London, UK, 11 October 2022Colt Technology Services has today announced the launch of the Colt Market Data Monitoring System, providing Capital Market customers with greater transparency into their service and underlying digital infrastructure. The user-friendly portal – the latest addition to Colt’s industry-leading Capital Markets portfolio – offers real-time insight into service performance for market data feeds and usage,  enabling businesses to accelerate critical decision-making and response times to performance issues.

Designed by Colt’s software team to address the need for enhanced visibility into service performance, the Colt Market Data Monitoring System facilitates the monitoring of:

  • Bandwidth utilisation

Fully-integrated with Colt’s services and fully managed by Colt, the portal is quick and easy to set up, providing a comprehensive but light-touch IaaS offering – utilising Colt infrastructure – for market participants looking for an enhanced perspective into their service. Service monitoring occurs within the exchange colocation and through the network, for comprehensive visibility.

Our market data expertise combined with our trading infrastructure services, highly skilled development team and market-data normalisation software position us perfectly to deliver this transparency to our Capital Markets customers with the Colt Market Data Monitoring System.
