RETN to provide remote access to Moscow Exchange

Moscow, Russian Federation, 30th of August – International network service provider RETN became certified for providing remote access to Moscow Exchange (MOEX).

The established partnership allows RETN to offer uninterrupted and secure access to all trading systems of Moscow Exchange (ASTS/SPECTRA/PLAZA). RETN sets up connections based on its cross-border network’s infrastructure, 38,000 km in length. RETN’s customers can now access MOEX remotely via either ConnectME scheme, in the colocation zone or, since short, via universal DMA scheme.

“We would like to use the opportunity to emphasise the importance of the partnership for our existing and potential customers, such as trading, investment companies, banks and various financial organisations operating in Russia and internationally. The status of a certified provider enables us to expand the scope of our services. We have already successfully connected the first international customer to MOEX, and we hope to multiply this success by developing our cooperation and improving connectivity possibilities,” says Anton Pilikin, commercial director at JSC” RetnNet “, of RETN’s entity based in Moscow.

RETN’s CTO Ilya Nikishin adds: “Connecting customers via the universal DMA scheme, RETN provides access to MOEX’s virtual private network “MICEX IP VPN” on the highly resilient Layer 3 network. At the moment, RETN has two connectivity points to access MOEX: data centres M1 and DataSpace in Moscow. We also provide connectivity services in the MOEX colocation zone. Which means all members of the MOEX virtual platform are enabled to directly access the high-speed RETN network and the services provided across the entire RETN network stretching from the USA to Asia.”

Sergey Shelyagin, Managing Director for Information Development and Technological Services at Moscow Exchange, comments: “MOEX works hard to attract new providers to offer remote access to the Russian market. RETN offers connectivity services globally, which will facilitate the inflow of additional international liquidity to the MOEX markets.”
