Network infrastructure and data center services provider SSE Enterprise Telecoms, part of the SSE group, has attained Accredited Connectivity Partner (ACP) status with the London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG). The accreditation enables SSE Enterprise Telecoms the ability to offer its customers' customers the direct connections to the London Stock Exchange.
LSEG operates a broad range of international equity, bond and derivatives markets. It also offers a direct and dedicated connectivity service – Customer Managed Connectivity (CMC) – that enables customers to access these markets via ACPs.
SEE Enterprise Telecom says it can offer a range of low-latency, diverse routing options, using either dark fiber or managed wavelength services to the London City, Docklands, and Slough data centers. Through Optical Transport Network (OTN) interfaces, LSEG customers can connect to over 70 commercial data centers nationally at speeds of up to 100 Gbps with multiple separately routed channels where needed. The optical transport systems for these services come from Ciena (NYSE:CIEN; see "SSE Telecoms links UK data centers with Ciena 100G").
"SSE Enterprise Telecoms' network offers a valuable addition to our choice of Accredited Connectivity Partners," commented Nigel Harold, head of business development – technology at the London Stock Exchange Group. "We are confident that SSE's infrastructure and experience will benefit our Customer Managed Connectivity service, meeting the needs of clients who require connections via reliable, low latency networks."
