iRouter is a module within the Infocast Enterprise Solution which provides multi market order routing. iRouter is the component which receives the orders from Infocast Trader and routes them to the appropriate market interface. iRouter communicates with various market interfaces and transfers the order information between the trading system and the market interfaces.
The iRouter has currently been built with communications to the following market interfaces:- iBSS for the Hong Kong market, FIX SGX Access for the Singapore market and various interfaces for North American markets, for straight through order processing. All other markets can also be handled by using the iRouter/iDealer communications for semi manual order processing.
Multi Market - interfaces to multiple markets for truly diversified trading capability
Performance - supports large trading volumes on a 24 hour trading basis
Security - guaranteed message delivery and receipt
The main task of the FIX Gateway/Accessor is to provide a mapping between incoming/outgoing FIX messages and its corresponding Infocast Trader iChannel CORBA interface definitions
Working with the Infocast certified FIX engine the gateway reads the XML configuration file (outlining message mapping configuration)
The FIX Gateway/Accessor has been developed to be a plug and play module running within the context of the FIX Engine Core System. The component is invoked as "in-process" component within the FIX engine. VisiBroker 4.5 for Java is used as the run-time environment to facilitate ease of connectivity between the iChannel interface (which is CORBA BOA implementation) and the FIX engine.
