Inet (disambiguation)

Inet or INET may refer to:

  • The Internet, a pervasive layered networking technology
  • Inet, an electronic trading platform from the 1970s until its acquisition in 2002
  • INET, the Institute for New Economic Thinking, a New York City think tank
  • Inet TV, a South Korean television channel
  • A company in Denji Sentai Megaranger, a Japanese television serial of 1997–1998

Inet was an electronic trading platform based on a system developed by Instinet in the 1970s that merged with Island Exchange in 2002 and was subsequently acquired by NASDAQ in 2005.

Inet, like other electronic communication networks, was an order-pairing system that give brokerage firms the power to electronically track and match reciprocal buy and sell orders at the same limit price and lot size. An efficient and reliable system that reduced costs to both brokerage firms and investors and facilitate high speed pairings of buy and sell orders.

The Inet name continues to be used by Nasdaq for later trading platforms such as the Genium Inet trading platform.

Today the NASDAQ stock exchange system in New York is called "INET". INET uses a very fast middleware bus that is called Inet. The derivative exchange system Genium Inet uses the same middleware bus Inet. Genium Inet is the successor to the CLICK derivate exchange system. The main difference between INET and Genium Inet is that INET is a stock exchange system (that is not sold), and Genium Inet is a derivative system (that is sold to other exchanges by NASDAQ OMX).
