B2N today announced that B2N's feed handler for the Bloomberg B-Pipe high speed data feed has been awarded Platinum authorization.
Customers can now benefit from this full-featured high-performance feed handler as well as accessing B-Pipe data from the already existing applications based on MarketHub, B2N's flagship product. Also benefiting will be Reuters Market Data System (RMDS) users thanks to the gateway from MarketHub to RMDS.
Following eight months of intensive development B2N's high-performance feed handler was introduced to the market in December 2006. Bloomberg has since granted B2N Platinum authorization, reflecting that the handler fulfilled the highest standards required for a full featured BPipe feed handler.
