Fast Path

Seed CX offers a robust infrastructure for trading where latency is the primary concern. Participants can connect in a number of ways across geographically diverse set of data centers.


FIX & Binary APIs

Participants interested in low-latency trading can take advantage of Seed CX's FIX order entry and execution gateway and its proprietary binary multicast market data gateways. Participants need only connect to a single FIX gateway to route orders to any market offered by Seed CX or its subsidiaries.

Cross-connect

Seed CX’s primary trading engine and network point of presence (PoP) is located in the Equinix NY4 data center in Secaucus, NJ with an additional PoP and backup in the Equinix CH1 data center in Chicago, IL.

Participants can cross-connect at either NY4 or CH1 or both. For our latency-sensitive participants, we recommend cross-connecting at NY4. Please contact us if you would like to establish a cross-connect.

Extranet

Seed CX allows participants not currently hosted at any Equinix data center to connect directly via an extranet provider. A list of currently supported extranet providers can be found here. contact us if you would like to connect to us via an extranet provider not on the list.

Site-to-site-vpn

Participants may also connect directly to either of Seed CX’s PoPs (NY4 and/or CH1) over IPSec. contact us to get set up with site-to-site VPN access.
