FAQ

1. What are netted and unnetted Market Data?

Netted and Unnetted Market Data differ basically by the dept of the orderbook (where unnetted Market Data EMDI/EOBI provide access to order book market dept, netted Market Data don’t).

2. What are the costs if we connect a new Member for netted or un-netted Data?

An overview of the connection fees is provided via: Fees for Eurex Exchange connections.

3. Can I connect only member firms of the DBG as a Service Provider?

Yes, Service Providers can only connect members of the Eurex.

4. What are the requirements to connect only affiliates*?

In this case two documents are required: 

  • Proofs of the affiliate relation of the two companies 
  • Affiliates form (contact onboarding team or you Key Account Manager)

*affiliates: are given when the term “control” is fulfilled. Either by the possession at least 50% of shares, or the power of direction by the management structure can be proved by contract or otherwise.

5. Why do we need to have redundant connection (same Bandwidth in one member LAN/Sub-installation) as a Service Provider?

In general Service Providers are providing connectivity to multiple Trading Participants. If only one line is in place, the risk is too high that in case of a technical or physical issue, multiple clients are cut off from their daily trading business.

To grant and maintain high standards of trading security and quality, a second line is in place as a backup connection for whatever reason. Service Provider need to ensure, that both lines are in the same member LAN/Subinstallation. There is an exemption to the redundancy requirement, and this is when only offering connectivity to affiliate firms.

6. Do you offer a special pricing scheme and special rules for a DR connection that would only be used in a DR scenario?

We do not offer a specific DR pricing scheme. All connections are usable for production and simulation (with the exception of software vendor connections) and are charged according to our pricing list regardless of whether they are used. There are no exceptions to the redundancy requirement. Our DR concept is as follows: link to DR manual 

7. Can I have one connection for Eurex and Xetra?

Yes, a physical crossconnect or leased line can  accommodate a Eurex and Xetra MIC. For this setup two contracts  need to signed independently (one for Eurex, one for Xetra). From a technical perspective, Xetra and Eurex use a separate network and separate channels but these can be on a same physical line with the exemption of 10 GB connections, in which case only one market (Xetra or Eurex) and only one service (market data or transaction services) is possible per physical 10 GB crossconnect.
