Cantor Market Data, LLC, a subsidiary of Cantor Fitzgerald, L.P., and the exclusive source of real-time fixed-income pricing and data sourced from eSpeed markets for U.S. and European government securities, announced today that market professionals can now wirelessly access and view time-critical market data and analytics on Sprint’s BlackBerry 7520 handheld device.
As part of its benchmark U.S. Treasury real-time data service, Cantor plans on providing its wireless content as well as the BlackBerry 7520 device at no additional charge to both existing and new market data terminal subscribers.
Cantor Market Data’s wireless solution is available over the Nextel National Network and utilizes the same sophisticated technology as eSpeed, Inc., which launched the first wireless market data and trading solution for institutional trading of benchmark U.S. Treasury bond issues earlier this year. Cantor Market Data’s wireless solution provides market participants with one of the fastest ways to obtain real-time market data and analytics for the U.S. government bond markets when they need it, without being restricted to their desktops.
“We are delighted that our customers can now wirelessly access time-critical market data that they currently subscribe to,” said Bernie Weinstein, Cantor Fitzgerald’s Senior Managing Director for Cantor Market Data. “Cantor Market Data continues to be at the forefront of providing the highest quality, need-to-have information to our customers when and where they want it.”
Brent Wilkins, Managing Director of Cantor Fitzgerald Telecom Services, LLC added, “Joining with Sprint to offer a revolutionary product designed to aid market professionals away from the office, while providing a secure way to view market data, exemplifies how we continue to innovate value-added solutions for our customers. Cantor Market Data and Sprint have freed market participants to obtain timely data, without being restricted to their desktops.”
Sprint’s BlackBerry 7520 from Nextel integrates Nextel Nationwide Walkie-Talkie, speakerphone, Bluetooth technology and email capabilities for a true mobile office experience. All market data and analytics data provided through the Cantor Market Data wireless solution is secured through 128 bit end-to-end encryption.
