Avelacom fully interconnects Seoul, Tokyo, HK, Singapore for crypto

Rick Steves

“With the rise of cloud adoption, we’re seeing a surge in Korean market participants, including both exchanges and trading firms, and mainly in digital assets.”

Avelacom has completed two new low-latency routes as part of its efforts to further expand connectivity in digital asset markets, this time facilitating the interconnection between Seoul, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

The low-latency solutions provider expanded options for crypto trading to/from Seoul <> Singapore, which complements its previously launched Seoul <> Tokyo route.

PoP at the KINX Gasan data center

Aleksey Larichev, CEO of Avelacom, said: “Seoul has always been a key trading hub, while also serving as a central point for connectivity. With the rise of cloud adoption, we’re seeing a surge in Korean market participants, including both exchanges and trading firms, and mainly in digital assets. This is driving an increase in demand for cloud-to-cloud, low latency connections. Our new routes ensure we are able to support the needs of the global crypto trading community, looking for geographically diverse trading opportunities, with Seoul being one of their top priorities.”

Avelacom’s point-of-presence (PoP) in Seoul is located at the KINX Gasan data center, specifically chosen to provide direct access to the AWS Northeast region, and consequently to South Korea’s biggest cloud-based crypto exchanges.

Asian PoPs linked to 100+ global data centers

The company recently launched a proprietary low-latency Seoul <> Tokyo route in order to fully interconnect Seoul, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Singapore.

Additionally, these are linked to over 100 global Avelacom PoPs, providing direct access to all global crypto exchanges. This level of connectivity supports time-critical trading strategies, such as arbitrage and market-making trading algorithms, as well as capturing real-time market data feeds.

According to Avelacom, all new routes are ready for service with guaranteed latencies up to microseconds and up to 99.9% network uptime.
