KVH Co. announced an agreement to launch “JPX-SGX Co-Location Direct”, an exchange-to-exchange ultra-low latency connectivity solution between two of Asia’s premier stock exchanges, Japan Exchange Group, Inc. (JPX) and Singapore Exchange (SGX). The service is a result of a strategic alliance between these two exchanges.

JPX-SGX Co-Location Direct addresses the high market demand between two of Asia’s most highly active financial markets, Tokyo and Singapore. KVH already provides highly reliable connectivity solutions in partnership with JPX for various global capital markets in Asia, Europe, and the US via arrownet-Global. In the case of JPX-SGX Co-Location Direct, KVH is deploying its own point of presence (“POP”) within the same data centers that house JPX and SGX’s exchange co-location services, allowing KVH to deliver significantly lower latency between these two exchanges as local access to reach the exchanges’ colocation sites is unnecessary. Customers that use this service through KVH will enjoy KVH’s multilingual service support and will be able to take advantage of KVH’s comprehensive service portfolio and local market knowledge to tailor a solution specific to their business needs.

Ted Higase, President and CEO at KVH, was very positive about the development and stated:
Serving the capital markets is part of KVH’s DNA and has been a prime focus since our beginning. We pride ourselves in being recognized for best-in-class service and for being the network service provider of choice for the financial industry. We are honored to serve the mission-critical needs of trading participants between both Singapore and Tokyo and bring added value through our robust network and complementary services.

Ryusuke Yokoyama, Executive Officer at TSE commented as well:
JPX and KVH have a long-standing relationship as key partners committed to supporting the infrastructure for capital markets through the provisioning of arrownet. By leveraging KVH’s ultra-low latency network, overseas proximity data centers and skilled resources across the region, it is our pleasure to see the global expansion of this service as it offers great benefits to investors who access JPX and exchanges abroad. We would look forward to working with KVH as our partner as we continue to develop more exciting opportunities for investors.
