Telx Lowers Latency to NYSE Mahwah

Proximity data centre operator Telx is tapping into new fibre routes from Cross River Fiber to lower latency to NYSE Euronext’s Mahwah, NJ data centre.

Cross River’s new fibre runs directly through Clifton, NJ where Telx operates its existing NJR2 data centre, with NJR3 under construction. The fibre then runs on to Secaucus, NJ (where Equinix has facilities) and Weehawken, NJ (where a Savvis facility is located). The Mahwah to Clifton route is the most direct one into Mahwah, offering competitive latency to existing Mahwah to Secaucus connections.

The NYSE’s decision to open up access to Mahwah is driving the construction of fibre into it from data centres housing other markets, in order to facilitate cross-market trading.

For more on Cross River Fiber, read this Q&A with the company’s Michael Sevret.
