Activ Financial and KVH Partner to Deliver Low-Latency Market Data in Japan

Activ Financial, a provider of fully managed low-latency market data solutions, and KVH, a Japanese provider of managed network and IT infrastructure services, will partner to provide global and local financial institutions with low-latency market data solutions in Japan based on optical networks and data centres close to exchanges.

The partnership will allow customers access to global market data feeds and an on-site ticker plant with direct access to Japanese exchanges, such as Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) and Osaka Securities Exchange (OSE), at ultra low latency and with highly cost-effective pricing, leveraging shared or dedicated hosted infrastructure.

Activ selected KVH as its network and hosting partner in Japan for its ultra low-latency network and high quality services. KVH’s uniquely designed high-speed network provides ultra low latency connectivity to all major Japanese exchanges from major cities and financial hubs in the world. Moreover, KVH Tokyo Data Centre is endorsed by Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM) and Tokyo Financial Exchange (TFX) as their access points and a data centre for proximity hosting.

“Low latency networks have become an extremely important competitive parameter in today’s trading environment. Since its founding, KVH has developed its own optical fiber networks using a simple hierarchy and the latest technologies to meet the high speed and quality needs of financial institutions. By combining KVH’s proximity services with Activ’s market data feed, our customers will gain all the benefits of a fully managed and consolidated market data solution,” said Zhongmin Guo, vice president, telco business unit of KVH.
