Industry partnerships, customer experience and local expertise driving growth
6th April 2016 – London, UK – BSO Network Solutions (BSO), the global Ethernet network, cloud and hosting provider, is seeing unparalleled demand for its network services to and from India, one of which is BSO’s increasingly popular Mumbai to London route (RTD 109ms). This connects established North American and European marketplaces with the financial data centre hub, Bandra Kurla Complex (BKC).
A number of macro-economic and local factors in India are driving this growth. This includes impressive national GDP figures (7.3% annually in 2015), the financial community’s appetite for an alternative high-growth investment opportunity following Chinese stock losses, and BSO’s connectivity to other trading locations in the Asia-Pacific region.
Michael Ourabah, CEO at BSO, said, “India is definitely the ‘golden child’ of the financial community at the moment. Demand for our services has never been higher, both from international financial organisations leveraging local investment opportunities, and from Indian companies searching for a nimbler, more flexible telecoms provider. We have made significant investments to ensure we are supporting customers that are operating in this region.”
BSO’s relationships with specialist technology providers are also fuelling demand. An example is financial gateway services connecting traders to global venues, especially those supporting Indian Rupee (INR) FX and Coppers futures. These services naturally complement BSO’s leading network service that connects Chicago to Mumbai and other strategic locations such as New York, London, Dubai, Shanghai, Singapore and Hong Kong.
Alongside its engineering enhancements, BSO also simplifies how companies connect to the Indian sub-continent. The company offers an alternative to regional operators, with market-leading services across the telecommunication infrastructure in the area. Essentially, BSO eases the business and IT challenges and pain points that accompany such a dynamic, diverse part of the world.
BSO clients that are located in Bandra Kurla Complex, for example, experience this market-leading service every day. This data centre park houses the IT for a number of major exchanges and financial organisations, including the National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) and the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). Beyond the company’s presence in BKC, BSO’s network also connects the Multi Commodity Exchange of India (MCX) and the Bombay Metal Exchange (BME) in Mumbai.
