Thomson Financial's order routing network AutEx is to be made available to users of FIXedge, the FIX engine brought to market by B2bits and Sun Microsystems.
The FIXedge appliance supports version 4.4 of the front office messaging protocol and is also available over Sun Linux servers.
Thomson says AutEx will be marketed globally to new segments in the broker and buy-side communities by all parties. Installation and integration will be led by Thebes.
Seperately, Thomson has struck an agreement with French trading technology firm GL to integrate the GL Mosaic trading station with the Thomson One Equity and Thomson One Advisor platforms, enabling users to view the markets, and trade on them directly from a single user interface. As part of the agreement, GL Trade's proprietary international network, GL NET, will provide Thomson with global access to more than 60 equity and derivatives markets and more than 300 brokers.
In another market data deal, Thomson Financial has become the first vendor to offer FTSE data in a live environment using the recently-announced FTSE Global Distribution Service, initiated via Radianz.
