The Euronext Universal Trading Platform (UTP) provides seamless, high performance trading markets in Amsterdam, Brussels, Lisbon, London and Paris.

OnixS launched the original OnixS directConnect: NYSE LIFFE XDP and CCG solutions during the phased decommissioning of the older LIFFE Connect API as it migrated to the new NYSE LIFFE UTP infrastructure. And in turn, with the ICE acquisition of NYSE/LIFFE, supported the migration path to the ICE platform, and the XDP and CCG implementations to Euronext.

OnixS supports the Euronext UTP trading platfom interfaces via the Secure Financial Transaction Infrastructure (SFTI) offering the following solutions:
