Fixnetix Quick to Offer Proximity Hosting with the Johannesburg Stock Exchange

London and Johannesburg- 11th November 2014

Fixnetix is pleased to announce that they can now offer an improved co-location option for clients connecting to the Johannesburg Stock Exchange.

The JSE launched their new co-location centre in May 2014, which allows the fastest access possible to all JSE markets. Roundtrip latency is drastically reduced when compared with the next nearest data centre, which is located in the Johannesburg suburb of Sandton.

As a major global Managed Services company, Fixnetix is already a JSE accredited shared infrastructure provider for primary and secondary trading solutions, network and connectivity solutions, managed services and co-location. Fixnetix has also provided the JSE’s point of presence (PoP) in the UK since 2011.

This new venture with the JSE strengthens the relationship between the exchange and Fixnetix, as well as allowing for Fixnetix to improve its services to clients who want ultra-low latency connectivity for trading and real-time market data access to the JSE.
