Connectivity Options

To connect to the CO:RE Trading Platform production and member test environments, one of the following is necessary:

Internet connectivity is a simple, non-redundant and cost-effective solution. It is the ideal solution for participants with low trading volumes.

2) Managed IP service – outsourcing network maintenance to service providers

The Managed IP service option is designed for participants wishing to outsource the maintenance of their network to a specialist service provider.

We support Managed IP / leased lines from BT-Radianz, Deutsche Börse AG and SIA S.p.A. Additionally, we also support Secure Swiss Finance Network (SSFN) based on SCION technology (Scalability, Control, and Isolation On Next-Generation Networks) connections from various providers.

The related lines must be ordered directly from the provider by the participant. Third parties are fully responsible for their technical infrastructure.
