As industry specialists we understand the need for accurate and precise time. Time infrastructure lives at the heart of the Options extranet, with high-precision oscillators and dedicated clock functionality built into every switch.
Accurate and precise time synchronization is an essential component of the financial markets ecosystem, promoting a fair trading environment and ensuring best execution across the board. We meet that need and all of our clients’ regulatory obligations (e.g. MiFID II & Reg NMS) through a diverse and fully resilient PTP infrastructure.
Our best-practice time design guarantees that every hosted server is directly connected to a PTP boundary clock, and from there connects back to the nearest GPS-source grandmaster time server in an unbroken chain of PTP clocks. For clients consuming Ultra Low Latency services, we additionally provide access to the raw PPS signal for maximum precision.
