Our client has successfully deployed Netcope's FPGA platform even with no previous experience with this technology. Their latency was reduced to nanoseconds from microseconds, enabling them to enter into a new playfield in the stock markets and create a new revenue stream.
Deployment of Netcope’s FPGA Platform Created a New Revenue Stream for Trading Firm
A small proprietary trading firm deploys Tradecope to an Emerging Market Exchange and pioneers the use of the FPGA acceleration to increase the profitability of their trading strategy.
Who doesn’t get ahead gets left behind. Even if your trading strategy generates profit, it is always good practice to think ahead and work on improvements.
