Securities exchange strengthens services with Equinix deployment


Sydney-based Asia Pacific Stock Exchange (APX) has deployed its new trading platform in Equinix’s Sydney data centre, SY1.

APX says the move is designed to strengthen the financial services ecosystem in Australia.

“The deployment in Equinix’s Sydney data centre provides us access to a larger electronic trading community,” said David Lawrence, chief operating officer, Asia Pacific Stock Exchange (APX).

“We are now in close proximity to key service providers, network operators and customers, which is critical to our business. Equinix’s strong financial ecosystem, coupled with its track record as a reliable and secure data centre infrastructure provider, makes the company a perfect deployment option for us.”

Lawrence said that through the newly launched trading platform, APX offers mainland Chinese companies an alternative venue to list and trade in a more regulated and mature environment and leveraging Equinix’s high-performance and global trading ecosystem, APX provides businesses with opportunities to tap into a diversified range of domestic and international investors to fuel their Asia-Pacific growth.

David Wilkinson, Equinix senior director & Asia-Pacific lead, Global Enterprise & Financial Services, said APX’s deployment in SY1 will provide its customers with “premium services and enable it to take advantage of Equinix’s premium data centre facilities while having access to the wider financial services community”.

“We look forward to further supporting APX as it continues to grow its business and market reach around the world.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
