Co-Location (CoLo)

New Metro Millimeter Wave Offering!

Nasdaq strives to offer the most accessible and diverse connectivity options to market participants. With this in mind, we have added an additional wireless route between Secaucus (NY4) and Mahwah (ICE/NYSE).

This new route transports the BATS depth feeds (BZX, BYX) and the NYSE Integrated feed in raw format over an ultra-low latency wireless network in approximately half the time of the existing fiber-optic networks.

Contact Rich Mitterando at +1 212 401 8788 to hear more about the competitive latencies and high availability rates for this new offering.


Continued Improvement to Nasdaq Wireless Services

Other Recent enhancements include:

  • Enabled FPGA and software sourced TotalView ITCH feeds on the wireless offerings in Secaucus and Weehawken
  • Wireless NYSE Integrated feed delivered to Carteret
  • New Wireless Express offering from Carteret to Aurora utilizing Apsara Networks
  • Reduction in latency on current metro wireless networks
