TMX Atrium, provider of smarter infrastructure solutions for the financial community, today announced that it is expanding its connectivity footprint by investing in mini-points of presence (POPs) in Paris and London.
Mini-POPs allow for rapid expansion into smaller data centres to address clients' needs for simpler and more cost effective access solutions. On the 9th July 2013, TMX Atrium announced the upgrade of its North American core network to support the needs of latency intolerant customers requiring higher-throughput and heightened access to market data feeds across the core fabric.
TMX Atrium's investment in mini-POPs in Paris and London is targeted at smaller clusters of clients located in smaller financial liquidity hubs. The mini-POPs enable fast and flexible connectivity to the TMX Atrium network and ensure clients can get on-net simply and quickly. With these multiple POPs, the additional deployments offer clients greater resilience and additional access options.
Emmanuel Carjat, Managing Director, TMX Atrium said, "We are constantly looking at ways to evolve the responsiveness and flexibility of the services available for our clients. Opening a series of mini-POPs across major cities ensures we can answer clients' demands for faster access as the TMX Atrium community continues to grow. It also ensures that TMX Atrium can quickly and easily reach smaller clusters of clients. These clients can have direct access to the depth and breadth of trading participants and multiple venues already connected to TMX Atrium."
