Access point

Access point to Deutsche Börse’s IT network

Access points connect customers’ front-end systems to the backbone system of Deutsche Börse’s IT network and beyond that to the exchange’s back-end systems where the data is processed. Thus, they act as access nodes for Deutsche Börse Group customers to the Group’s global IT network. Access points are always configured redundantly and installed in two separate locations for enhanced disaster tolerance.
