Deutsche Boerse selects Juniper Networks to power trading and securities network

Juniper Networks announced that Deutsche Boerse Group has selected
Juniper Networks to power its new trading and market data connectivity service
for the Eurex derivatives and Xetra cash markets.

Juniper is working with Deutsche Boerse Group to enable 10 Gigabit
Ethernet connections for hyper-competitive trading through its co-location
centers in Germany.

The new Juniper Networks QFX3500 infrastructure brings ultra-low latency technology for improvements in
speed, scale and efficiency removing legacy barriers to improve trading agility
for Deutsche Boerse customers.

The current QFX3500 deployment also underlines Deutsche Boerse’s
alignment with Juniper’s 3-2-1 data center strategy and vision.

“With the continued increase in electronic trading pushing networks
to capacity, we needed a reliable, high-performance network for co-location
customers seeking new speed advantages in this competitive market,” said
Christian Leis, director and head of section networks, Deutsche Boerse.

“Juniper’s QFX3500 switches will immediately enable us to
significantly shorten the network runtime of co-location clients on the Eurex
derivatives and Xetra cash markets. In our business, speed is critical to
success,” Leis added.

Deutsche Boerse Group selected to deploy Juniper QFX3500 Switches after
an evaluation process that included extensive on-site verification testing. The
QFX3500 switches demonstrated record low latency for both multicast and unicast

In addition, the QFX3500 deployment made an impact with its Layer 2 and
Layer 3 feature richness, resiliency and flawless latency during testing,
making this product solution an ideal choice for Deutsche Boerse’s new
co-location services.

“To support the fast-paced action of international financial
markets, data centers and co-location centers need a network that is adaptable,
easy to operate, secure, and designed to best accommodate today’s performance
demands for traders at an exchange,” said Stefan Dyckerhoff, executive
vice president of the Platform Systems Division, Juniper Networks.
