Routing to the Exchange

Network Configuration

CME Gateways provides access to exchange products on the CME Globex® platform by connecting to the following CME Globex interfaces:

  • CME iLink®: The Order Server connects via FIX protocol to the CME Globex order routing interface.
  • CME Market Data Platform (MDP): The Price Server subscribes to and receives prices from the MDP which is a dual-feed multicast market data dissemination system.

Hardware and Software Requirements-TT

TT recommends all Gateway software be installed on server class machines. For server class machine specifications, refer to the TT Trading Systems – Hardware and Software Requirements document located on the TT Customer Portal.

Hardware and Software Requirements-Exchange

CME Gateways communicate with the exchange via a number of different options that can be either customer or exchange managed. Different hardware and circuits will be utilized and provided, depending on which solution is chosen.
