For many financial organizations trading in Brazil, the process of sourcing and deploying network infrastructure is proving to be difficult. There is growing demand for fully-optimized, low latency network services that enable companies to go to market quickly and efficiently.
One company that is helping to improve connectivity to the region is GTT Communications, Inc. (NYSE: GTT). Recently, GTT expanded its platform of industry-leading low latency services to Brazil’s financial markets. GTT is now offering a new full service, turnkey solution that includes ultra-low latency connectivity, time synchronization services, proximity hosting, hardware procurement, local consultancy, and installation and maintenance. These services will be available to local Brazilian and global clients who trade on the B3 Bolsa Balcão Brasil SA exchange which is one of the world’s largest financial market infrastructure providers.
“Brazil is a key growth market for the financial sector,” stated Rick Calder, GTT president and CEO. “GTT is committed to delivering a turnkey, latency-optimized service that enables near real-time access to critical market information for our financial clients doing business in Brazil.”
GTT’s Time Synchronization service complements its ultra-low latency transport services, offering clients a single source of time across their entire trading infrastructure to correlate data sets and time-stamp trade executions within microsecond UTC accuracy. The company will offer Time Synchronization in B3’s new colocation facility when its matching engine launches in November, 2017.
GTT’s new capabilities in Brazil expand on the company’s leadership in delivering low latency services between global financial centers. They also complement GTT’s ownership of the GTT Express cable system which is the fastest transatlantic route available.
