Engineered to support high-performance basket trading
Historically, FIX networks have been engineered to support the routing of orders generated by slower performing Order Management Systems (OMS) and thus are limited in terms of speed and throughput.
The global InfoReach FIX Network was designed to handle extremely high volumes of orders, amends and executions (including multiple baskets of thousands of names each) generated algorithmically by the InfoReach TMS and other robust trading platforms. If you're serious about portfolio trading, you deserve IFN.
Multi-hub model provides high-throughput connectivity at a low cost
The InfoReach FIX Network (IFN) supplies global, high-performance, multi-asset, multi-broker FIX connectivity and order routing at a cost-efficient price. All made possible by our unique approach to FIX Engine architecture and network design.
Distinctive multi-hub model eliminates bottlenecks
Typical hub-and-spoke networks supply FIX connectivity through a single point (the hub) to multiple trading participants (the spokes). But because ALL messaging from ALL counterparties must first be received and parsed by the same shared hub before being routed to the appropriate brokers/ destinations, bottlenecks in message queue and throughput are common.
IFN provides multiple connections (hubs) via individual broker gateways. Trading participants can send orders and receive executions concurrently, thus ensuring greater throughput and faster market access.
Reliable and redundant infrastructure reduces risk
By their very nature, single hub-and-spoke networks expose the entire community to a single point of failure. If the hub fails, then all connectivity to trading counterparties is lost.
IFN's high-availability system architecture, multiple gateways/hubs and redundant network infrastructure ensure reliability for your trading operations. And you enjoy exceptional functionality and performance.
Instantly adjusts to changes in parameters
While other routing networks have to manually adjust their configuration to handle custom parameters (such as a new algorithm), IFN is built to automatically and instantly pass through any changes in user-defined fields. This spares network participants significant time and costs.
A convenient solution that spares your firm the hassles of network administration
The InfoReach FIX Network offers complete FIX administration, connectivity management and 24/7 global support. All provided by an experienced FIX networking team who relieves your organization of the technical workload and burden of responsibility.
As an added benefit, IFN continually monitors network connectivity and notifies traders in real time whenever a trading destination in the network becomes unavailable-regardless of order status. Traders immediately can redirect orders to an available broker/destination.
Fast, easy and cost-effective global order routing
Ideal for firms who want the benefits of a high-performance FIX messaging infrastructure and with broker-neutral connectivity at an affordable price, the InfoReach FIX Network is available for immediate deployment.
IFN boasts an order-routing network of more than 140 brokers, ECNs and other sources of global liquidity for equities, options and futures trading, and 15 of the world's largest FX dealers and banks. So you can quickly enter the global FIX trading community with a minimum of time and cost.
