CERTIFIED TIME DIRECTLY FROM THE SOURCE, COMPLIANT WITH THE MIFID II RTS 25 TIMING TRACEABILITY REQUIREMENT
NPLTime® is a trusted timestamp provided by NPL, the United Kingdom’s National Measurement Institute and is fully compliant with the MiFID II RTS 25 timing traceability requirement.
NPLTime® is now available on SFTI’s Atrium infrastructure via a simple cross-connect in one of our supported locations (ICE’s Basildon datacenter, plus the access centers of Interxion, Telehouse, and Equinix Slough) or via access circuits in the surrounding London Metro area. The service is unique in offering ICE clients a time signal that cannot be disrupted by outside interference, is certified to meet MiFID II requirements and can be implemented quickly over dedicated infrastructure.
NPLTime® completely eliminates reliance on GPS and offers a reliable service by removing susceptibility to jamming, spoofing, urban canyon effects and solar storms. ICE still adopts GPS as a complementary back-up source in their Basildon data centre to protect against the unlikely scenario of losing both NPL sources. This ensures the most reliable, accurate and secure time service possible to clients in this facility.
By using NPLTime® customers also get a guarantee of support and accuracy using the same primary time service as the ICE exchange.
