BSO has completed the first phase of its comprehensive expansion into the United States, providing North American financial customers access to its specialized global network and establishing itself as a market-leading provider of low latency connectivity into and out of the country. The US finance community now has access to established and profitable emerging markets via BSO’s strategically chosen routes, which are constantly being optimized to achieve the lowest latency possible. BSO’s expansion brings its network full circle around the world, connecting 20 countries, 91 data centers and, now, all coasts and borders of the US — and solidifies BSO fiber infrastructure as a gateway to the globe.
BSO’s new premium ultra low latency trading routes between Chicago and key financial hubs in Moscow, Dubai and Mumbai connect the company’s customers with the center of the derivatives market. Likewise, its new metro network in New York City provides the local financial community with a single point of entry to BSO’s global network. The company also expanded its network to the US-Mexico border with a new PoP in McAllen Data Center in South Texas — BSO’s “Gateway to Mexico” — and to the West Coast with PoPs in One Wilshire in Los Angeles and Equinix-Filigree Court in Ashburn, Virginia. Most recently, BSO expanded into its third on-net data center in Chicago at 717 S Wells, one of the city’s most connected buildings.
“BSO is tackling the US market head-on with its low latency, high-capacity focus,” stated Michael Howard, senior research director and advisor at IHS Markit. “I like BSO’s innovative yet pragmatic approach to selective global connectivity. I believe financial companies will want to evaluate BSO when looking for the fastest, most reliable trading routes around the world.”
“Our recent investments in our US backbone speak to our dedication to reducing latencies on the world’s busiest financial trading routes and redefining connectivity on a global scale,” says Michael Ourabah, CEO at BSO. “We’ve started off strong in the North American market by linking the continent to established and emerging markets in Europe, the Middle East, South America and Asia — and vice versa. But this is just the beginning of a massive push to bring BSO’s market-leading, ultra low latency solutions to the region.”
