RTS chose KVH for its ultra-low latency networks, robust data centers, and thorough knowledge of the Japanese market. KVH matched RTS' needs for high-performance and low-latency connectivity services in Tokyo to meet the growing demand among financial market players outside of Asia for access to the Japanese markets. Through KVH's services, RTS' newly established presence in Japan will offer global high-speed access to a full ecosystem of capital market participants including the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE), Osaka Stock Exchange (OSE), Tokyo Commodity Exchange (TOCOM) and all major brokers.

In 2013, significant changes are expected among the major Japanese exchanges, including advancements in next generation trading platforms and the development of Japan Exchange Group (JPX, the recent merger between TSE and OSE), generating a growing international interest in this market. This has led to an increasing need among traders for innovative service providers that enable optimal trading with Japan's exchanges. As both RTS and KVH continue to strengthen their offerings in Japan and expand throughout Asia, they plan to collaboratively deliver premium trading solutions for traders wanting to capitalize on Japan's evolving financial market.

RTS CEO Steffen Gemuenden, who recently relocated from Chicago to Singapore, said: "We are delighted to partner with KVH on this important expansion in Japan as part of our dedicated growth efforts in Asia. As the premier provider of the lowest latency network in Japan, KVH is enabling us to operate a robust data center that meets our clients' growing demand by featuring a full range of hosting services, ultra-low latency access to liquidity pools of the key Japanese markets and superb international arbitrage opportunities."

Dr. Zhongmin Guo, Executive Vice President, Business Development Division of KVH, said: "We are excited to be entering this partnership with RTS as the firm expands into Japan, strengthening its presence across Asia and globally. Combining our extensive experience in serving the financial services market in Asia with leading-edge data centers and low-latency network solutions, with RTS' trusted trading solutions, KVH is confident that traders across the world will be receiving connectivity and hosting solutions of the highest caliber through these new offerings."

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub.

Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.

It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

In this power panel at @...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
