Who are the leading vendors for low latency and where is the market heading?
I’m investigating on behalf of some major banks, looking into the 3 areas of market data distribution, multicast to unicast market data feeds and algorithmic trading – I would like to know which vendors lead the pack on each of the 3 areas.

A few friends of mine are VPs at a company called Solace Systems (www.solacesystems.com). They make messaging boxes that translate market messages between formats (FIX, FAST, custom APIs, etc) and handle reliable delivery of messages, both unicast and multicast. Their’s is a low latency hardware (FPGA) based solution. The company is 8+ years old and seems to be doing fairly well.

Rapid Addition (which for the sake of full disclosure is the company I work for) make the lowest latency software in the FIX arena – complementing the middleware offerings of companies such as Solace. The difference between us and others is that our latency is deterministic. Anyone can quote numbers but what counts is not just that they are low numbers but that the spread on the numbers is tight. We can take in a message, parse it, simulate an algo action, create an order and put it on the wire in sub 15us with a Std Dev of sub 1us… and we’ll be yet faster soon.

Several of those mentioned above and more will be at TradeTech Architecture this September If you are keen to come along to the event just let me know.

About caustic

Hi i there My name is Bryan Downing. I am part of a company called QuantLabs.Net This is specifically a company with a high profile blog about technology, trading, financial, investment, quant, etc. It posts things on how to do job interviews with large companies like Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, Citibank, and IBM. It also posts different unique tips and tricks on Java, C++, or C programming. It posts about different techniques in learning about Matlab and building models or strategies. There is a lot here if you are into venturing into the financial world like quant or technical analysis. It also discusses the future generation of trading and programming Specialties: C++, Java, C#, Matlab, quant, models, strategies, technical analysis, linux, windows P.S. I have been known to be the worst typist. Do not be offended by it as I like to bang stuff out and put priorty of what I do over typing. Maybe one day I can get a full time copy editor to help out. Do note I prefer videos as they are much easier to produce so check out my many video at youtube.com/quantlabs
