The connection will provide customers with low-latency networks.
SSE Enterprise Telecoms has partnered with London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG), providing its customers with the ability to connect directly to London Stock Exchange.
The new LSEG service offers next generation optical networking gateways using “OTN” optical transport networking interfaces. This enables LSEG customers to connect to over 70 commercial data centres nationally with very short lead times, cost effectively, with speeds of up to 100Gbps with various different routed channels needed.
It follows the construction of new network routes, both under the streets in traditional ducts, as well as far deeper underground in the waste water network.
London Stock Exchange customers will be provided with a range of low latency, a diverse routing option that uses either dark fibre or manage wavelength services to London City, Docklands and Slough data centres.
