RTS to Roll Out High-Speed Access to Xetra

2 July 2009

RTS Realtime Systems Group announced today that it is one of the first major technology providers to globally roll out Deutsche Boerse’s new low latency, high-speed access interfaces, the Enhanced Transaction Solution and Enhanced Broadcast Solution, along with the new Xetra Release 10.0.

Deutsche Boerse offers traders two new dedicated high-speed interfaces that can be seamlessly deployed via RTS’ trading solutions. The Enhanced Transaction Solution is an asynchronous message-based interface (TCP connection) that further pushes the boundaries of low latency trading. The Enhanced Broadcast Solution (multicast connection) serves to transmit un-netted market data with significant order book depth as quickly as possible. The high-performance transmission mechanism reduces latency and provides faster access to market data.

Traders will rely on RTS to integrate Enhanced Broadcast Solution/Enhanced Transaction Solution into their existing trading infrastructure as these new connectivity options are not available via the exchange’s front-end. The new connectivity offering can lead to a reduction by at least 50 percent in transmission times for order data sent to Xetra and back to trading participants.

RTS’ proximity hosting solutions include Xetra and Eurex, allowing performance-driven traders to further profit from the combined offering, while keeping the cost under control. Said Christian Zahm, RTS Sales Director: “RTS is proud to be among the first trading solutions providers to offer this important global roll-out along with our proximity offering. With this enhanced connectivity offering, we are further strengthening our position as a leading technology provider for Xetra and for algorithmic trading solutions globally.”

“With the newly introduced high-speed interfaces, we will enable our members to tap into new performance dimensions,“ said Jens Hachmeister, Director, Head of Xetra Operations/Infrastructure Development at Deutsche Boerse AG. “Participants will considerably benefit from our technological expertise and the existing superior infrastructure for low latency trading.”
