InfoDyne Expands TPS+Plus to Support Toronto Stock Exchange’s™ Direct Feeds

Chicago - 28 November 2006

InfoDyne Corporation, a leading provider of ticker plant, direct market access, and middleware technology for ultra low latency algorithmic trading, today announced expansion of its popular TPS+Plus direct exchange feed ticker plant system to include the full range of Toronto Stock Exchange direct feeds.

InfoDyne has integrated the full range of TSX feeds, including Toronto Level 1 and Level 2 (TL1/TL2) and TSX Venture Level 1 and 2 (CL1/CL2). The solution will provide both top of the market and full depth order books for all of the exchange traded instruments, and adds to the more than 45 direct global exchange feeds, 5 consolidated feeds, and various sources of static, fundamental, and reference data now supported within the TPS+Plus system.

As with all direct feeds supported within TPS+Plus, subscriptions to TSX data can be interactive or broadcast. Interactive access is network and application friendly, efficiently delivering to applications only the TSX data to which they subscribed. For applications that require the full range of TSX data, TPS+Plus provides a normalized flow of broadcast data to any number of applications through a flat sub-millisecond distribution model. InfoDyne’s Latency Service assures customers are getting TSX data within configurable latency thresholds that are monitored and managed throughout the system and backed by InfoDyne’s Managed Service SLAs.

“As the marketplace continues to increase its demand for low latency direct data feeds, it is important to work with partners such as InfoDyne to broaden the availability and ease the integration of our market data for our customers,” said Eric Sinclair, Senior Vice President of TSX Datalinx®.

“We have seen a growing demand for TSX data from our customer base and have responded quickly to address the need”, said Guy Tagliavia, President and CEO of InfoDyne. We are working closely with the exchanges and extranet providers to provide customers a broad range of direct access options that can be measured, monitored, and ensured to be the lowest latency solutions available,” Tagliavia added.

In addition to equity data, TSX also carries News and FX content. TSX/CP Equities News combines the market data knowledge and experience of the TSX Group’s exchanges (Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX Venture Exchange) and the newsgathering expertise of The Canadian Press. The TSX/CP Equities News provides a unique window on the Canadian equity market that is crucial for financial professionals interested in news from Canadian companies. The Canadian Press bilingual news service, staffed with 250 journalists, has the resources to focus on the more than 3,000 listed issuers on the TSX Group's exchanges. The news service also provides alerts, economic and fiscal coverage and related political and regulatory news from Ottawa and all provincial capitals.
Foreign Exchange information is sourced from leading global financial institutions on a 24x5 basis incorporating spot foreign exchange rates from multiple contributors. Designed for the equity markets professional, the service delivers real time content to assist in the cross-border valuation of equity securities.

InfoDyne implements new exchange feeds within its TPS+Plus system within weeks given the technology is based on more than 15 years of design methodology and refinement. TPS+Plus, now in its 6th generation release, offers the most comprehensive suite of direct and consolidated data sources available, and includes a full range of client site integration options. “TPS+Plus enables our customers to chose the market data infrastructure that best meets their performance and distribution needs without the worry of custom development, and we are excited to offer TSX data as part of the offering”, sited Bob Barton, VP of Sales at InfoDyne.
