Japan's NTT Com has launched a new ultra-low latency connectivity service between the financial markets of Tokyo in Japan and Chicago in the United States.

The operator said the JPX-Chicago Co-Location Direct service offers the industry's lowest latency for connectivity between Japan Exchange Group's (JPX) colocation centre and the Cermak data center used by Chicago's financial market.

A point of presence in the JPX colocation center links directly to NTT Com's PC-1 subsea cable to support high frequency trading between the two markets.

Customers will be able to seamlessly use cross connections in both centres to ensure trades are implemented as quickly as possible.

NTT Com also delivers connectivity services between JPX and financial markets in Hong Kong and Singapore.
