Technology Partners

Our industry partners

Velocimetrics works with leading suppliers globally to ensure optimal integration with existing and new client technology choices.  Here are just some of the many firms whose products Velocimetrics’ technology is able to support:

APCON

The APCON IntellaFlex XR intelligent network monitoring switch is the next generation of APCON’s traffic visibility technology. It is designed for scalable high-capacity, reliable data aggregation and filtering, which increases tool efficiency and lowers enterprise monitoring costs.  

Using IntellaFlex, packets captured using SPANs, taps and other data sources at multiple points across high-speed financial networks, can be effectively aggregated. After filtering and de-duplicating the data, allocating high precision timestamps and VLAN port location tags, the packets can then be passed onto Velocimetrics’ TipOff for detailed examination facilitating accurate network, middleware and market data analysis.

Emulux

Emulex, a leader in network connectivity, monitoring and management, provides hardware and software solutions enabling unrivaled end-to-end application visibility, optimisation and acceleration for global networks that support enterprise, cloud, government and telecommunications.  The Endace division of Emulex provides network visibility products that deliver complete network performance management at speeds up to 100Gb Ethernet.

The Endace Application Dock is a virtualised hosting environment, native to every EndaceProbe™ Intelligent Network Recorder (INR), which when combined with the Velocimetrics financial trading system application, offers a unique, real-time view of the business flows transiting a trading system, from the big picture and down to the record of individual steps of a particular price, quote or trade.  With the unmatched capability of the EndaceProbe INR to capture high fidelity, 100 percent accurate network traffic, an organisation can take a real-time view of its’ business trade items all the way through to the underlying packets and their payload.

By combining these technologies into a single solution that is both robust, and powerful, a business can respond to any trade latency anomalies and take immediate and definitive action.  Operations teams can determine whether the problems reside within the IT infrastructure or within the applications running on the network – all through a single, integrated monitoring environment.  Architects and developers can then build a Service Level Agreement into the network and applications’ monitoring architecture from the start of development, which then allows them to dynamically control the reporting once in production.  This approach to real-time monitoring provides instant insight at every level of a trading, or e-commerce architecture from the front to the back office.
