This is also SingTel’s first and largest WAN project from the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

DGCX and its participant members such as banks and broking houses all over the world can now enjoy instant data multicasting with SingTel’s IP-VPN service.

DGCX is able to send time-sensitive information regarding commodity prices to them simultaneously and encrypted for security through this network.

Mr Basab Banerjee, DGCX’s General Manager, System and Networking, said: “Electronic trading through a robust telecommunication network is very critical for connecting DGCX to its members located around the globe.
