NexGen Develops Increased UK Presence at Equinix Slough Datacenter

Extra datacenter space promises greater efficiency, lower latency for NexGen clients

New York, NY, January 15, 2014 --( NexGen Networks, the premier provider of fiber optic-based network solutions to the world’s top financial services firms and global enterprises, has announced the acquisition of additional space at the Equinix datacenter at 8 Buckingham Ave, Slough, UK. The expansion resolutely answers the increased demand for more resilient, diverse services into the datacenter campus. The move establishes a direct route for data traffic from Slough to the US, which translates to greater diversity and lower latency for NexGen clients.

“In an environment where milliseconds of latency are unacceptable expenses, financial firms rely on premier service providers like NexGen to provide a competitive edge,” says NexGen’s Jeff Barth. “Our expanded presence in Slough means that our clients’ data transits to the US without having to traverse London first. This provides for minimal latency, which is particularly crucial for financial market trading applications.”

Situated 20 miles (32 kilometers) west of London, the new datacenter space accommodates the needs of clients in some of the world’s top financial exchanges, as well as market data and cloud hosting providers. Financial companies in the UK employ hundreds of thousands of people and bank holdings stand at 400% of the GDP, and NexGen continues to be strongly positioned among the top-tier service providers in the region.

With continually growing points of presence around the world, NexGen has become one of the most trusted names for critically important high-speed fiber-optic service for organizations that require world-class services. NexGen is poised to offer services to any of the wide array of companies in the region with its diverse, customizable options that can accommodate any industry and any size of business.
