Perseus Connects BLK to BM&F Bovespa for Enhanced Liquidity and DMA

SAO PAULO– 15 July 2013Perseus Telecom, a leading provider of ultra-low latency, high-capacity global networks, today announced BLK Sistemas Financeiros has connected to the BM&F Bovespa through the Perseus Telecom LiquidPath connection of sub 50 microseconds. LiquidPath, launched late in 2012 by Perseus, connects the ALOG/Equinix (SP1) datacenter with the BM&F Bovespa data center (CT1) in less than 50 microseconds Round Trip Delay (RTD).

Perseus Telecom, winners of the Global Telecoms Business Innovation award in 2012 for building the fastest connection between the Nasdaq OMX datacenter in New York and the BM&F Bovespa data center in Sao Paulo, has since launched its LiquidPath product, which furthers the commitment to market-to-market trading. LiquidPath assists brokers, vendors and their customers with international communications, infrastructure support and ultra low-latency last mile connectivity to exchanges.

Rogério Paiva, Managing Director at BLK Sistemas Financeiros, said, “we carefully selected Perseus Telecom, who is well known in Brazil for its exchange connectivity platform, LiquidPath, which has helped ensure the best performance locally for our customers.”

BLK Sistemas Financeiros specializes in electronic and algorithmic trading with new infrastructure developed in Brazil called ‘Proximity Colocation’ for high speed electronic trading operations. BLK customers utilize a sophisticated ultra-low latency straight through processing environment, based on the latest technological advancements available.

“BLK Sistemas Financeiros is a great new addition to the Perseus Telecom community, connecting to our global network from Brazil,” said Marcos Guimaraes, President of Perseus Telecom Brazil. “BLK can now help its customers take advantage of our LiquidPath infrastructure to provide access to the BM&F Bovespa for its trading customers, but also to other exchanges in the 60 global markets Perseus serves.”
