London, 7th December 2009 - Atrium Network, provider of smarter connectivity for the financial community, announced today that ACTIV Financial, a global provider of low-latency market data solutions, is extending its connectivity to Atrium Network to consume and distribute CME Group real-time data across the platform. CME Group is the largest and most diverse derivatives marketplace that includes CME, the Chicago Board of Trade, NYMEX and COMEX.
ACTIV Financial initially connected to Atrium Network’s ‘Exchange Ring’ in April 2009. The company processes and includes the data provided by CME Group as part of its ACTIVFeed offering, delivering unparalleled performance and reliability. ACTIV’s client base will now have access to Atrium Network’s fast, robust and secure technology platform as a new connectivity path from CME Group to ACTIV’s client base and continued access to the growing set of data centers in The Americas and Europe.
Commenting on the connectivity, Emmanuel Pellé, Co-founder and Director of Sales and Marketing, Atrium Network, said, “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. 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.”
Frank Piasecki, President of ACTIV Financial, added, “Global market data solutions providers have multiple data sources to manage, and rely on fast, efficient and cost-effective technology to transport high-volume raw data with the lowest possible latency. Working with Atrium Network helps us to supply the connectivity that is vital for our clients seeking access to fast, quality data from existing and emerging venues.”
