Deutsche Börse is expanding its portfolio of trading and market data connections to include bandwidth of 10 Gbit/s for connectivity to the Eurex derivatives market and the Xetra cash market.
This measure is part of the continuous development of Deutsche Börse's system landscape which is particularly focused on minimising latency for transactions and data feeds. By raising the bandwidth to 10 Gbit/s using ultra-low latency network technology, the network run-time for co-location clients will be significantly reduced and as consequence, liquidity on Eurex and Xetra should further benefit.
The 10 Gbit/s connectivity will be realised based on standardised cable lengths, guaranteeing all co-location clients the same conditions for minimal latency. Clients who apply for a 10 Gbit/s connection by 17 October 2011 will be able to use it immediately from the launch on 12 December 2011.
