CME Group has provided an update on post-migration iCross connectivity.

EBS Market customers with iCross connectivity will continue to see their iCross port as active/live after the migration to CME Globex. However the legacy EBS Market 1.0 platform will not be available. Customers that used their iCross connection for the sole purpose of accessing EBS Market 1.0 may cancel/disconnect the associated Equinix cross-connects.

EBS Direct customers with iCross connectivity will continue to see their iCross port as active/live after the migration to CME Globex. EBS Direct customers that have turned up RNet service to access EBS Direct 2.0 may cancel/disconnect the associated Equinix cross-connects supporting the legacy iCross connectivity.

However, EBS Direct customers that have not turned up RNet service will need to keep the cross-connects in place to be able to access EBS Direct 2.0 applications. EBS Direct 1.0 is no longer available.

EBS customers using iCross connectivity to access both EBS Market and EBS Direct over the same connection may cancel their legacy Equinix cross-connects only if they have turned up RNet service to access EBS Direct 2.0.

On October 15, 2022, the iCross service will be decommissioned.
