Time services

Time servicesState-of-the-art network time synchronisation with the T7 trading infrastructure

PTP and NTP based network time synchronisation

Key benefits

  • State-of-the-art timekeeping and network architecture
  • Quick and easy connection
  • Precise reference time for mission-critical trading applications and market data feed handlers
  • Latency transparency

Deutsche Börse’s time service is built for continuous, precision time protocol (PTP) based network time synchronisation with Eurex Exchange’s T7 trading infrastructure. Our time service distributes a precise GPS (global positioning system) time signal with sub-microsecond accuracy.

Service details

  • Continuous synchronisation of customers’ system clocks with Deutsche Börse Group’s GPS time source
  • Utilisation of the leading technologies in time measurement
  • Dedicated 1 Gbps MMF (50 µm) cross-connects
  • Available in colocation only

High precision time synchronisation

Key benefits

  • Application measurements with an accuracy of less than a nanosecond
  • WR time distribution is also the basis for the High Precision Timestamps (HPT) Daily File Service.

The HPT Services uses the White Rabbit technology initially developed at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. 
Synchronisation with the T7 trading system is done with the highest available accuracy on a dedicated network. 
For the connection BiDi SFPs are needed because the SMF connection is bidirectional with different wavelengths.
