEY FINANCIAL DATA CENTRES

Dark fibre connectivity service between KVH Tokyo DCI, Tokyo TY3 and @Tokyo.

BSO Network Solutions (BSO), the global Ethernet network, cloud and hosting provider, is pleased to announce it now offers the most direct network path between three key financial data centres in Tokyo – KVH Tokyo DC1, Tokyo TY3 and @Tokyo. This connectivity is made possible through the company’s new dark fibre metro network service, which has been specifically designed for financial organisations interested in low-latency connectivity between these strategic locations.

“This is another landmark in our ongoing investment in the Asia Pacific region. Tokyo remains one of the most diverse trading locations in the world, however the metropolitan area is densely populated and reliable connectivity between data facilities often comes at a premium. Simplicity and the customer experience are at the heart of our new network service. We believe this will significantly reduce the complexity associated with accessing Tokyo’s markets, particularly for companies already holding IT assets in the city’s legacy data centres.”
MICHAEL OURABAH
CEO, BSO

Tokyo’s exchanges and financial data centres have undergone significant consolidation in recent years. This includes KVH Tokyo DC1, which used to host Tokyo Stock Exchange. As a result, many local and international financial firms still co-locate and host mission critical IT assets in the facility but now require secure, direct connectivity to Tokyo’s other data centres. This demand from customers led BSO to design its new network service, which connects KVH Tokyo DC1 to @Tokyo, the consolidated Japan Exchange Group (JPX) facility that includes Tokyo Stock Exchange and Osaka Securities Exchange, and Tokyo TY3, a major hub for FX trading in the city.

BSO’s expansion brings the company’s presence in Asia Pacific up to 16 data centres and 70 globally. All BSO’s Asia Pacific POPs are in key financial locations critical to the international financial community. These include; Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Mumbai, Johannesburg and Sydney, where BSO supports clients with connectivity into global markets such as; Dubai, Chicago, New York, London and Frankfurt.
