Just 106 milliseconds roundtrip, is the published latency for Perseus Telecom’s new low-latency connection between Nasdaq’s Carteret, NJ data centre and the Sao Paulo-based Brazilian securities, commodities and futures marketplace, awkwardly named BM&FBOVESPA. Perseus is leveraging GlobeNet’s submarine cable to go south.
That’s the fastest we know of. Orange Business Services Trading Solutions (yeah, another awkward name) has been touting a NYC to Sao Paulo link of 115 milliseconds roundtrip.
Atrium Network – now a unit of Canada’s TMX exchange group – also offers connectivity to Sao Paulo, as does CFN Services (into local broker Link Investimentos). But the latency of their routes isn’t known at this time.
