Cisco White Paper: High-Performance Automated Trading Network Architectures Performance Without Loss—Performance When It Counts

Anyone interested in Cisco White Paper: High-Performance Automated Trading Network Architectures Performance Without Loss—Performance When It Counts

Introduction

Firms in the automated trading business recognize that having a low-latency infrastructure can improve the profits of the business. In this paper, we explore the key considerations to implementing an ultra- low-latency network and highlight some key misconceptions when evaluating the suitability of network platforms for automated trading businesses.

High-Frequency Trading Market
Trading in financial markets is increasingly being performed by software programs. These programs run a variety of businesses including proprietary trading for a firm and services such as best execution for the firm’s customers. In particular, the term “high-frequency trading,” or HFT, has gained popularity to describe the most intensive of the automated trading businesses.
A competitive advantage in all these businesses is to be able to access the liquidity pool faster than the competition. To this end, firms are focused on lowering the latency of the end-to-end trade flow.

Q&A: Cisco’s Dave Malik on New Nexus Switches and Trading Fabric…

 

Q&A: Cisco’s Dave Malik on New Nexus Switches and Trading Fabric…

low-latency.com

I’d like to see what performance benefits would be gained if the softwareset on the nexus would be trimmed down to only what is needed for trading apps?

—-

Indifferent, it’s a marketing based proposition IMHO and no more than that.
Interestingly I also observe the slight of hand in the interview of first talking about N3K and then switching to N2K FEX. So which one is recommended for a Cisco Trading Fabric – it cannot be both. What characteristic of N5K makes it a good platform for a Trading Architecture, perhaps I am missing something. Can we also define what Cisco mean when they talk of a Fabric i.e. characteristics and scale?

Slow down in corporate spending? Reports from Cisco and IBM seem to reflect that

Slow down in corporate spending? Reports from Cisco and IBM seem to reflect that

Here is a another relevant article from Bloomberg.
Quotes:
“It’s been business investment, particularly technology, that’s been in the driver’s seat,”… “unless something else picks up the pace, it means the outlook for the economy is going to be that much dimmer.”

“CEOs see mixed signals and they’re a little bit slower to put their foot down on the gas pedal, and they pick their foot off the gas pedal a little bit faster,” John Chambers, Cisco’s chief executive officer
“The weakness in this type of services could lead investors to question broader” t
To be sure, Cisco said it hired 2,000 workers last quarter and would add an additional 3,000 to help its businesses grow globally. That signals confidence in the recovery, said Simon Leopold, an analyst at Morgan Keegan & Co. in New York.

Stats:
Corporate investment is among the few remaining sources of economic growth as the effects of government stimulus measures wane and unemployment remains stuck near a 26-year high. Economists this week cut their forecasts for the second half of the year as the more than 8 million jobs lost during the recession hamstring consumer spending.

The Institute for Supply Management’s manufacturing gauge dropped for a third month in July, signaling a cooler pace of factory growth, which accounts for 11 percent of the economy

IBM, the world’s biggest computer-services company, last month reported revenue that missed analysts’ estimates, citing a decline in services-contract signings. Signings fell 12 percent to $12.3 billion, the second straight quarterly drop in contracts for services, which make up more than half of IBM’s total revenue.
