Perseus Shaves Milliseconds to Sao Paulo

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.
