    • CME Clearing will upgrade MQM clearing confirms routing from the mainframe to a Linux based MQM routing system.  This upgrade will enhance clearing confirm routing and provide a more robust MQM messaging to clearing firms and service providers.

      The Linux routing system will have a different IP address and therefore, require Clearing Member Firms and Service Providers to permission the MQM feed from this new CME IP addresses to your Production and Disaster Recovery location.  Additionally, the migration will be gradual to give the firms ample time to test and plan it accordingly.  Firms can test this in their Certification and New Release environments.

      We will be contacting your firms' network and MQM techinicians to test the new routing address and messaging.  If you have any questions please contact CME Clearing Services at (312) 207-2525 or via e-mail at ccs@cmegroup.com.

      Thank you.
