Interactive Data Reduces Latency With New Asia Ticker Plants

from Yahoo: 

>>HONG KONG--(Marketwire -06/27/12)- Interactive Data Corporation, a leading global provider of managed ultra-low latency IT and market data services to facilitate electronic trading today announced that its ticker plants in Asia are now live. Based in two data centres in Hong Kong, the new ticker plants offer a significant reduction in the latency of PlusFeed(SM), Interactive Data's low-latency, consolidated global data feed.
With increasing adoption of electronic trading in Asia, market data has become a crucial issue. Firms require high quality data at the desired speed from across the region. The new ticker plants, located with Pacnet at MEGA-iAdvantage and with Equinix in their HK1 facility, provide Interactive Data's clients with lower latency access to Asian venues covered by PlusFeed, as well as to a wide range of additional international sources.
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 optimised low-latency delivery of Asian data via the Interactive Data sites in Hong Kong.
Direct or cross-connect access to a wide range of global exchanges is also available in Asia through Interactive Data's Points of Presence (POPs) with leading global providers of data centers and technology services, including Equinix, Inc. (EQIX), Interxion, Telex and KVH.
