Related Topics

Pico, a provider of mission critical technology, data and analytic services for the financial markets community, has introduced ultra-low latency venue connectivity. 

Pico’s ultra-low latency solution supports clients with latency-sensitive trading strategies requiring highly accurate views of the market and faster execution times. Utilising high-performance Layer 1 switching technology, Pico can now achieve one-way market data latency of 5-87ns and round-trip latency of 140ns for order entry (an 80 per cent reduction from standard Layer 3 access). 

This new Layer 1 offering is supported by Pico’s global engineering expertise and instrumented with its best-in-class Corvil Analytics, assuring operational performance, transparency, and visibility. Corvil’s real-time analytics continuously monitors Layer 1 switch transit latency, with immediate alerts generated if nanosecond thresholds are violated, providing maximum operational transparency for latency-sensitive trading. 

End-of-day reports on details including message rates, microbursts, and gap detection give clients important service assurance visibility. 
Layer 1 connectivity is available across venues in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific (APAC), with Pico’s global service delivery team providing the required support for this turnkey solution to ensure rapid time to market. 
“Layer 1 access is an important component for many trading strategies and Pico’s advances in optimizing exchange connectivity latency set a new benchmark which gives clients the ability to gain a significant competitive edge,” says Roland Hamann, Chief Technology Officer & Head of APAC at Pico.  

“Pico is committed to delivering a differentiated client experience and we continue to invest in our next generation network to remain ahead in performance, security, scalability and transparency. This launch further strengthens our comprehensive range of network products that meet the full spectrum of electronic trading requirements.”
