Routing to the Exchange
SFE Gateways can connect to the Exchange host through ASX Net. ASX Net provides access to the ASX 24 futures trading platform.
ASX installs and manages all network connects and equipment within the Users premise for ASX Net.
Users must work with the exchange to arrange the initial installation of all ASX-provided equipment.
ASX 24 includes access to the ASX Grains market.
Some of the exchange-provided infrastructure to connect via ASX Net includes:
- ASX managed fibre connection
