Thomson Financial has appointed BT Radianz to provide network services for the new low latency Thomson DataFeed (TDF).
BT Radianz will provide connectivity for TDF, giving clients access to exchanges available in low latency, as well as Thomson Financial’s (TF) universe of real-time content. Thomson announced last week a global commercial agreement with Wombat Financial Software to embed their low latency technology with real-time.
Thomson believes that the combination of Thomson Financial and BT Radianz as the network and communications provider, along with the embedding of Wombat Financial Software low latency technology within TDF, gives Thomson Financial a product which addresses all spectrums of client application market data needs, from latency sensitivity through the broad proprietary content which Thomson will provide.
“Speed continues to be a critical factor as trading strategies become more sophisticated and the timeframe in which the trade is executed grows smaller,” says Chris Church, Executive Vice President, Global Salesand Industry Relations, BT Radianz. “With a BT Radianz low latency connection to Thomson Financial’s real-time content, firms gain access to the information they need to execute their strategies quickly and intelligently.”
“BT Radianz adds great value to the TDF low latency equation,” adds Matthew Burkley, President, Enterprise Solutions, Thomson Financial. “Its experience and reputation for delivering to clients exchange access around the globe through efficient and reliable connectivity, is second to none. Through TDF, we will be offering the only complete solution for real-time data feed clients – including latency, delivery and platform options. With the dynamics in the marketplace changing, our clients demand optimum performance. Our strategy reflects Thomson Financial’s understanding what our clients need to stay ahead of the game.”
