NYSE Technologies, the commercial technology unit of NYSE Euronext (NYX), is extending its global trading network, the Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI), to the Equinix London LD4 International Business Exchange (IBX) data centre campus in Slough. Using a newly built SFTI access centre at Equinix’s LD4 site, customers of both companies will benefit from direct connectivity to financial markets and market participants, including NYSE Euronext’s European markets as well as a range of market data and post-trade services delivered over the SFTI backbone.
With this new installation, NYSE Technologies has grown the number of SFTI access centres within Equinix facilities to five – New York, Chicago, Singapore, Frankfurt, and now LD4 in London.
Created for the financial services community in 2002, the SFTI network has been significantly upgraded and expanded throughout Europe and Asia. SFTI is built to facilitate large quantities of electronic quotes, trades and market data traffic while ensuring reliable, ultra-low latency access to NYSE Euronext’s markets, other global trading venues and firms, including more than 1,300 market participants. This new access centre will continue to build on NYSE Technologies strategy to expand its network of Global Liquidity Centres in key locations around the world.
