JSE Launches co-location centre

The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) successfully launched its colocation centre in May to allow JSE clients to place their trading equipment in the JSE data centre for the fastest access to all JSE markets.

The centre, located on the JSE premises, will provide clients with the lowest latency connectivity for trading and the receipt of real-time data. Colocation will provide clients with a roundtrip latency of 150 microseconds compared to the existing 2550 microseconds it takes for clients who are in area surrounding the exchange.
