Leading provider of managed services for the capital markets, CFN Services, recently announced the availability of NASDAQ eSpeed Market Data, the U.S. Treasury securities electronic trading platform on its ultra–low latency Alpha Platform™.
Spanning throughout distribution points in North and South America, Europe and Asia, this availability now enables trading firms to access the NASDAQ eSpeed market feeds in native exchange format along with other select feeds such as equities, futures and Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) – further accelerating them across CFN’s Alpha Platform via its UltraFast Market Data microwave distribution. This implementation of fixed income data joins CFN’s growing roster of equities, futures and options data, all available in full-depth, native formats.
Mark Casey, President and CEO of CFN Services stated, “The addition of eSpeed Market Data further enhances the Alpha Platform as a single source for the highest performance trading infrastructure and data available globally. Enabling a broad range of full-depth native feeds simplifies integration for market participants, while maintaining the lowest latency available in an outsourced solution.”
Delivering native format feeds, CFN Services’ UltraFast Market Data leverages the combined performance and availability of both fiber and microwave distribution networks, offering market participants the flexibility to normalize data with their own proprietary feed handlers and ticker plant technology or via off-the-shelf solutions integrated on the Alpha Platform through CFN’s Alpha Alliance partners.
