The Share Centre revamps network with C&W

UK online broking portal The Share Centre has contracted with Cable & Wireless BTN for a revamped network architecture to support its Internet trading activity.

The upgraded Share Centre site, which currently has over 9000 unique customers accessing their accounts and dealing online, is supported by a C&W implemented architecture that includes load balancing, caching and SSL acceleration.

Richard Evans, systems manager at The Share Centre, says: "Overall, we have 130,000 customers who could potentially trade at our site, so we needed to consider how to accommodate these users in the future, and build a network that would scale as we require.

"The Internet site has taken over £10 million of orders in the past month and that figure is constantly growing thanks in part to the immediate dealing system we are now operating."
