CME LNet is a customer-managed solution offering 40mb redundant fiber
connections to the CME Globex platform via specified collocation facilities.
LNet is expected to decrease network latency times for order entry by 10 to 15
milliseconds compared to a standard CME connection through a 20 Mbit/s line
using external line providers. With this setup in the Equinix datacenter, RTS now
provides customers the fastest possible Direct Market Access (DMA) to the CME.
âWith this new high speed fiber connection, the level of performance required for
algorithmic trading engines and spread traders is the fastest in the industryâ,
says Steffen Gemuenden, co CEO of RTS.
In addition to electronic trading solutions, RTS offers a 24/7 fully managed
datacenter service which includes high-speed connectivity to multiple exchanges,
as well as state-of-the-art hardware and application hosting & housing services.
