TMX Atrium Upgrades North American Infrastructure

09/07/2013

TMX Atrium, provider of smarter infrastructure solutions for the financial community, today announced the completion of a significant upgrade to its North American infrastructure. The upgrade has been implemented to offer TMX Atrium community members flexible and fully scalable access to multiple markets across North America and into Eastern and Western Europe.

As venue migrations continue, TMX Atrium’s investment in its platform offers a competitive advantage through the upgrade of its points of presence (PoPs) network across Chicago, New Jersey, New York and Toronto. This network ensures TMX Atrium delivers superior access to the major liquidity centres in each region.

TMX Atrium’s recently upgraded 10-gigabits-per-second (Gbps) platform offers clients the flexibility to support growing market data volumes across North America and offers back-up paths in response to the regulatory drive for diverse connectivity into and out of key liquidity centres. TMX Atrium supports access to more than 30 trading venues.

Emmanuel Carjat, Managing Director, TMX Atrium, commented, “Our client base is located in multiple locations, so it’s critical that we provide access to all markets and from all locations on an industry leading platform. We need to support venue migrations across North America and Europe and at the same time offer optimum trading choice.”

Carjat continued, “Our financial services-oriented platform with fully resilient back-up ensures that we can help firms mitigate against the risk of infrastructure downtime. Our ability to offer 10 Gbps connectivity right across our network delivers significant advantages for the international trading community who may be accessing TMX Atrium from Chicago, Moscow or locations in between.”
