NYSE Euronext and Juniper Networks Announce Plans for Ultra-Low Latency Network for Global Trading Data Centers

NYSE Euronext - the world’s largest and most liquid cash exchange, and Juniper Networks, Inc., the leader in high-performance networking, today announced the companies are working together to design a state-of-the-art, ultra-low latency core network for NYSE Euronext’s new consolidated global data centers.

Juniper achieved a critical milestone with this announcement; because it validates the company’s long-term strategy to develop a single data center fabric that will deliver a quantum jump in scale, performance and simplicity, while continuing to drive down the cost and complexity of managing data center information infrastructure. The capabilities that have enabled Juniper to secure NYSE are expected to resonate across financial exchanges and services groups worldwide – a key sector of the networking appliances growth in the Enterprise segment, and open doors to new opportunities.

Located in the greater New York and London metropolitan areas, NYSE Euronext’s two new data centers will be the primary operational infrastructure supporting several billion daily transactions and quotes across diverse asset classes and geographies, and will be instrumental in NYSE Euronext’s effort to consolidate the total number of its global data centers from ten to four. Expected to be operational in 2010, the new facilities will provide much greater network scale and efficiency, with plans to utilize Juniper’s Data Center Infrastructure Solutions and advanced data center fabric technology to support an unprecedented internal latency of 50 microseconds roundtrip.
