SuperDerivatives has now added connectivity using the TMX Atrium platform in both London and New Jersey for production purposes.

BrightRoll and Equinix Introduce Video Advertising’s Fastest Real-time Bidding Solution

Equinix and BrightRoll, the largest independent video advertising platform, today announced they are bringing to market VideoRTB+, an ultra-low latency video advertising real-time bidding (RTB) solution, which is only available inside Equinix data centers.

VideoRTB+ will offer the fastest real-time bidding in the video advertising marketplace. Low latency is critical in programmatic video ad buying, where advertisers and their third-party buyers must exchange and analyze ad information with the RTB exchange and third-party marketing data providers in order to finalize bids within a 100 millisecond bid window.

This process determines which video advertisement plays for a web audience member prior to their requested video or webpage. The VideoRTB+ solution increases the ability of real-time bidders to successfully review, analyze and bid on video ad inventory, which translates into better performance for advertisers and increased revenue for companies in the video advertising ecosystem.

“BrightRoll is building the technology infrastructure to address the rapidly growing video ad economy, which includes a shift toward programmatic buying and RTB,” says Brightroll SVP of Engineering Christopher Amen-Kroeger. “Like the high-frequency financial trading markets, speed is an essential factor in successful programmatic buying. With the launch of VideoRTB+, we offer our customers the opportunity to boost their competitive edge with a direct connection to our platform inside Equinix data centers.”

DS EN ADIXEC 1F1 1 BrightRoll and Equinix Introduce Video Advertising’s Fastest Real time Bidding Solution


VideoRTB+ is available exclusively to buyers on BRX and is available only inside Equinix data centers. The initial BrightRoll deployment is available in Equinix’s Silicon Valley and Ashburn data centers, with plans for international expansion into Asia and Europe across Platform Equinix. Equinix and BrightRoll will work together to promote and build Equinix’s Ad-IX ecosystem, which connects ad exchanges with ad markets for efficient and timely delivery of digital advertising.

Equinix Cloud & Content General Manager Chris Sharp says, “The video advertising market is primed for dramatic growth in the coming years, and Equinix’s Ad-IX ecosystem helps the key players in real-time bidding industry locate their infrastructure in close proximity to achieve more effective bids on the right type of inventory. Together with BrightRoll, our goal is to optimize online ad transactions by centralizing this community in key data hubs around the world.”

Custom Connect becomes NYSE Euronext Application Services Provisider

Custom Connect becomes NYSE Euronext Application Services Provisider

Published on   Apr 17, 2013

Custom Connect, the provider of advanced carrier neutral connectivity services, announced that it has become a NYSE Euronext Application Services Provisider (ASP). As an NYSE Euronext ASP, Custom Connect is allowed to connect its customers to NYSE Euronext and to provide the infrastructure services that are needed for trading. Custom Connect enables its customers to leverage high-speed connectivity and to dramatically reduce the infrastructure costs that are related to trading on NYSE Euronext. The well-known Dutch trading company Webb Traders was the first to see the potential of Custom Connect’s solution and became the launching customer.

NYSE Euronext defines an “ASP Service” as a hosted service offering that provides an interface to the Trading Platform to enable Securities and/or Derivatives to be traded on the Trading Platform. It does not include any service that is associated with providing Market Data in any form. Custom Connect’s offering consists of this interfacing, hosting the customer’s devices in the NYSE Basildon Data Center in the UK, and the connection between the data center and the customer’s premises or any global location including 24×7 operating services and support.

Olav van Doorn: “Our one-stop-shop service offers a combination of interfacing, connectivity and colocation,” says Olav van Doorn, Executive Director, Custom Connect. “Customers trade on NYSE Euronext via their own membership; Custom Connect assists with the implementation and the operational support of the infrastructure on a shared basis. We provide our clients with low-latency and high-available connectivity. Our shared hosting services at the Basildon Data Center are less expensive, compared to having your own server racks there. Customers have only two partners to deal with: NYSE Euronext and Custom Connect. Doing business on NYSE Euronext has become very easy and very cost effective now.”

Thijs Booij, Managing director of Webb Traders about Custom Connect’s new service: “We are very enthusiastic. For a fraction of the costs in relation to setting up the connectivity and running the infrastructure, we now are able to do the most advanced trading on NYSE Euronext. The latency of our connections is unprecedented and the quality of Custom Connect’s business services is of absolute world class. Our new possibilities immediately had a positive impact on our bottom line.”
