NTT Comm. Builds Low Latency, Trans-Pacific Data Connections

NTT America is supplying major commodity exchanges, investment firms, and hedge funds with low latency routes available for transpacific data connections. NTT America is now offering off-the-shelf services between Chicago and Tokyo, and New York City and Tokyo, as well as industry leading service level agreements (SLAs), including some of the lowest transpacific latency available in the industry. These data routes have proven critical in the success of high-frequency trading (HFT) and algorithmic trading for the financial markets and are available through NTT America via NTT Communications' acquisition of Pacific Crossing and the PC-1 transpacific cable system.
