Swiss financial intermediary, swissinvest.com, has contracted with data communications firm KPNQwest for its intercontinental IP VPN solution. The agreement includes a scalable bandwidth option, to provide connection from the company's hosting centre in Glattbrugg, Switzerland to the Deutsche Boerse, Nasdaq and NYSE.
Swissinvest.com will use the virtual network to provide its corporate customers and end-users with the latest stock quotes, breaking developments, financial news, data and other time-sensitive information.
The service is deployed across the pan-European EuroRings network with redundant links to one 180,000 km global infrastructure, enabling data to be carried across the network with the fewest router hops and fastest round trip times (RTTs), claims the company.
Swissinvest.com will also have the option to deploy additional financial applications and services on top of the IP VPN.
