Equinix to showcase at �The Forumâ
Equinix Inc. (Nasdaq: EQIX), the leading global provider of network-neutral datacentres and Internet exchange services, today announced it will exhibit at the inaugural principals-based regulation symposium �The Forum' at the London Inmarsat Conference Centre on 15 April 2008.
�The Forum' will bring together 200 practitioners to listen to industry leading figures and meet vendors at the accompanying exhibition. Neutral think-tank research on the key challenges will be presented to delegates who will have the opportunity to debate their priorities and participate in the creation of the implementation agenda for EU principles-based regulation (PBR) in the post-Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) environment, while discussing what it will �take to win' in 2012 - five years after the passage of MiFID.
Participating in collaboration with Copan Systems and Symantec, Equinix will showcase its network of global Equinix Financial eXchange communities at the event - which now include Frankfurt, London and Paris in Europe as well as Chicago and New York in the United States.
Equinix Financial eXchange enables next generation financial communities located in interconnected datacentres to interact over ultra low latency connections for the fastest performance on the market. Members interconnect with each other and multiple service providers in order to execute financial transactions with the minimum of latency.
In addition to proximity services that offer direct market access to major trading exchanges, Equinix Financial eXchange communities also provide organisations with the high levels of connectivity they need to access the growing number of multiple trading venues that firms need to connect with to be successful in today's post-MiFID environment.
Launched in 2006, the community now extends to more than 50 members including Yipes, Nico Trading, Merrill Lynch, Fortis and Citibank.
