SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION [Release No. 34–73132; File No. SR– NASDAQ–2014–092] Self-Regulatory Organizations; The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC; Notice of Filing and Immediate Effectiveness of Proposed Rule Change To Amend Fees for Optional Wireless Connectivity for Co-located Clients September 17, 2014. Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (‘‘Act’’),1 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,2 notice is hereby given that on September 4, 2014, The NASDAQ Stock Market LLC (‘‘NASDAQ’’ or ‘‘Exchange’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I, II, and III below, which Items have been prepared by the Exchange. The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of the Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to amend fees assessed clients for wireless connectivity that enables clients to receive data from the New York Stock Exchange (‘‘NYSE’’) and NASDAQ. Specifically, NASDAQ proposes to amend fees assessed for wireless connectivity for co-located clients in NASDAQ’s Carteret data center to receive NYSE, and NYSE ARCA multicast market data feeds. It also proposes to amend fees assessed for remote multicast ITCH (‘‘MITCH’’) Wave Ports for clients co-located at other third-party data centers, through which NASDAQ TotalView ITCH market data will be distributed after delivery to those data centers via wireless network. While the proposed changes to the rules pursuant to this proposal are effective upon filing, the Exchange has designated that they become operative on October 1, 2014. The text of the proposed rule change is available at http:// nasdaq.cchwallstreet.com, at the Exchange’s principal office, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the Exchange included statements [FR Doc. 2014–22551 Filed 9–22–14; 8:45 am] 1 15 BILLING CODE 8011–01–P 2 17 VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:55 Sep 22, 2014 Jkt 232001 PO 00000 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. Frm 00098 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 concerning the purpose of and basis for the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of these statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in Sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant aspects of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose NASDAQ is proposing to amend fees assessed under NASDAQ Rule 7034 for the delivery of third-party market data to co-located clients in NASDAQ’s Carteret data center clients via a wireless network using millimeter wave or microwave technology. NASDAQ is also proposing to amend fees assessed under NASDAQ Rule 7015 for remote Multi-cast ITCH Wave Ports for clients co-located at other third-party data centers, through which NASDAQ TotalView ITCH market data will be distributed after delivery to those data centers via wireless network. Changes to NYSE Wireless Connectivity NASDAQ offers optional wireless connectivity to clients who had requested such connectivity for other markets’ data. NASDAQ uses network vendors to supply wireless connectivity from the Carteret, NJ data center to the data centers of other exchanges.3 The vendor installs, tests and maintains the necessary communication equipment for this wireless network between the data centers. The wireless connectivity is an optional alternative to fiber optic network connectivity, providing lower latency because the wireless signals travel a straight, unimpeded line and because light waves travel faster through air than through glass (fiber optics). Because wireless transmission of such data requires an unimpeded line of sight between Carteret and the data center of the market to which it is connecting, NASDAQ and its vendors incur costs associated with maintaining hardware and leasing towers on which its microwave dishes and the associated hardware are mounted, which generally increase as distance between data centers increase.4 3 NASDAQ OMX acts as re-distributor of these third-party market data feeds, capturing the data at the originating data centers and transporting the data to the Carteret data center. 4 Because direct line of sight between Carteret and the data centers of other exchanges is not possible, NASDAQ’s vendors leases as many towers and associated equipment as needed to ensure an E:\FR\FM\23SEN1.SGM 23SEN1
