CSP Inc., a provider of IT solutions and high-performance Ethernet products for diverse applications, today announced the release of their fourth generation of Myricom® network adapters. Myricom adapters are used in performance monitoring, test and measurement, network probes, cybersecurity, financial trading, and content creation/distribution. The fourth generation of adapter technology delivers new domain-specific functions and provides a quick path to 100 Gbit solutions.
For financial customers, these new products offer the lowest latency and highest message rates of any full-function adapter. CSPi Myricom adapters possess two unique features: A/B arbitration in hardware for up to four sources per feed and the ability to measure customer applications' "tick to trade" latency with low single-digit, nanosecond accuracy. Other features of the new adapters include support for more Ethernet ports per card and extremely accurate time stamps.
"The network adaptor latency race is pretty much over. The new race is around offloading the server to speed up the trading application itself," explains Craig Lund, General Manager of the CSPi High Performance Products division. "Our new adapters offload the server by handling the A/B arbitration in hardware. Moreover, the accuracy of timestamping on these adapters positions us to support Europe's new MiFID II requirements."
"Our experience as a beta customer for the fourth generation of adapters proves again the exceptional partner we have found in the CSPi Myricom team. Not only have we achieved remarkable network bandwidth and latency performance, but we have an innovative partner who provides excellent support, proactive communication and a shared understanding of what it takes to deliver a competitive electronic trading solution to the world market", said Daniel Ekengren, COO, Actant.
The Myricom 10G-PCIE-8D adapter is being field tested in 10 beta sites and first production units will start shipping to customers in Q2 2015.
