Click here to download now
Overview: Financial services firms specializing in high frequency trading are looking to reduce network latency anywhere within the algorithm-based trading workflow. In the past, efforts to reduce latency have been implemented with super-fast computers, faster software, and faster storage connections. Today, saving fractions of seconds by reducing data transport latency in network systems and fiber-based transport networks is receiving more attention. In addition, since low-latency market data is uncompressed and trading volumes are increasing so rapidly, much more bandwidth capacity is required. Ciena's new low-latency, high-capacity fiber optic networking solutions address these demanding requirements for high frequency trading driven by advanced algorithms.
