We’re proud to be exhibiting at the Trading Show in Chicago on 9-10th May.
This is the second year in a row we’re sponsoring the event at Navy Pier in Chicago, which boasts 1200 attendees, and presentations from leaders in the finance industry.
In 2017, our CEO and Founder, Michael Ourabah joined the ‘Ultra-low latency connectivity’ panel alongside senior representatives from CME Group, ZNES Group and G2 Trading.
Despite LEO technology being perceived as the one to watch, Michael believes that LEO will not take over as the one and only method of transferring data:
“I think microwave, millimetre wave and fibre technology all complement each other, and it is clear that LEO satellites are the next-generation of connectivity, how that can be applied to high-frequency trading remains a big question mark.”
Wireless is already here and is being proven as a competitive differentiator more and more every day.
Connect with Wireless
Advancements across microwave and millimetre wave mean adoption within the international trading community is growing.
Wireless networks have shaved milliseconds off established trading routes and simplified access into lucrative emerging exchanges. Microwave, which can transmit data at speeds approximately 50% faster than fibre, is a crucial competitive advantage in the race to zero.
Recognising the benefits associated with wireless we acquired Apsara Networks, a market-leading wireless provider. Apsara’s wireless microwave network connects some of the world’s most important liquidity venues, including its New Jersey route spanning Nasdaq, NYSE and BATS.
