Thomson Selects BT Radianz for Low Latency Connectivity

News Wire

Thomson Financial has selected BT Radianz to provide low latency connectivity services for the Thomson Data Feed (TDF). The deal follows Thomson’s recent deal with Wombat Financial Software to embed that company’s low latency offering with TDF.

Matthew Burkley, president, enterprise solutions, Thomson Financial, says BT Radianz adds great value to the TDF low latency offering. “Through TDF, we will be offering the only complete solution for real-time data feed clients - including latency, delivery and platform options. With the dynamics in the marketplace changing, our clients demand optimum performance,” adds Burkley.

Chris Church, EVP, global sales and industry relations, BT Radianz, says speed continues to be a critical factor as trading strategies become more sophisticated and the timeframe in which the trade is executed grows smaller.

“With a BT Radianz low latency connection to Thomson Financial’s real-time content, firms gain access to the information they need to execute their strategies quickly and intelligently,” says Church.
