TMX Atrium, provider of smarter infrastructure solutions for the financial community, today announced that it has enhanced its ultra-low latency connectivity infrastructure across Europe. The 10-gigabits-per-second (Gbps) capacity has been added in response to anticipated customer demand for flexible and scalable connectivity to multiple markets across London and Europe and into Russia.
TMX Atrium has continuously upgraded its infrastructure to address increasing market data rates. This latest provision of additional bandwidth and reduced latency gives clients access to multiple markets using the same simple infrastructure. This multi-use infrastructure is capable of supporting multi-gigabit access and multicast, which is increasingly being adopted by exchanges worldwide.
Emmanuel Carjat, Managing Director, TMX Atrium, said, “Anticipating the demand from the international trading community remains an integral part of our global connectivity strategy. Our ability to successfully offer multi-venue trading opportunities has driven the need to upgrade our London core infrastructure. The enhanced London to Moscow via Stockholm path announced on 15th January 2013 enables clients based at any location in London to connect to Moscow at 10Gbps. We believe this high bandwidth/ultra-low latency capability provides participants with a competitive advantage and sets TMX Atrium apart from other connectivity providers.”
Carjat continued, “Since its inception in 2006, TMX Atrium has set out to offer connectivity solutions on a single platform that are designed to help the financial services community to quickly and easily increase their global coverage. As the adoption of technology, such as multicast and 10Gpbs connectivity, has become more wide-spread TMX Atrium has been able to re-engineer its flexible network in order to help more participants move off legacy connectivity platforms and take advantage of new markets and trading opportunities."
