Production IP and Port Information for SPDS

August 27, 2012

FINRA has updated the Securitized Products Dissemination ServiceSM (SPDSSM) specifications to include the IP destination address, destination port number and source port number for the new data feed.

As previously announced, FINRA will launch the new data feed on November 5, 2012. Similar to the Bond Trade Dissemination Service (BTDS) and Agency Debt Trade Dissemination Service (ATDS) data feeds for Corporate and Agency Debt, SPDS will disseminate real-time last sale data and transactions of TRACE-eligible securities that are agency pass-through mortgage-back securities traded to be announced (TBA) via an IP Multicast channel.

FINRA will issue a technical notice next week with details concerning testing of SPDS in anticipation of the rollout to production.
