Thomson Financial has recruited BT Radianz to provide network and connectivity services for its low latency data feed.
Under the global deal, BT Radianz will provide connectivity for the Thomson Data Feed (TDF), giving clients access to exchanges available in low latency.
Last week Thomson said it was embedding low latency technology developed by New York-based Wombat Financial Software in its real-time data feed.
Through TDF, Thomson will offer low latency access to exchanges, with multiple deployment options, including on-site, hosted, and co-location services.
Matthew Burkley, president, enterprise solutions, Thomson Financial, says BT Radianz adds great value to the TDF low latency offering.
"Through TDF, we will be offering the only complete solution for real-time data feed clients - including latency, delivery and platform options. With the dynamics in the marketplace changing, our clients demand optimum performance," adds Burkley.
Chris Church, EVP, global sales and industry relations, BT Radianz, says speed continues to be a critical factor as trading strategies become more sophisticated and the timeframe in which the trade is executed grows smaller.
"With a BT Radianz low latency connection to Thomson Financial's real-time content, firms gain access to the information they need to execute their strategies quickly and intelligently," says Church.
