Russian market the Moscow Exchange is providing customers with connectivity to more than 20 points of presence (PoPs) across the globe including London, Chicago, New York, Frankfurt and Tokyo via infrastructure from the network subsidiary of Canadian exchange group TMX, TMX Atrium.
During 2012 and 2013, TMX Atrium established low-latency connectivity to Russian datacenter provider IXcellerate's M1 datacenter in Moscow (one of the locations where the Moscow Exchange houses its trading engines and market data platforms), but now the exchange has chosen TMX Atrium to provide worldwide connectivity to its customer base, says Emmanuel Carjat, managing director of TMX Atrium.
The move is in response to the "needs of global market players," and is designed to reduce operating costs, increase reach and provide high performance to customers, Moscow Exchange officials say.
"The ability to deliver low‐latency connectivity solutions globally along with great service performance in conjunction with TMX Atrium's reputation and ability to deliver rapidly was essential in our selection," added Andrey Shemetov, first deputy chief executive officer of Moscow Exchange in a statement.
