Metamako Makes it into China with Low-Latency Network Devices

Metamako has won certification to market its ultra-low latency, field programmable gate array (FPGA) network platforms in China. The completion and award of China Compulsory Certification (CCC) supports the company’s strategy of expansion in Asia, which started last year with an office in Tokyo and followed with reseller agreements in Hong Kong.

The CCC is a requirement for technology companies to sell hardware in China and the certification gives Metamako fully-regulated access to the Chinese market. The company’s first products to be certified include the MetaConnect 48 low-latency layer 1+ switch and the MetaMux 48 series of switches, which are FPGA-enabled devices.

Kevin Covington, CEO of Metamako, says: “We have been working successfully with local resellers since the beginning of this year and have sold our solutions to clients in Hong Kong. However, until now it has not been possible to sell our technology in mainland China. This is the first step in getting all our products certified for sale in China, a market which offers enormous potential.”

Metamako plans to sell its devices to domestic brokers, market makers and exchanges in China, as well as to FPGA developers that want to build on Metamako’s capabilities in programmability and configurability. Metamako says the Chinese market is particularly interested in the company’s ability to provide devices that are deterministic, with virtually undetectable jitter, and comprehensive packet statistics that are needed for network monitoring and diagnostics.
