Exchange Wireless Service is a very low latency radio link operating between London Stock Exchange Group’s data centre located in the City of London, Equinix Slough facility and ICE Basildon facility.

The service utilises the latest millimetre-wave technology and offers clients the opportunity to secure between 100Mbps to 1Gbps channel to send data between the two key strategic locations.

What is millimetre-wave?
Millimetre-wave is a radio wave that uses directional line-of-sight repeaters located on towers and appropriate building rooftops between the two locations to transmit and receive data. Millimetre-waves operate at a much higher frequency and allow greater bandwidth than microwave services.
