SIX Swiss Exchange has successfully completed the upgrade of its trading
platform. The upgrade was developed in collaboration with NASDAQ OMX.
At the same time, SIX Swiss Exchange is launching a co-location service
for the new platform in association with Equinix. Starting today, SIX Swiss
Exchange offers participants the most modern trading technology in the
world.

SIX Swiss Exchange has successfully completed the upgrade of its SWXess
trading platform with the X-stream INET technology developed by NASDAQ
OMX. SIX Swiss Exchange is the first exchange globally to combine the triedand-
tested capabilities of the X-stream platform with INET trading technology –
the world's fastest.

On April 23rd SIX Swiss Exchange launched equity trading using the very latest
technology. With this step, SIX Swiss Exchange is investing in the future and in
the international growth of Switzerland as a highly successful trading center.
Together with the new co-location service, the system upgrade means that much
higher order volumes (capacity) can be matched and executed in a significantly
shorter time (latency).



This is supported by the efficient and standardised trading protocols, which are also in use at various trading venues. Tests under trading conditions have shown that average round-trip latency is just 37 microseconds.

According to a Swiss Exchange release, each and every participant benefits from this low latency. Participants can put their investment decisions into effect and adjust and reduce their investment risk even faster. Rapid trading, and market data that is distributed with equally low latency, are also key to participants investing or market-making in ETFs, ETPs or structured products. The latest enhancements allow price movements in
underlyings to be identified more quickly, and the corresponding investment and
market-making decisions to be executed more effectively, says the exchange.
