TSX Datalinx Joins SFTI(R) and Expands Distribution of Market Data



    NEW YORK AND TORONTO, June 21 /CNW/ - NYSE TransactTools(SM) and TSX
Group today announced that TSX Datalinx will expand the availability of market
data information for its customers across North America by becoming a market
center on the Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure(R) (SFTI(R)).
    SFTI is the NYSE TransactTools communications network dedicated to the
financial industry. It is designed to be resistant to man-made and natural
disasters, while speeding recovery after a crisis. This highly reliable,
resilient, and low latency network currently offers customers connections to
NYSE as well as other exchanges, market centers and content service providers
and also connects to over 800 market participants, including all of the
National Market System markets in the United States. As recently announced,
SFTI is now FIX-enabled, providing open, standards-based access for data and
trading. The OMS neutral FIX router enables customers to get to any
destination through a single FIX connection.
    Through SFTI B2B, customers will have access to TSX products such as
Toronto Level 1 & 2, TSX Venture Level 1 & 2, Index Service Level 1, and other
Canadian market data as well as TSX/CP Equities News with extremely low
latency.
    "In today's world, the demand for instantaneous, uninterrupted
information flow continues to grow significantly. It is critical for TSX to
deliver our market data at the lowest latency" said Eric Sinclair, Senior
Vice-President, TSX Datalinx. "SFTI is a proven high-end, low latency market
data provider that reaches all the key financial players in all the key
markets. By linking to SFTI, TSX is well positioned to meet those market
demands, expand our reach, and lower the cost of acquisition to the U.S.
market."
    SFTI is specifically designed to meet the financial industry's need for a
highly resilient data communications infrastructure while providing for low
latency communications between entities. There is no single point of failure.
All of SFTI's equipment, connections, power supplies and network links are
redundant and its architecture features independent, self-healing fiber-optic
rings. Even if a SFTI fiber pathway is compromised, financial data traffic
will continue to move uninterrupted along another pathway, improving the
industry's protection against possible threats.
    "We welcome TSX to the list of exchanges, market centers and content
services providers available via SFTI B2B, stated Sam Johnson, NYSE Euronext
Executive Vice President, and CEO of NYSE TransactTools. "They are the first
of many market centers where we plan to expand internationally".
