Hong Kong - Interactive Data Corporation has announced that its ticker plants in Asia are now live.
Based in Hong Kong and located with Pacnet at MEGA-iAdvantage and with Equinix in their HK1 facility, the new ticker plants aim to offer a reduction in the latency of PlusFeed, Interactive Data's data feed.
Interactive Data's new low-latency co-location facilities in Hong Kong will also offer international clients the option to co-locate their applications alongside the ticker plants. This will enable them to obtain low-latency delivery of Asian data via the Interactive Data sites in Hong Kong.
Emmanuel Doe, president, Trading Solutions Group for Interactive Data, said: "With the growth of electronic trading in Asia and higher data volumes globally, clients in Asian markets have an increasing need for cost-effective, real-time market data and delivery. We continue to expand our electronic trading services in Asia and elsewhere throughout the world to meet these requirements."
Dan Videtto, managing director for Asia Pacific for Interactive Data, added: "The addition of two new ticker plants within one of the region's primary trading hubs is a significant development. This is one of many enhancements that we will be delivering to Asian markets as we look to support firms in the region through our low latency data and global trading infrastructure solutions."
