McKay Brothers Launches Low-Latency Connectivity Between Chicago Hub and Asian Centres

Low-latency wireless networking specialist McKay Brothers International is now offering private bandwidth between the Chicago exchange data centre hub in Aurora, Illinois, and major trading venues in Asia, expanding the global reach of its low-latency connectivity services. End points McKay offers in Asia include Tokyo, Hong Kong, Singapore and Shanghai. For ultra-low latency circuits, the company is leveraging its wireless expertise in combination with fibre wherever possible.

The company’s first hybrid wireless/fiber network in Asia – between Tokyo and Singapore – opened in 2016. Last year, McKay launched what it claimed to be the fastest link between Illinois and Busan, Korea, and has since expanded to offer connectivity to Hong Kong and Shanghai.
