Avelacom Enhances Low Latency Services to Access HKEX

Avelacom has enhanced its high-speed network performance and joined the HKEX ecosystem of network service providers. It now offers the market’s lowest latency route between London and Hong Kong.

Avelacom has added another point of presence (PoP) in Hong Kong at HKEX’s colocation data centre, which provides low latency access to HKEX markets for financial services firms across Europe, the Americas and APAC. The PoP enables the setup of broker-neutral, low latency connectivity to the HKEX trading environment, which is particularly valuable for market participants using high-speed algorithms such as for market making and arbitrage strategies.

In addition, in response to client requests for reduced latency between London and Hong King, Avelacom has completed significant network improvements with increased speed of up to 10.9 milliseconds. As a result, Avelacom has achieved the fastest round-trip time of 150.0 ms between London (Interxion) and Hong Kong (HKEX). 

Aleksey Larichev, CEO of Avelacom said: “East Asia is a key market for us, with many opportunities for low latency connectivity and hosting offerings. By combining network improvements with new PoP setup in HKEX data center, we’re providing world-beating low latency connections. This ensures improved services for Hong Kong’s well-established trading community, and access for traders across the world who have strong ties to Hong Kong including from London, Frankfurt, Singapore, Tokyo, Taipei, Sydney and Chicago.”

Andy Lee, HKEX Head of Hosting Services, said: “We are very pleased to have Avelacom join as part of our Hosting Services ecosystem. Members of our ecosystem will be able to easily access Avelacom’s services through a direct cross connect.”
