Mar 30, 2001, 00:00 ET from B2B ITS Corp

    STAMFORD, Conn., March 30 /PRNewswire/ -- B2B ITS is please to announce
 the second release of the open source .FIXantenna(TM) Engine, v.1.2.0.  Due to
 the enormous feedback from FIX developers at brokerage firms and major
 financial institutions, the B2B ITS team was able to make critical commercial
 enhancements to the latest version, adding many new features, with improved
 performance and open interfaces.  .FIXantenna(TM) Engine v 1.2.0 is available
 for download at http://fix.btobits.com.
     The high performance of .FIXantenna(TM) Engine demonstrates that this
 product can compete with other FIX Engines on the market, and is quickly
 becoming the preferred choice in the financial services industry -- over
 350 leading financial organizations worldwide are evaluating .FIXantenna(TM)
 Engine since its first release on January 9, 2001.
     B2B ITS is the first company to release an open source FIX Engine,
 embracing the ideals of open source community implementation, which allows for
 greater innovation.  By using only modern, open source solutions that are
 powerful, functional, and mature, customers are guaranteed superior, long-term
 value on their investment in these open source products.  Open source
 .FIXantenna(TM) Engine uses  Java and XML technologies, which are scalable,
 cross platform, and extensible, and are easily integrated with other systems,
 including proprietary systems.  And because the technologies are open source,
 B2B ITS customers pay no licensing fees, no charges for upgrades, and will
 always have access to the system's source code.  B2B ITS customers pay only
 for any required customization, implementation, and technical support.
     B2B ITS staffs a highly qualified team of FIX developers, experienced in
 FIX systems integration, OMS, and the development of intelligent FIX protocol
 based products.  Its family of FIX products are being used by a wide variety
 of customers - from small brokerage firms, that until the advent of open
 source .FIXantenna(TM) Engine, could not afford to pay licensing fees charged
 by other FIX vendors, to major financial institutions that are adopting open
 source solutions because of their universality and flexibility.
     B2B ITS offers guaranteed technical support to its .FIXantenna(TM) Engine
 customers at affordable rates.  Technical support is also complimented by an
 online community development forum on the .FIXantenna(TM) site, which enables
 .FIXantenna(TM) Engine developers to communicate with each other and exchange
 valuable information.
     For more information about open source .FIXantenna(TM) Engine, FIX systems
 integration, and other .FIXantenna(TM) solutions, contact the B2B ITS team of
