Routing to the Exchange
You can connect to OSE by establishing a proximity connection at the customer site, setting up a co-location environment, or setting up a combination of Integrated Network lines for Order connection and Market Premium Direct connection lines for the Price connection.
OSE provides Network Gateways which act as access points to the central system. The maximum number of users allowed per Designated Network Gateway set is 40, regardless of user type. OSE assigns a Login ID for each Dedicated Network Gateway set. TT only supports Dedicated Network Gateway deployment for Price connections. For Order connections, customers can use Dedicated or Shared Network Gateways. Dedicated Network Gateways are used exclusively by one Membership, while Shared Network Gateways are shared by one or more Member Firms. In the hostinfo.cfg file, the IP address of the specific Network Gateway should be entered under each Login ID.
Multiple TT OSE Gateways can connect to a Dedicated Network Gateway set as long as the Price and Order credentials of the same Membership are used. Additionally, both the Price and Order Server can connect to the same Dedicated Network Gateway set.
The following IDs are required to connect to OSE:
Trading Membership ID; Provided by OSE
Identifies users when they log in to the system; Provided by OSE; Must be configured in hostinfo.cfg file; Consists of the Participant Code and a five-digit number
Identifies the user that inputs the order; Set by users; 5 character code consisting of uppercase letters and/or numbers
