Have you heard about BSO’s U.S. expansion plan? This has been no slow, leisurely stroll through the country — more of an aggressive, determined swoop. In a matter of months, the London-based global Ethernet network, cloud and hosting provider has completed the first phase, delivering the company’s network full circle around the world, connecting all U.S. coasts and borders to BSO’s routes and solidifying BSO’s fiber infrastructure as a gateway to the globe.
And this company is nowhere near done with its work in the nation; it just announced the launch of Phase 2 of its U.S. expansion, which will include initiatives to further optimize BSO’s specialist network to meet the changing needs of the financial community. Building on the groundwork of the initial phase, BSO will continue to extend and refine its network and solutions, holding fast to its mission of remaining flexible and quickly reacting to market changes.
Let’s take a quick look at the initiatives BSO has already completed in the U.S. In the second half of 2016, the company announced a fast-paced series of projects that linked the U.S. finance ecosystem with the world via BSO’s low latency, highly-secure network. BSO’s new premium ultra low latency trading routes between Chicago and key financial hubs in Moscow, Dubai and Mumbai connect the company’s customers with the center of the derivatives market. Likewise, its new metro network in New York City provides the local financial community with a single point of entry to BSO’s global network. The company also expanded its network to the US-Mexico border with a new PoP in McAllen Data Center in South Texas — BSO’s “Gateway to Mexico” — and across the nation with PoPs in One Wilshire in Los Angeles and Equinix-Filigree Court in Ashburn, Virginia. Most recently, BSO expanded into its third on-net data center in Chicago at 717 S Wells, one of the city’s most connected buildings.
“BSO is tackling the U.S. market head-on with its low-latency, high-capacity focus,” stated Michael Howard, senior research director and advisor at IHS Markit. “I like BSO’s innovative yet pragmatic approach to selective global connectivity. I believe financial companies will want to evaluate BSO when looking for the fastest, most reliable trading routes around the world.”
“One of our guiding principles is our flexible approach, which provides the freedom to continuously evolve within the fluid financial landscape and proactively address our customers’ needs,” says Michael Ourabah, CEO at BSO. “So far, we’ve created solid groundwork for our U.S. expansion, and now we’re going to further build out and optimize our specialized routes. Watch out for rapid movement from us on the U.S. front in the coming months as we listen and react to the demands of the financial community.”
