SFTI Low Latency Solutions

Low latency access to matching engines and market data has moved from a competitive differentiator to a necessity for many trading applications and firms. We provide a growing list of connection options designed specifically for optimized latency including:

  • SFTI Direct Market Access (DMA) uses low latency, point-to-point circuits and low latency carrier grade switching hardware to provide fast market data as well as order routing without the added latency of a traditional normalized feed. DMA connectivity can be provided in one of our 30 data and access centers or provisioned over our low latency redundant backbone for access at a self-managed facility.
  • SFTI Low Latency Network offers market participants faster transport of market data and order execution services between the NYSE U.S Liquidity Center (USLC) in Mahwah, NJ and the major New York metro area trading hubs of Carteret and Secaucus.
  • SFTI Wireless provides point-to-point connectivity for faster data transfer than any fiber route between ICE’s Mahwah Data Center and Carteret and Secaucus.
