Geo to provide fibre connections to QuantHouse’s key data centres
Geo has announced that systematic trading offerings provider QuantHouse, has leased their dark fibre, in order to build out proprietary London fibre optic network.
The company said that it will provide fibre connections to QuantHouse’s key data centres including Equinix Slough, Telehouse East Docklands, Interxion, Equinix Park Royal, as well as to the London Stock Exchange (LSE).
Geo claimed that its fibre network, which is deep in London’s sewers, was chosen because of its ability to offer the lowest possible data latency, high network security and lowest overall cost of ownership.
Chris Smedley, chief executive of Geo, said: "QuantHouse is at the leading edge of low latency trading, an environment where microseconds provide a competitive edge. Geo beat competitors to deliver a solution with the lowest possible latency as part of the QuantHouse implementation.
"We were also chosen because of our wide, reliable network coverage in London which offers QuantHouse a much larger footprint. As our network is in the sewers, we can also offer them far greater levels of availability and resilience."
