Unsurpassed, Ultra-low Latency Connectivity to Exchanges Around the World

TNS is at the forefront of innovating low latency trading solutions for trading participants, being the first provider to offer a layer 1 connectivity solution in all global regions.

We take a completely different approach to network architecture and pioneered a solution to ensure the lowest latency possible by managed service providers today. Client servers connect directly to our layer 1 exchange switches for a deterministic latency profile of 5-85 nanoseconds (10x faster than our competitors). A more direct architecture also means lower latency, fewer failure problems, and could even reduce your costs for market connectivity.

More Options for Low Latency Connectivity

TNS understands that not all strategies require the lowest possible latency within the colo. For those participants, TNS has a premium product, which utilizes layer 3 distribution. Regardless of the deployment design your firm chooses, our infrastructure provides a substantially optimized, latency sensitive, and cost-effective platform for your trading operation.
