Atrium Network, provider of smarter connectivity for the financial community, announced today that participants are signing up to access the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE), the largest U.S. options exchange and creator of listed options, via Atrium Network's POP, located in the CBOE facility at 400 South La Salle, Chicago.
CBOE options are now being accessed by Atrium Network's European customer base using the same infrastructure as existing Atrium Network US clients.
Atrium Network offers an ultra-low latency community extranet connecting multiple trading venues; irrespective of client location, participants connect once and benefit from resilient, secure and flexible access to a range of equity and foreign exchange venues. By co-locating at key liquidity venues, Atrium Network helps firms mitigate against significant co-location investment.
Emmanuel Pellé, COO of Atrium Network, said, "We continue to see an increase in demand for cross-border access to exchange venues and continue to witness firms connecting to us to access multiple venues to trade multiple asset-classes. We have invested in multi-gigabit access using low latency routes into key financial data centres throughout Europe and the Americas to ensure clients benefit from the fastest path to trading venues, such as CBOE."
Curt Schumacher, CBOE Chief Technology Officer, Systems Operations, added, "Providing choice and range of access options to our participants is a priority for CBOE, and we rely on fast, innovative technology that has the capacity and bandwidth to help deliver these efficiencies to our end client."
