NTT Com Cuts Latency for JPX-SGX Interconnect

NTT Communications has activated a new, ultra-low-latency connectivity service between the Japan Exchange Group (JPX) and Singapore Exchange (SGX). This new connectivity service will offer the telecom industry’s lowest-latency level for international leased lines that directly connect the colocation facilities of JPX and SGX.


The carrier claims a latency of just 63.5 milliseconds between JPX’s Access Point 3-equipped data center (AP3 center), where many financial institutions have their servers, and SGX’s data center. The latency level is a round-trip latency measured using a 1Gbps test cable and 1000Base-LX/64-bite packet environment. The latency level may vary depending on network environment.

Since April 2015, NTT Com's JPX-SGX Co-Location Direct has been providing the lowest-level latency between JPX and SGX at 63.7 milliseconds by leveraging the company's Asia Submarine Cable Express (ASE), the shortest cable route between Japan and Singapore. This new connectivity service succeeds in further shortening that time by adding an NTT Com Point of Presence (PoP) at the AP3 center in a more advantageous location that connects to the landing point via the shortest possible route. Additionally, since the new PoP is directly connected to the structured cable, an external connection is no longer needed, ultimately reducing the lead time.
