Deutsche BÃ¶rse Systems has focused on upgrading the links between major European and U.S. financial centres. The minimum capacity was quadrupled and is now set at 1.25 Gbit/s, serving the markets New York, Chicago, Paris, Amsterdam, Milan and Dublin. For London based customers the capacity has increased to 5 Gbit/s, this enables transmission of the entire content of an audio CD in just one second.
The new backbone network continues using elaborate design principles, such as exclusive redundant links, different telecommunication carriers and no single point of failures. The design also encompasses a completely diverse geographical routing, including optimization of submarine fibre optical network usage. The result is unsurpassed low latency, resiliency, and availability.
Only recently, Deutsche BÃ¶rse Systemsâ network has been able to cope with multiple sea cable fibre cuts to the Middle East and South East Asia, enabling Deutsche BÃ¶rse Group customers of these regions to continue their business without any impact.
