Euronext and Liffe announced today that their new high capacity trading services have been well received among their customers.
Liffe has received orders from over 60 customers for dual 100Mbps connectivity and orders from over 20 customers for its purpose-built Co-Location facility, both services which will be available from Q2 2008. Euronext has received orders from over 20 customers for dual 100Mbps connectivity available from January 2008 and its Co-Location offering will be made available to customers by the end of Q1 2008.
The new 100Mbps broadband access will enable customers to benefit from high speed access to both market data and order entry on Euronext and Liffe markets, to match the constantly increasing order flow and market data volumes.
Euronext and Liffe are also offering traders the ability to co-locate their trading servers besides NSC and LIFFE CONNECT matching engines. Co-Location offers the fastest possible access to market, thus significantly reducing the transit time to the Euronext and Liffe central order books.
These services are consistent with Euronext and Liffe commitment to meet their customers' need for speed, flexibility, capacity and reliability.
