Zayo expands Brazil network
The expansion will play a pivotal role for the global communications infrastructure platform in facilitating high-frequency trading for its financial service customers, allowing trading participants direct access to trade execution and market data across multiple asset classes in what is a key Latin American hub.
The new route will offers pre-provisioned capacity and fixed routing to four different São Paulo data centres for fast service delivery, diversity and reliability. It joins Zayo’s global low latency network of high-speed routes connecting key commercial and financial exchanges across major markets, such as New York City, Chicago, the New Jersey Equity Triangle, and London.
The expansion into São Paulo and other key financial markets is a part of the company’s continued investment and improvement in its network. This year alone, Zayo has invested more than $250m towards network infrastructure expansion and improvement. The investment was used to complete new, long haul and subsea fibre routes as well as increase capacity and improve latency on the firm’s existing fibre footprint. Zayo also upgraded its Wave backbone from 100G to 400G in North America and Europe and increased capabilities and capacity for IP and DDoS Protection.
Derek Gillespie, managing director and global head of enterprise sales at Zayo says: “Zayo’s global low latency network is the lifeblood of major financial exchanges in the world. Our low latency and carrier-class services are fuelling some of the biggest centres of commerce and internet exchanges across the globe and solving major metro and reliability issues in areas that have typically been hard to execute on. This is why we are dedicated to continuously expanding, improving and diversifying our routes in order to support the fast-paced growth and high demand for connectivity that is essential to all of our clients’ growth and success.”
