ActivFeed is our consolidated North American datafeed solution, providing real-time streaming North American prices and supporting data.
ACTIV delivers the feed as a set of IP multicast streams from our data centers in New York and Chicago. The data is received and processed at your site by our server components.
The multicast stream is heavily compressed to reduce client bandwidth costs. Reliability over WAN links is ensured by various means, including diverse routing, datagram-level arbitration and Forward Error Correction (FEC).
ActivFeed contains stock, option, future, future option, index, forex, fund and bond data from all significant North American sources, plus fundamental data, news and corporate events. The current exchange coverage list is available here.
We continuously monitor the health and performance of our data collection facilities, as well as client-sited ACTIV components.
The data in our real-time system is continuously managed by our dedicated DBA team.
Software written against our APIs works the same way whether the data source is ActivFeed Direct, ActivFeed or a hybrid of the two.
