Deutsche Börse selects Juniper Networks as technology provider for 10 Gbit/S trading and market data connections

02/11/2011

Deutsche Börse has chosen Juniper Networks as the technology provider for the new 10 Gbit/s network for clients of Deutsche Börse Group's proximity service.

With effect from 12 December 2011, Deutsche Börse will be using Juniper Networks' powerful technology to significantly reduce the network run-time for Eurex derivatives market and Xetra cash market co-location clients and thus further increase liquidity on Eurex and Xetra. The International Securities Exchange also plans to use Juniper Networks to support customer co-location in its data centres.
 
“With the continued increase in electronic trading pushing networks to capacity, we needed a reliable, high-performance network for co-location customers seeking new speed advantages in this competitive market,” said Dr. Christian Leis, director and head of section Networks, Deutsche Boerse AG. “Juniper’s QFX3500 switches will immediately enable us to significantly shorten the network runtime of co-location clients on the Eurex derivatives and Xetra cash markets. In our business, speed is critical to success.”
 
“To support the fast-paced action of international financial markets, data centers and co-location centers need a network that is adaptable, easy to operate, secure, and designed to best accommodate today’s performance demands for traders at an exchange,” said Stefan Dyckerhoff, executive vice president of the Platform Systems Division, Juniper Networks. “Juniper’s data center switching architecture provides Deutsche Boerse Group with a versatile network that can handle the most demanding performance requirements.”
