Low Latency Financial Network Solutions
HFT firms only make up 2-3% of the brokerages, but account for more than 75% of the trading volume in the domestic US. These firms, the arbitrage they execute, and the matching engines they deploy demand an ultra-low latency network solution to ensure that the trade is executed successfully before the competition.
The ability to successfully execute financial transactions in the fastest time possible can mean the difference between millions of dollars earned or lost every day.
Lightower is the undisputed leader among network providers serving the financial services industry carrying trillions of dollars of trades per day. The company is connected to over 40 exchanges and persistently invests in its network to exceed the diversity, availability, and low-latency demands of its customers. With consistent innovative deployments, Lightower fosters strategic-long term relationships with its clients, including NYSE Technologies, whose SFTI global network has relied on Lightower network solutions for over 10 years.
Our commitment to innovation and best-of-class service led us to build and recently upgrade the industry’s most advanced high-speed financial services network—the Xtreme Ultra-Low Latency Network. This game-changing network provides customers with a direct connection between key financial exchanges and major data centers throughout New York, New Jersey and Chicago, which extended low-latency connectivity to London and Toronto.
