Frequently Asked Questions

600mm x 1200mm x 2000mm – 19” standard.
There are two hosting types:

  • trading colocation: ½ rack units with 20 U and 3kW
  • web colocation: ¼ rack units with 10 U and 1.5kW
For each ½ rack 3kW are provided. There is redundancy and the environment is supported by a generator.
Two 10 Gb Multi Mode optical fibers (active and contingency) are provided at colocation trading or two 1 Gb uplinks (active and contingency) in copper (RJ45) are provided at web colocation.
The Exchange does not provide internet, but for web colocation it authorizes participants to contract the connection and/or dedicated links directly with the operator. The website has two telecommunications rooms with the certified operators.
No, but it is necessary to contract a link in order to manage the contracted environment.
The Data Center is in Santana de Parnaíba (SP).
The building has access control and the Data Center has exclusive biometric access control.
Yes. Access must be requested by sending an email to colocation@bvmf.com.br. After assessment, access will be scheduled.
Yes, the Smart Hands service, which may be requested by email (colocation@bvmf.com.br).
No, the telecommunications areas are the same for RCB and for dedicated circuits.

No, operators’ equipment is restricted to the telecommunications rooms.

There will be no change. Even when the migration occurs, the same redundancy methods will continue to be used, therefore access to the PUMA Trading System remains unchanged. In other words, the update to the fiber-optics communications architecture will not have to be executed in this proposed scenario.
The migration process is internal. If there is no configuration or customized specification, migration will occur and no action will be required in the case of RCB network connections. If the colocation client has a more specific configuration (such as more wide-ranging redundancy processes), changes related to the IP ranges etc. will be mandatory.
The colocation client will be limited to the bandwidth limit that it has signed up for.
The Technology Infrastructure Access Manual currently encompasses these recommendations and requirements. It should be noted that the minimum suggestions are per service.
LiNe APD will no longer be used. In order for the cross to occur both accounts will have to be registered at the same gateway.
As there will be no protocol change, certification environments will remain the same.
Data link circuits were liberated on April 24, 2017. It has been possible to request management VPNs ever since that date.
B3 guarantees the competitiveness and wide variety of clients allocated in the colocation environment.
Yes. Although the modalities have the same standards, the web modality will pass through a security layer, which will result in greater latency.
B3 will analyze each reservation request. It is therefore important to plan any expansion in advance.
Yes. The change to the business model means that henceforth PUMALinks will be charged.

VPN may be configured with several peers and accessing at several different registers. B3 will do the configurations. Forms will be sent.
