NYSE Euronext invites ADVA to its low-latency party

ADVA Optical Networking (XETRA: ADV.DE) continues to make a name for itself in the financial-services community as the NYSE Euronext has selected the vendor's FSP 3000 platform for its Secure Financial Trading Infrastructure (SFTI) access center.

The Germany-based vendor joins Ciena (Nasdaq: CIEN), which was tapped by Euronext in 2009 to build a private 100G optical network in New York and London metropolitan areas.

This deployment with Euronext is important for ADVA in that it gives it another major U.S.-based financial account reference. SFTI, a dedicated network that NYSE Euronext built and operates itself, is one of the largest backbones for the securities markets and financial trading community.

What's more, the deployment could get the attention of other service providers that can now offer their services within NYSE Technologies' liquidity center. In May, NYSE announced that it would open the center to third-party service providers such as Cross River Fiber.
