Following it’s success in the 2004 awards, winning the award for ‘Best Technology to the Sell-Side’, Arcontech’s CityVision StarNet was ‘highly commended’ as ‘Networking Initiative of the Year’ at the third annual The Banker Technology Awards, presented last night in London at the Cafe Royal.
Arcontech’s award winning product, StarNet, is a global market data platform that provides reliable, real-time data publishing and gathering worldwide. It extends CityVision’s proven low-latency real-time middleware to wide area and global IP internetworks, enhancing globalised management, security and bandwidth efficiency and adding features for web server, browser and mobile phone integration as well as extremely efficient and robust real-time Excel support.
StarNet covers all the key bases of technology allowing ultimate user choice. Use of the product over the public Internet allows firms to complete projects – such as the setting up of a remote office – in a matter of days, without expensive development and consulting.
“We are delighted to follow last year’s win with this award in the networking category,” said Andrew Miller, managing director of Arcontech. “It further endorses StarNet’s progress as an enterprise market data platform and acknowledges the innovation of our developers, delivering cutting edge solutions to the financial community.”
