      Critical System Updates

      Update - New iLink Architecture Phase 2

      Denotes update to the article

      CME Group will continue to launch Phase 2 of the new iLink Architecture, which implements Market Segment Gateways (MSGWs) throughout the iLink infrastructure.

      †Important MSGW Updates:

      • Access to TAS market during the first five minutes of the pre-open will remain restricted to  Phase 1 MSGW sessions until the Phase 2 launches are complete.  Starting Sunday, May 15, 2016, Phase 1 MSGW sessions cannot be used to enter TAS orders.  TAS customers will use CGW or new MSGW sessions to trade TAS products.
      • In the event of a technical issue with the new iLink failover process during the Phase 2 launch, MSGW sessions will be unavailable. MSGW customers may revert to their old Convenience Gateway (CGW) sessions, IPs and Ports to connect to the iLink CGW. CME Group strongly recommends MSGW customers retain their traded-in CGW  and Phase 1 MSGW sessions until Friday, July 8, 2016.
