Trade The News launches NewsStation version 5.3

New York City - 15 February 2007

Trade The News announces availability of NewsStation version 5.3. The new version has been in development since 2005, representing a sustained set of continual improvements for TTN clients in the years ahead. Some notable enhancements include:

- Improved audio latency. An almost zero delay to our North-American based clients. A typical listener will now experience audio latency of only 40ms compared to at least 480ms in prior software versions.
- The invention of “Radio Tones” Subscribers will hear 3 sets of tones: “Entry Tones” which play upon the beginning of every audio transmission, “Beacon Tones” that play after 10 minutes of silence indicating channel is still broadcasting, and “Skip Tones” which play when ANY voice packet is lost during an audio transmission.
- Richer FM quality sound. Data rates have increased to 29Kbit from 24Kbit/sec
- Satellite compatibility. Clients around the world who have a satellite internet connection can now receive TTN’s audio feeds reliably.
- Dynamic Congestion Technology. Unique to Trade The News’ VoIP technology, NewsStation 5.3 intelligently and constantly adjusts the user’s audio buffer based on individual network performance to provide the most real-time and intelligible audio experience.
- Further redundancy. In accordance with TTN’s “no downtime is acceptable” approach, version 5.3 now will automatically reconnect to another server in TTN’s datacenters if the software senses a text or audio server has failed without user intervention.
- Network Expansion. Trade The News’ global IP network, now the 230th largest IP network in the world, has expanded its private peering to 15 additional global IP networks.

Trade The News’ improved audio latency involved hundreds of man-hours reengineering the intricate wire-center and represents a great step forward for clients. TTN believes the invention of “Radio Tones” takes the concept of “Hear-it” “See-it” to a new level, especially for Forex traders who, at times, may experience extended periods of silence. Dynamic Congestion technology, which is unique to TTN’s VoIP implementation, allows users on more volatile and often congested WiFi resort and hotel networks to enjoy a better experience as they travel.

The expansion of network private peers in our datacenters has prepared TTN to serve clients through the next disruptive “event;” taking a lesson from the overloading of the public internet on 9/11.
