Reliability of Essence in Key Emerging Market
Custom Connect, a global integrator of high-performance network solutions, today announced that a leading European financial trader selected Custom Connect to deliver connectivity to Moscow, Russia. It concerns a dedicated 1G Ethernet connection between a leading financial exchange in Spånga, Sweden and a large stock exchange in Russia. The connection guarantees reliable fiber connectivity with dedicated capacity as well as the flexibility for a future upgrade to 10G on demand.
Custom Connect offered a tailored solution that:
- Delivers end-to-end connectivity and was up and running within four weeks;
- Is optimized for Multilateral Trading Facilities (MTFs) and key datacenters;
- Is part of a contractual agreement that guarantees reliable fiber connectivity between two trading locations;
- Provides flexibility and scalability based on a 1G Ethernet port;
- Offers 24×7 support; and
- Included dedicated project management.
Russia is widely recognized as a top emerging economy. In addition to a growing domestic economy, Moscow’s geographic location (between Europe and Asia) has spurred governmental support and commitment to further develop the trading market. The solution Custom Connect delivered is connected to one of Russia’s largest stock exchanges where stocks, bonds, currencies, and derivatives of over 600 public companies are traded.
“We are excited about designing and delivering solutions for emerging markets such as Russia,” said Jan Willem Meijer, executive director at Custom Connect, “We strongly believe that carrier-neutrality will be pivotal in optimizing routes and capitalizing on opportunities, both for financial trading and for enterprise service providers in general.”
