ACTIV Financial, a low-latency market data distributor, is to use connectivity provider Atrium Network’s technology platform to consume and distribute data from US derivatives exchange operator CME Group.
Exchanges run by CME Group include the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Chicago Board of Trade, NYMEX and COMEX.
ACTIV clients will be able to use Atrium Network’s technology platform as a new path for receiving data from the CME Group’s trading venues, as well as for continued access to Atrium’s data centres in North America and Europe.
“Our platform is designed to easily accommodate service expansions to include the largest venues in the trading arena. Exposure to a wide spread of multiple asset classes, combined with low latency is key for clients today,” said Emmanuel Pellé, co-founder and director of sales and marketing, Atrium Network, in a statement. “We offer clients straightforward, resilient access to help them simplify their connectivity requirements and to ensure they receive secure, reliable and ultra-high-speed access to the financial community.”
ACTIV Financial connected to Exchange Ring, Atrium’s ultra-low-latency trading venue network for the US and Europe, in April 2009. The firm currently offers CME Group data via ACTIVFeed, its fully-managed direct-feed global data feed solution.
