The move enables Trading Solutions’ customers to converge their voice and electronic trading infrastructure onto a single extranet and connect to all major trading platforms globally.
Trading Solutions delivers unified communications services to more than 2,000 financial institutions and has over 40,000 turrets installed globally. Its dedicated trading extranet, TCSnet, facilitates trading between counterparties and enables financial services firms access to all of the world’s major financial hubs and liquidity pools. Trading Solutions connects to 47 markets from Interxion via TCSnet, offering its customers the best latencies and now includes both voice and electronic trading connectivity on a single network.
Sébastien Jaouen, Head of Global Sales-Trading Community Services at Business Services - Trading Solutions, commented, “Optimised connectivity to all financial instruments is increasingly important for the trading community, especially in global foreign exchange (FX).

The TCSnet extranet further strengthens our community of capital market participants that includes various liquidity venues, real-time market data feeds, buy-side and sell-side firms, and a diverse ecosystem of leading financial service providers. This reflects our position as a leading supplier of colocation and proximity hosting services to the capital markets industry.”
