Scottrade Builds Fat Pipe from Phoenix Data Center to St. Louis HQ

The online trading firm is working with Qwest to build long-distance MPLS connections to accelerate online trading, market research data delivery and overall operations performance.

Online investment firm Scottrade has decided to use high-bandwidth multiprotocol label switching data circuits to connect a new Phoenix-area data center to its St. Louis headquarters. The project is part of a five-year agreement with Qwest Communications to upgrade Scottrade's networks.

Scottrade recently selected Qwest's dedicated GeoMax and QWave data networking solutions to provide secure, high-bandwidth data circuits connecting the Phoenix-area data center to headquarters. More than 400 Scottrade branch offices nationwide use Qwest iQ Networking services based on MPLS technology for wide-area networking.

The new data connections will support Scottrade's online trading platforms, deliver market research data and maintain the performance of the company's operations.
