Connectivity alternatives

As our clearing processes take place on the CCP system and the Eurex® system — FSE/Xetra® Clearing Members need connections to both systems.

In order to provide Members with greater flexibility, our Members can choose between several access alternatives to the Clearing House.

FSE/Xetra® Clearing Members may use the services of a Multi-Member Front-End Operator, leased lines, internet connections, or a combination of these. If you are using a leased line connection, we require a back-up connection in order to ensure consistent and robust access to the market. The back-up connection must have the same bandwidth as the principal line and can also be an internet connection.

Therefore, each FSE/Xetra® Clearing Member is obliged to connect to the Clearing systems (the CCP system and the Eurex® system) using at least one of the following alternatives:

  • Using the services of a Multi-Member Front-End Operator (former Multi-Member MISS-Provider)
  • Using a leased line combined with a back-up leased line
  • Using a leased line combined with a back-up Internet line
  • Using two separate Internet lines

If you already have existing connections to the Eurex derivatives trading environment, it is possible for you (if applicable) to use these connections for your FSE/Xetra® Clearing License.

In case you already have existing connections to the Clearing systems (the CCP system and the Eurex® system), you do not need additional connections for your FSE/Xetra® Clearing License.

Besides, Eurex Clearing offers an additional service providing access to its "Enhanced Risk Interface" through which Members can subscribe to risk-data (position and margin data) conveyed in real-time for derivatives and near real-time for other markets cleared.
