Process Overview

After submitting all the  required forms for participating in SIX Repo markets, the participant receives individual online log-on details for the participant section on the SIX Repo website.
 
Here they can download documents, software, VPN certificates and router configurations as well as all other relevant information for the installation and configuration of the CO:RE Trading Platform.

Connectivity Options

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

1) Internet connectivity (at least 1mb) – simple and cost-effective

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 swisscom/Verizon Business, BT-Radianz, Deutsche Börse AG and SIA S.p.A.. The related lines must be ordered directly from the provider by the participant.

Third parties are fully responsible for their  technical infrastructure.

3) Web-based access – outsourcing to service provider

The service provider oraïse GmbH offers access to the CO:RE Trading Platform via a web browser and login token. With this VPN infrastructure solution, software installations and release upgrades are not required.
