MEMX Selects Beeks for Latency Monitoring of New Exchange

Members Exchange (MEMX), an emerging US equities exchange, has selected Beeks, a UK-based trading connectivity and infrastructure specialist, for latency monitoring, following a competitive review of packet capture, latency and analytics solutions. As a new technology-driven stock exchange, MEMX had no legacy systems to integrate and no pre-conceived bias towards any particular solution. During the assessment and evaluation phase, MEMX focused on two key areas; high fidelity data capture and the ability to provide insights regarding functions critical to their technology stack.

The Beeks solution will allow MEMX to handle expected data rates, including microbursts, with scale to support the exchange’s growth projections. The solution enables MEMX to capture traffic on its systems with zero data loss, and provides analysis tools that support the exchange’s core engineering effort to achieve a fast, deterministic and fair experience for its clients. The ability to deploy on its own hardware will allow MEMX to manage the architecture and scale the solution to meet its performance and capacity objectives.
