Options expands managed colocation offering with addition of new European markets

RELATED TOPICS​

Options has added of SWX, Wiener Borse and Nasdaq’s OMX to the firm’s high performance connectivity and managed colocation platform, Velocity, which provides a single integrated low latency platform to all major liquidity centres globally.

This latest expansion follows a period of continued investment and development in the managed service provider’s European connectivity and complements the extensive list of exchange, dark pool and ECN venues currently available on the firm’s distinctive managed colocation offering.

Each venue and feed is linked via the Velocity platform, which leverages the fastest WAN links between these centers, allowing electronic trading firms to access equities and derivatives markets across Europe with agility and cost certainty. As part of this latest expansion, a number of key improvements have been made to existing European markets, including upgraded fiber paths to Basildon and Frankfurt.

Ken Barnes (pictured), Options SVP and head of the firm’s managed colocation business, says: “With coverage of the tier one markets already cemented, we have set our sights on changing the economics of accessing every market across Europe. Customers looking for high performance access to these markets from colocation centers across the continent can now do so while leveraging the high-touch customer service Options has made its hallmark. This latest upgrade underlines Options’ continued commitment to building the fastest low latency network on the market and we plan to exceed evolving customer demands in this regard.“
