Dow Jones has launched a next-generation multicast news product, delivered in a faster, lighter format throughout the New York trading community in Equinix, the premier data center and interconnection company for the global financial markets. Dow Jones's multicast news feed will be available in the Equinix Secaucus Campus (NY2, NY4, NY5 and NY6) International Business Exchange (IBX®) data centers.
