Cboe to decommission legacy physical port connectivity to Cboe Options and CFE in Equinix NY4 data center

Maria Nikolova

Connectivity to Cboe Options and CFE will remain available from Equinix NY4 through latency equalized physical connections.

Effective January 31, 2020, Cboe will decommission legacy physical port connectivity to Cboe Options Exchange (Cboe Options) and Cboe Futures Exchange (CFE) in the Equinix NY4 data center, Secaucus, New Jersey. After the end of January 2020, connectivity to Cboe Options and CFE will be available from Equinix NY4 through latency equalized physical connections.

All firms which currently access the new C1 platform via legacy ports will be required to terminate their C1 access via legacy physical ports by January 31, 2020. Firms are advised to move to new latency equalized physical connections as soon as possible. The new C1 platform will allow lower latency access to both unicast order entry and multicast market data with a single physical connection through our latency equalized infrastructure.

Also, firms which currently access CFE via legacy physical ports in the Equinix NY4 datacenter will be required to terminate their physical ports by January 31, 2020 as well. Firms are encouraged to move to new latency equalized physical connections as soon as possible.

Let’s recall that, earlier this month, Cboe announced the successful migration of Cboe Options Exchange (C1) to its proprietary Bats technology. The C1 migration was the final step in Cboe’s multi-exchange, multi-year technology integration, which unites its options, futures, U.S. equities and European equities markets on one trading platform.

Enhancements achieved by the migration to the Bats technology include a more efficient and user-friendly trading experience with greater bandwidth, enhanced risk controls and improved complex order handling.
