BSO Reflects on Another Impressive Year

Numerous service enhancements and network expansions deliver strong growth

BSO has had one of its most successful, expansive years to date. 2016 saw the company make substantial advancements to its Ultra Low Latency network, extensive investment in BSO’s U.S. connectivity and an increase in its international points-of-presence (PoP) by 30%.

Since being named an FStech finalist for Technology Provider of the Year in late 2015, BSO has continued along its path of redefining connectivity and challenging what it means to be a telecoms and cloud provider for data critical organisations. 2016’s highlights include:

  • America – aggressive expansion into the U.S. as a fast, flexible provider offering a fresh customer experience. Highlights include:

–          The launch of ‘BSO-FX Ultra Low’ between New York City, London and Tokyo

–          BSO’s New York City metro circuit connecting the city’s key financial data centres

–          A new PoP at McAllen Data Centre improving links to Central and South America

–          New PoPs in Chicago, Los Angeles and Virginia, completing BSO’s fully diverse network circuit around the world

  • Europe, Asia and Middle East – extensive optimisations on other strategic routes including:

–          The lowest latencies available in the market between Dubai Gold & Commodities Exchange (DGCX) and key financial hubs such as London, Mumbai and Chicago

–          An optimised London Mumbai route, direct connectivity into Bandra Kurla Complex

–          Mumbai Connect: a new service enabling High Frequency Traders (HFT) ultra-fast, reliable connectivity to / from India, leading to 100% customer growth in the region since January 2016

–          Direct access into Spain’s BME through Visual Trader

–          New connectivity through IXcellerate in Russia, improving connectivity into Asia

–          A strategic partnership with Accedian, enabling BSO to monitor real-time latencies and performance across multiple cross-continental routes

  • Service Enhancements – constant re-investment and strengthening of BSO’s own customer experience shown by:

–          The launch of ‘BSO Service Desk’, providing customers with even faster response times, a simplified client ticketing interface and improved transparency

–          A doubling of the company’s engineering support team and a new Asian technical support base

–          Restructuring the company’s executive team and responsibilities to deliver on its ambitious international expansion plans

BSO’s CEO Michael Ourabah said, “Looking back on 2016 makes me immensely proud. Our team’s commitment and energy has never faltered and we’ve delivered a long list of improvements for our customers’ benefits. I’m relishing the next twelve months. We’re delivering the next phase of our U.S. expansion strategy, have new routes launching soon, and are trusted by a committed, growing customer base that believes in our approach. 2017 will be an exciting year!
