Transaction Network Services (TNS) is now offering the fastest market data in the industry from NYSE, CBOE and Nasdaq after upgrading its network with the TNSXpress Layer 1 solution in three key New York area data centers.

TNSXpress Layer 1 uses a simple, single hop architecture that is up to 10 times faster than traditional Layer 3 architectures and delivers connectivity as low as 5-85 nanoseconds. It is now available in the NYSE data center in Mahwah, NJ, the Equinix NY4 data center in Secaucus, NJ, and Nasdaq’s data center in Carteret, NJ.
