REMINDER: Cboe Europe: BXE and CXE new multicast PITCH feed infrastructure, effective Fri 27th September 2019

August 09, 2019 10:48:10

Dear Cboe Europe Equities Participants

As previously announced Cboe Europe Equities (Cboe) would like to highlight the following upcoming mandatory Multicast PITCH feed infrastructure changes, effective Friday 27th September 2019 and Monday 27th January 2020 :

* The new multicast PITCH feed infrastructure, made available from Friday 15th February 2019, will be reclassified as exclusively for data dissemination from the Cboe UK venue (BXE and CXE).

* As of Friday 27th September 2019, this new feed will become the only means of receiving Multicast PITCH data from the Cboe UK venue orderbooks, therefore all Participants must have migrated by then.

* As previously notified, the legacy multicast PITCH feeds will still be sunsetted on Friday 27th September 2019, so Participants are still required to complete their migration to the new multicast PITCH feed in advance of this date.

* In addition and with immediate effect, GRP ports previously classified with a "UK" jurisdiction on the new multicast PITCH feed infrastructure can be used for making gap requests to any matching unit.

* From Monday 27th January 2020, "EU" jurisdiction GRP ports will no longer be usable and will therefore be sunsetted.

* Detailed implementation guidance including network bandwidth management is provided in the Connectivity Manual - Appendix A.

* These changes will impact all current consumers of BXE and CXE Multicast PITCH and Participants will be required to subscribe to a new set of multicast feeds as well as connect to new GRP and SPIN ports.
