Bursa Trade connectivity via MMTP

(FOR BROKERS WHO EITHER WISH TO DEVELOP THEIR OWN SOLUTION OR PURCHASE
ONE FROM AN ISV)

Hardware/Software Requirements

The local brokerage houses that wish to connect to Bursa Trade DMA must have a CAP
(Certified Access Point). Only local brokers (PO/TP) are able to connect to Bursa
Trade.

Foreign brokerage houses that wish to connect to the Malaysian market would need to
connect their MMTP interface to one of our local brokerage houses.

The Exchange will allow a direct connection via FIX 4.4/FAST protocol should the
situation warrant it. This would be a result of a large number of brokers opting to
connect to Bursa Trade without a CAP. However, this will only be available in 2008.

The CAP must possess the following configuration:

CAP Server BursaTrade Server
Pentium IV 3.4GHz 1M Cache 1GB/4GB 80GB SATA
Integrated ATI RAGE XL Video Controller with 8-MB SDRAM Video memory
Integrated SATA RAID 0/1 Hard Disk Controller
Additional 80Gb SATA 1.5Gb, 7,200ROM Hard Drive (1")
1.44 MB FDD Option
CD ROM Drive Option
Embedded NC7782 Dual Port Gigabit NIC
Integrated iLO Remote Management
350 Watt PFC Power Supply
1U Rack
3-1-1 (3 years on parts, 1 year on labour,1 year on site next business day response
(on-site service is limited to 50km radius away from PJ Service Centre)
Anti-virus software
Dongle
Dongle-USB Versa from MARX Software Security
Operating System (OS) Software
Windows Server 2003, Web Edition

The cost of a CAP (hardware + software) configured to access to Bursa Trade is
estimated to be around RM13,000.
The cost of a dongle alone configured to access to Bursa Trade is estimated to be
around RM 2,100.

The diagram below illustrates access to Bursa Trade using MMTP protocol. This is for
the first phase of DMA in 4Q of 2007, as the Bursa Trade Derivatives DMA platform will
be accessible only in MMTP and via a CAP.
From the first half of 2008, the Bursa Trade DMA platform will be accessible in MMTP
or FIX 4.4 format, via a CAP (see diagram above) or, if a large number of brokers are
in favour of it - without a CAP (see diagram below).

Network

The local brokerage house has to use a leased line to gain access to Bursa Trade’s
production environment.
To access the Bursa Trade DMA testing platform, the brokerage house will have to use
an ISDN line and to set up the ISDN router.
Please note that a brokerage house which already has a CAP to access to the
production platform cannot use the same CAP to access to the testing platform.
The ISDN router is recommended to have the following configuration:

1. CISCO 1721, or Modular Router w/1xFE, 2 WAN slots, 16 FL/64 DR, or

2. CAB-ACU Power Cord UK
1- Port ISDN WAN Interface Card(dial and leased line)
3. WIC-1B-S/T **Note: If 1800 series router is used, the product code of
this module is ‘WIC-1B-S/T-V3’.

Optional item
Switch/hub to connect the router & application server.
**Note: The UTP crossover cable can be used to connect
5. Switch/hub
the ISDN router & application server. This will not
required to have switch/hub installed.

Note (*): The DMA testing participants can opt for either the Cisco 1721 or CISCO 1841
model. Please note that CISCO has announced the end of life for the Cisco 1721 model
but will continue to support it. Bursa recommends DMA testing participants to opt for
the CISCO 1841 model if it is a new procurement. The IP address information & the
sample configuration of the ISDN router will be provided later and the ISDN dialup
speed will be limited to 128Kbps if it is equipped with one unit of ‘WIC-1B-S/T-V3’
module & one ISDN line.

The cost of an ISDN router configured to access to Bursa Trade is estimated to be
around RM5,500. Please note that the ISDN call charges during the testing period will
be borne by testing participants.

The diagram below illustrates the network requirements and how a connection is
established to conduct testing.
