“In terms of connectivity, the whole market is much more responsive now than ever before. Firms have the ability to spin up connections to a destination or a customer in a matter of hours, as opposed to days, weeks or months. Onboarding is faster and flexibility is key. You and I might trade today, but we may not want to trade in three weeks, and then in six weeks we may re-establish ourselves. Software-defined networking gives market participants that kind of flexibility.”
