Dow Jones has launched a multicast news product, delivered in a faster, lighter format throughout the New York trading community in Equinix, a data centre and interconnection company for the global financial markets.

Dow Jones multicast news feed will be available in the Equinix Secaucus Campus (NY2, NY4, NY5 and NY6) International Business Exchange (IBX) data centres.
With this new, headline-only product, Dow Jones is expanding the ways financial trading firms can consume news.
The Equinix interconnection service enables customers to connect seamlessly and directly to the Dow Jones multicast news feed alongside other data providers and similar services. This direct connection enables Dow Jones customers to receive information with a direct and scalable interconnection. 
“We are excited to introduce another premium offering for trading clients,” says Joe Cappitelli (pictured), general manager of news, alerts and data at Dow Jones. “With this new multicast product delivered across Equinix New York IBX data centres, we are making our high value content available to customers in the manner they want, and in the location where they have asked us to deliver it.”
“Dow Jones’s multicast feed is a strong complement to our growing financial ecosystem. As we see an increasing number of financial trading firms co-locating in the Secaucus campus, we are confident Dow Jones will accelerate its growth in this ever-changing market,” says John Knuff, vice president, financial services at Equinix.
Equinix’s New York IBX data centres in Secaucus, New Jersey, serve the world's largest financial companies with Equinix International Business Exchange facilities and premium interconnection services. 
In 2016, Dow Jones Newswires was first to report five potential deals valued above USD20 billion, also scooping the three largest technology deals in history in the past two years.
