Equinix Delivers High Precision Time from Perseus Telecom for Financial Firms

Equinix has begun offering "High Precision Time" by Perseus Telecom to financial firms colocated in its major data centers around the world.

The service can be used by companies in the financial industry to time-stampi trades with NIST (The National Institute of Standards and Technology) timing.  Equinix and Perseus have simplified this task by offering High Precision Time to Equinix customers in Chicago (CH1), Frankfurt (FR2), London (LD4), New York (NY4) and Tokyo (TY3).

Equinix said that by offering financial firms a standardized method of time-stamping trades globally, it enables them to more efficiently and cost effectively connect to the NIST time scale in Boulder, Colo. through the very data centers in which trades are occurring.

"With its network-rich data centers and savvy customer base ready to embrace new technology, Equinix was a natural partner in making High Precision Time globally available. We anticipate great demand for our solution and are looking at deepening our relationship with Equinix in Hong Kong, São Paulo, Singapore, Sydney and Toronto to proliferate our offering," stated Dr. Jock Percy, CEO, Perseus Telecom.
