Finance & Banking

Financial sector means a number of different network environments, each with its own specific needs. Banks, operators of stock exchanges, electronic traders -- they all need to fulfill certain conditions including security, regulations, availability, low latency etc. This cannot be achieved without cutting edge hardware.


Networks of banks and other financial institutions are exposed to security threats just like any other network. However, with all transactions being performed online, the security of banking networks is doubly important. Any outage can have a serious impact, on a global scale as the worst case scenario. Thus, a hardware that guarantees lossless packet processing is crucial. Netcope focuses on providing deterministic traffic processing with programmable network adapters to accelerate security applications. Flexibility of FPGA technology enables deployment for various speeds up to 100Gbps. Electronic traders and operators of stock exchanges deal with a task of processing specific trading data. Low latency, high frequency, and trading strategy are key factors in being successful in electronic trading.

While the strategy is solely in the scope of the trader, low latency and high frequency of the platform for electronic trading is given by the technologies used. Netcope offers the Tradecope solution that excels in both ways. It allows to implement a trading strategy directly in hardware in a high-level language, thus no intellectual knowledge is revealed and no expert knowledge of hardware is needed. Tradecope uses FPGA technology to implement all the operations of processing trading traffic and executing the strategy so that the latency is as low as possible and execution is solely in hardware avoiding latency of communication with software. More information can be found on the low-latency electronic trading page.

Netcope Success Stories


NSF-100G2-Picomass-Netcope Network Traffic Monitoring

Picomass uses Netcope Session Filter in the IPS200 DPI solution because NSF is capable of offloading traffic to hardware. This makes real-time DPI on 100G networks possible.

Flowmon Networks

Flowmon Networks Network Traffic Monitoring

Flowmon Networks aims to develop a new generation of NetFlow/IPFIX probes that can monitor and process traffic of 100GE high-speed networks. Because of that, Flowmon Networks needs to find a network card that would be able of handling 100 GE monitoring requirements.
