Wombat's New Feed Handler for Telekurs MDFstream Carries Direct-feeds and Reference Data
Wombat Financial Software Inc. is shipping a new feed handler for MDFstream, Telekurs' real-time broadcast data feed. In addition to carrying direct-feeds from sources such as OPRA, CTA, Nasdaq and the ECNs, the new feed handler will deliver securities master or reference data from a variety of exchanges to support the low-latency, direct real-time data feeds.
Wombat says the new MDFstream feed handler includes the same configuration and administrative controls that Wombat currently offers with its Universal Feed Handler Suite. The feed handler allows customers to push either real-time, tick-level data or security-master onto the majority of commonly deployed data distribution platforms, including Wombat's own MAMA and Wombat Transport platforms.
Telekurs' MDFstream uses a queuing design that enables it to process very large quantities of data, says the vendor. Telekurs directly sources its data from over 200 global exchanges and 400 third-party contributors, and it consolidates the data into a normalized, real-time feed.
Telekurs says this development allows customers to harness Wombat's market data infrastructure for low-latency feeds such as OPRA and for high-volume derivatives feeds in particular, while relying on a traditional consolidator like Telekurs for everything else.
