New Wireless Connectivity from Carteret to Aurora!

Nasdaq strives to offer the most accessible and diverse connectivity options to market participants. With this in mind, we have added new wireless connectivity from Carteret, NJ to Aurora, IL utilizing Apsara Networks.

This new service provides dedicated bandwidth (1mb slices) between these two popular data centers, enabling clients to quickly and securely transport messages (orders, market data, systems messages).

Contact Doug Aragones at +1 212 231 5189 to hear more about the competitive latencies and high availability rates for this new route offered at a very competitive price.
