London, UNITED KINGDOM – 19 November 2012 – euNetworks Group Limited, a pan-European bandwidth infrastructure provider, today announced it has been named an Accredited Connectivity Partner (ACP) by London Stock Exchange Group. Today London Stock Exchange Group operates a broad range of international equity, bond and derivatives markets. This partnership is an integral part of its new connectivity service, Customer Managed Connectivity (CMC), which allows customers direct access to its markets through ACPs.
As an ACP, euNetworks offers access to trading and market data from London Stock Exchange Group’s core markets, including London’s Main Market and the London Stock Exchange-owned multilateral trading facility, Turquoise. The addition of ACPs such as euNetworks to the CMC, means this community of members, non-members and independent software vendors have more flexibility when ordering connectivity services and market data access.
“We are pleased to welcome euNetworks as an Accredited Connectivity Partner,” said Nigel Harold, Head of Business Development – Technology for London Stock Exchange Group. “We are confident that euNetworks’ infrastructure and experience will benefit our Customer Managed Connectivity service, meeting the needs of clients who require connections via reliable, low latency networks.”
