It offers a high-quality service for market participants that trade often on the LME’s platforms, but whose strategies are not particularly focussed on low latency.

The LMEnet service leverages Colt’s PrizmNet core network, which is hosted on the cloud, coupled with ethernet access circuits from Colt and other carriers.

Benefits include use of the unique service monitoring tool and scalable bandwidth.
