This connectivity is made possible through the company’s new dark fibre metro network service, which has been specifically designed for financial organisations interested in low latency connectivity between these strategic locations.
Michael Ourabah, CEO at BSO, said, ‘This is another landmark in our ongoing investment in the Asia Pacific region. Tokyo remains one of the most diverse trading locations in the world, however the metropolitan area is densely populated and reliable connectivity between data facilities often comes at a premium. Simplicity and the customer experience are at the heart of our new network service. We believe this will significantly reduce the complexity associated with accessing Tokyo’s markets, particularly for companies already holding IT assets in the city’s legacy data centres.’
BSO’s expansion brings the company’s presence in Asia Pacific up to 16 data centres and 70 globally. All BSO’s Asia Pacific POPs are in key financial locations critical to the international financial community. These include Singapore, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Mumbai, Johannesburg and Sydney, where BSO supports clients with connectivity into global markets such as Dubai, Chicago, New York, London and Frankfurt.
