Exchange Services | SIX Repo – Our portfolio

Advantages at glance:

Together with their new CO:RE trading platform the SIX Repo introduced a new trading frontend with several new functionalities, like the new Evergreen Contract. As the Service Connector is no longer supported, every trading terminal and API based application requires a direct VPN access to the CO:RE backend, or a HW router with VPN capability. Traders need to timely adjust their IT infrastructure and connectivity setup, which typically requires the launch of an IT project.
The oraïse Exchange Services | SIX Repo deliver a tailor-made access to the new CO:RE platform, for an immediate use. A parallel test operation is made possible even during the changeover period and the access can be provided within a few days. This facilitates the migration considerably.
