Esprow launches solution to facilitate testing of FIX connectivity for market participants

3 April 2018
Esprow, provider of testing and compliance automation solutions for the financial industry, has released a solution comprising 60 FIX simulators for global venues to enable market participants to independently test their FIX connectivity to trading venues

Esprow, a global provider of enterprise testing technology for the financial markets, has announced the launch of ETP GSP, its Global Simulators Pack, to enable market participants to test their FIX connectivity to trading venues independently from the testing environment provided by the venues themselves.

Market participants in all tiers and across roles, including banks, brokers, and vendors, constantly need access to testing environments provided by FIX trading venues. Oftentimes, access is only available at certain times of the day and in faraway time zones.

Esprow’s Enterprise Testing Platform (ETP) automates testing, simulation and certification of trading components across a range of financial messaging protocols, including FIX. The ETP GSP is a package of 60 pre-built FIX simulators for markets across North America, EMEA, and Asia Pacific. Each simulator supports several pre-built test scenarios, and can be modified and enhanced by users to add new scenarios.

Francesco Lo Conte, Managing Director at Esprow said: “ETP GSP is a valuable addition to our existing set of FIX testing tools. It provides users of our platform with a head start in implementing simulation of global FIX venues. They can pick and choose the markets they need and build functionality upon them. ETP GSP has been developed in cooperation with our clients and provides them with a 24/7 testing environment that was not previously available.”

Lo Conte added that the ETP technology also supports binary exchange protocols, and said that Esprow will soon be looking to provide the same pre-built simulators for binary trading venues.
