McKay Brothers Slashes Latency Between Tokyo and Singapore

TOKYO, November 16, 2016

McKay Brothers International is now live with its first Asia route, offering private bandwidth at the lowest known latency between Tokyo and Singapore. The route between the Tokyo and SGX data centers delivers data less than 63 milliseconds round trip. MBI will also offer Asia-sourced market data on its Quincy Extreme Data service utilizing its hybrid microwave and fiber path.

“We are thrilled to offer Asia traders and risk managers a level playing field for the best latency between Tokyo and Singapore,” says MBI managing director Francois Tyc. “We will expand with other Asia routes in the near future.”

McKay Brothers debuted its first US microwave route in 2012, offering the lowest known latency between Chicago and New Jersey. MBI opened its first European routes between London and Frankfurt in 2014, also at the lowest known latency. The QED market data service utilizes both those networks to distribute US and Europe-sourced market data. A hallmark of the company’s services is that the best latency is offered to each subscriber.

“Our commitment to an equal latency for all subscribers is a core principle of McKay,” added Tyc. “We believe that markets are stronger and fairer when the best latency is available to all participants.”

McKay Brothers’ private bandwidth service offers private microwave bandwidth between Illinois and New Jersey as well as the UK and continental Europe. The company also offers millimeter wave service between key data centers within Illinois, New Jersey and the London metro area. The QED service distributes select data from eleven exchanges in the US and Europe and has more in development. The company’s eighteen points of presence are located at major trading hubs in the US, the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Japan, and Singapore.
