NYSE Euronext Building Its New Infrastructure With Juniper

June 25th, 2009 by · Leave a Comment

Juniper Networks (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings) will be an integral part of NYSE Euronext’s new platform, as announced by the two companies today.  The target will be an Ethernet network that scales to very high capacities while maintining ultra-low latency (i.e. sub-50ms round trip).  Ultimately, the new infrastructure will allow consolidation from 10 to just 4 datacenters while allowing them to handle billions of daily transactions.  I’m sure other exchanges are following their progress closely.

NYSE Euronext’s plans are quickly becoming a hotbed for next generation technological development, Telecommunications Online had a particularly nice article on it last week.    Last month, they announced they would work with Ciena to deploy native 100G wavelengths.  That presumably will be the transport infrastructure, and they have been assembling metro fiber from various providers so that will be the physical infrastructure.   Today we know that Juniper will be supplying the routing and switching infrastructure.   Hmm, all we need now is the details of their cloud computing effort.  There’s gotta be one in there somewhere…
