Altio and Caplin unite to deliver best-of-breed web-trading applications using AltioLive

LONDON – 21 March 2005, Caplin Systems Ltd., the real-time web company, and Integra SP with its Altio real-time integration software, today announced a strategic alliance to offer web-enabled direct market access in a highly functional front-end display. The integration of Caplin’s multi-award winning RTTP® (Real Time Text Protocol) platform with Integra’s AltioLive presentation environment combines best-of-breed web connectivity with state-of-the-art portal technology to provide the ultimate web delivery system.

Key features of Caplin’s technology include massive scalability and low latency; both fundamental to current online trading offerings. A single Caplin Liberator server is capable of delivering 4.5 million user updates per second, and can serve over 10,000 concurrent users. Caplin’s integration platform allows this technology to be interfaced quickly and easily to almost any existing market data or trading infrastructure.

Integra SP's AltioLive technology enables companies to build and deploy rich interactive applications that look, feel and perform like traditional desktop applications, yet run with the convenience of a web page in a browser. AltioLive is a highly configurable presentation application that enables users to rapidly develop and bespoke their display screen. This dramatically reduces the time to market of online trading and portal applications, while enhancing the user experience.

David Levett, Founder of Altio, says: "We are excited about our partnership with Caplin. The inherent security, reliability and efficiency of Caplin’s web platform -- the benchmark in streaming market data -- will enable us to provide the trading community with exceptional architecture and functionality for fast and accurate execution that exceeds any single vendor solution."

Paul Caplin, CEO, Caplin, adds: "We are moving web technology to the next level by coupling Altio’s highly functional display environment with Caplin’s platform. Our work with AltioLive provides an important new option to our customers, extending the range of environments available to deliver their information to their end-users. Altio’s unique development studio environment coupled with stunning production capabilities is beyond anything else available at the desktop."

Leading financial institutions such as Royal Bank of Scotland, JPMorgan, UBS and Nasdaq and over 100,000 high-end users worldwide rely on Caplin’s messaging technology. Altio’s financial services customers include Deutsche Bank, Swapstream, Deutsche Börse and GoldenSource Corporation.
