Finance & Banking

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

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

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