Quanthouse has partnered with Cisco to deliver an ultra-low latency network across Asia for the high speed transmission of data.
As has been well documented, the global rise in high frequency trading and the concomitant increase in demand for hyper-low latency technology have grown exponentially. Buy- and sell-side trading firms are being forced to improve their infrastructures and constantly seek solutions to reduce latency at increasing marginal rates. Companies, in turn, have responded with solutions that push the limits of data physics. The burgeoning adoption of microwave networks is one example of the latest innovations in the space.
The two companies are delivering technologies that allow clients to access the Asian exchanges at the optimum speed. The offering combines the QuantLINK proprietary fiber optic network and Cisco’s AlgoBoost technology to deliver market data to servers (in financial trading centers) with latencies as low as 190-nanoseconds.

In a company statement, Stephane Leroy, Head of Sales and Marketing at QuantHouse, part of S&P Capital IQ commented: “Algo trading is a highly competitive and ultra-fast-paced world. We understand our clients’ priorities have to be reliability, flexibility and performance, above all else. The latest expansion of our QuantLINK solution, together with Cisco’s offering, allows us to answer industry demands.”
Mado Bourgoin, Director at Cisco continued: “Our aim is to help financial traders accelerate price discovery, increase order flow liquidity and better manage regulatory requirements. Through our work with various technology firms, such as QuantHouse, we are enabling clients to adopt a combination of technologies that are proven to both increase network performance and reduce latency.”
