AT TOKYO Kansai Chuo Center (KC1)
Designated as Kansai Proximity Area for the Japan Exchange Group

AT TOKYO Corporation (Headquarters: Koto-ku, Tokyo, President and Chief Executive Officer: Akira Nakamura; hereinafter referred to as "AT TOKYO") announces that its Kansai Chuo Center (KC1), operating in the center of Osaka City, has been designated by the Japan Exchange Group (JPX) as a Proximity Area for its new access point (AP4) in the Kansai region.

The KC1 JPX Kansai Proximity Area is located within the same building as AP4, and facilitates connectivity to JPX and other systems by using the JPX Kansai Proximity Connectivity Services.
Amid ever-growing uncertainty over the potentially severe impact of large-scale natural disasters on business operations, our financial institution clients can now benefit from using KC1 as a backup site given the greatly reduced risk of the Kansai region undergoing a catastrophic disaster at the same time as the Tokyo area.
