Metamako and Redline Trading Solutions have teamed up to deliver an ultra-low latency end-to-end solution for automated trading that is based on the former’s low-latency, FPGA-enabled network devices and the latter’s high-performance market data and order execution systems.
The solution combines Redline’s InRush consolidated market data feeds with Metamako network devices to allow InRush to receive data from over 150 global exchanges and offer data fan-out in 5 nanoseconds. Clients can obtain normalised market data with the lowest possible network latency for a wide range of asset classes including equities, derivatives, FX, fixed income and commodities.
As well as the integration of Metamako’s network devices in Redline’s trading platform, Metamako devices running the MetaWatch application and providing packet timestamps of market data with a precision of 1 nanosecond are being used to feed data into Redline’s Market Data Recorder, enabling time-accurate back testing of trading strategies, trade compliance verification, and analysis of market events.
Metamako devices can also be used to connect Redline’s Order Execution Gateway to exchanges for significantly reduced switching latency on order entry and aggregation.
Mark Skalabrin, CEO at Redline, says: “Redline’s ability to run sophisticated and complex trading strategies with ultra-low latency, end-to-end performance requires the fastest network connection to and from each trading venue. Metamako’s devices are proven to be far faster than any conventional switch. Redline managed service experts are deploying Metamako’s switches for our joint customers that are gaining a competitive advantage with the integrated, high-speed solution.”
