New Trading Floor for FTC

CAS began this project with a review of existing trading/back office services. From this business orientated information, CAS, together with its strategic networking partners – DP Systems, designed and implemented a new trading floor. The project involved the entire trading environment from an empty, converted listed property, including the specific accommodation issues created by such a building. The facilities included:

  • 50 position Hitachi voice trading and back office system, providing improved communications
  • External and internal infrastructure for NT based local area network
  • Network services connectivity for the voice/data systems
  • External service delivery and installation for Reuters and Bloomberg feeds with satellite backup
  • Supply management for all new and relocated desktop hardware, servers and infrastructure
  • New structured cabling scheme for the trading floor and communications rooms
  • Management of the furniture supply and cabling connections within the desk and at the desktop
  • Power and office infrastructure design and project management

CAS proved its capabilities to organise and implement all aspects of trading floor service delivery.
