Services_How to connect

Connecting to our exchange

At Equiduct, we want to give our members access to our Best Execution services in a way that works for them, so we have four main connection options to choose from.

Your options include:

Centre cross-connect

Data centre cross-connect

Members who already have (or would like to order) space in the data centre can cross-connect to Equiduct directly.

Managed Lease Line

Managed leased line

Members who don’t have a space on the data centre can order a managed ethernet line to connect to Equiduct. With this option, the telco will be responsible to order the cross-connect from their demarcation point to Equiduct’s demarcation point.


Connection via an extranet provider

Members can connect using an extranet provider to create a high-speed link to our technology. We work with major extranet providers, such as Pico Global, Colt PrizmNet, BT Radianz, ICE Global Network, Verizon, IPC and Transact Network Services.



Members can also use an Internet VPN connection for development and testing only.

Alternatively, members can connect directly to Equiduct using industry-standard FIX 4.4

Let’s arrange a meeting to discuss options

Interested in how our innovative approach can deliver improved quantifiable results for you and your customers? Let’s arrange an informal chat or zoom call.
