NSX Partners with Sidera Networks

NSX and Sidera announce Exchange in a Box, a new fiber-option-based network solution, allowing customers to connect with NSX in the New York Metro region at a reduced cost, in microseconds.

The National Stock Exchange (NSX) said it partnered with Sidera Networks (formerly RCN Metro), a leading provider of fiber optic-based network solutions, to create a new network solution called Exchange in a Box. This will provide connectivity to NSX via any of the major financial data centers in the New York Metro area at a reduced cost, enabling NSX customers to take advantage of microsecond connections.

Exchange in a Box utilizes a dedicated, layer-2 network running over an ultra-low latency wavelength platform, delivering efficient and seamless connectivity to NSX. Exchange in a Box network solution enables firms to quickly cross-connect with NSX, further reducing latency and cutting fees by as much as 75 percent for NSX's member firms, contends the release.

As technology plays a critical role in today's market structure, NSX is committed to developing innovative market efficiencies for its customers, the exchange stated in the release. Exchange in a Box represents a significant breakthrough in pricing, speed and connectivity and embodies its commitment to its customers, said NSX.
