Bats Global Markets — the leading global operator of exchanges that you know for Making Markets Better for traders, issuers and investors — is also a premier network for marketplace connectivity.
Bats Connect is our cost-efficient, low latency Access Services solution that allows you to leverage our already established network in order to access major market centers for market data and order entry connectivity.
Bats Connect provides market participants access to major market centers for all of their market data and order entry needs by taking advantage of the Bats Exchanges' established networks. Our goal through Bats Connect is to allow customers to benefit from reliable connectivity to exchanges, dark pools and market data providers via already existing connectivity.
Significant Cost Savings
Firms are able to leverage quick access to major markets without the burdensome cost and management associated with maintaining multiple telecommunication connections to each market center. In addition, pricing for market data is based on the type of data connection, not bandwidth. This enables subscribers to accommodate growing bandwidth requirements for data without fear of increasing bandwidth-driven costs. In fact, connecting to markets individually through a telecommunications provider can be up to four times more expensive than utilizing Bats' access services.
Flexible Month-to-Month Subscriptions
Subscriptions are available on a month-to-month basis, providing additional flexibility over the longer-term contracts of most telecommunications providers. Billing is on a month-to-month basis with only a 30-day cancellation period required.
Proven Capacity and Reliability
Reliability and uptime are assured as customers use the same infrastructure that Bats uses in support of exchange trading. Bats’ 10 GB network has ample capacity to support current and anticipated market data rates.
Reliable Burst Protection
Bats Connect provides burst protection for order entry traffic where we monitor your requested bandwidth, but do not rate limit your connection. That means you are never in danger of oversubscribing.
Bats Connect is a consistent, high performing network offering competitive microsecond round-trip circuit latency to multiple markets. In addition, all data is provided as published by the original market center ensuring the quickest delivery possible.
