Sub-nanosecond FINRA Provable Timestamp; Live in the US and Europe for Global Synchronization of Trading Systems
LONDON – 03 July 2013 – Perseus Telecom, a leading provider of ultra-low latency, high capacity networks from market-to-market, today announced its High Precision Time™ offering that provides deterministic synchronization with the US timescale UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) assisting firms balance enterprise systems and meet regulation guidelines.
Regulatory mandates and technological efficiencies continue to drive the need for more transparency in low latency high speed trading. This has pushed firms to move low latency policies deeper through the stack from the wire to the chipset, garnering the need to ingest provable time more accurately. Widespread deployment of time platforms use a combination of GPS time data and NTP (Network Time Protocol) for the delivery of time, where both are proving less reliable with high latency time synchronization despite the growth of market data and faster processing speeds across financial markets.
The Perseus time service utilizes 1 PPS (Pulse Per Second), an electrical signal Perseus uses to condition a customer server clock with the highest precision time data delivery backed by a Perseus SLA of less than one nanosecond. Other Perseus technologies such as fiber-optic and wireless connectivity with proximity colocation, all contribute to condition local grandmaster atomic clocks that feed time at electrical pulse speeds to customer trading systems and applications.
Stewart Orrell, Managing Director, Global Capital Markets at Equinix commented, “We are very pleased to have Perseus provide new critical infrastructure for certifiable time data across the Equinix ecosystem both in the US and now in Europe. Having financial firms able to reference UTC time data across existing trading ecosystems helps meet client requirements as they communicate and trade from market to market.”
The atomic clock installation at the Equinix LD4 datacenter was built to serve local and international broker dealers and the buy-sides such as High Frequency Trading firms. This new environment allows participants to interoperate their extremely fast market data, algorithmic and order execution servers in a colocated LAN environment a few feet from the Perseus atomic clocks and the markets of the Aquis Exchange, BATS-Chi-X, BOAT, ICAP EBS, Nasdaq OMX NLX, Turquoise and the London Metal Exchange (LME).
Andrew Kusminsky, Chief Operating and Strategy Officer at Perseus said, “Rolling out High Precision Time™ in Equinix datacenters is one of our key strategies to help our financial customers performing at the lowest latency speeds in global markets. The Perseus precision time services help to mitigate risk, meet new stringent financial compliance guidelines, and ensure HFT systems are consistently accurate as they trade over our ultra low-latency networks including QuanTA, LiquidPath® and wireless/microwave.”

July 1, 2013 took New Jersey by storm, literally. With torrential rains, huge gusts of wind and tornado touch downs confirmed in the State of New Jersey, it is just another reminder to ensure our businesses have a continuity and disaster recovery plan for any time of the year. The storm report for 2013 has already touted increased chances of Hurricanes. Since we are not in the Midwest, we often forget that Tornadoes and other extreme weather conditions can affect the New York metro area, and on a moment’s notice.
I remember yesterday receiving text warnings of potential flood conditions. Looking out the window, it appeared overcast, damp – the humidity sat in the air. In about 5 minutes from the receipt of the warning, torrential rains poured down. Within another fifteen minutes I looked out the window to watch a heavy stream of water pouring down the street. This type of weather pattern is quickly becoming the norm for the Northeast. Couple these storms with winds, high tides, and an already saturated ground, the chances of floods, downed trees causing downed wires, structural damage to buildings and homes is inevitable.
While businesses can’t protect the homes of their employees or ensure their ability to perform their jobs during these stormy conditions, companies must ensure their business operations remain online, accessible and functional at all times. Lam Cloud Management operates a fully integrated data center, business continuity, disaster recovery and workplace recovery facility in Cranbury, N.J. Just off exit 8A of the NJ Turnpike, the facility is highly fortified with secure infrastructure and provides businesses locally and beyond a dependable facility to ensure their business operations. Not just for the technology brains of a company, Lam Cloud’s facility provides workplace recovery solutions that enable employees to continue to do their job, even if your corporate facilities are inaccessible.
Stormy weather doesn’t mean your business must ride the waves, battening down the hatches, hoping it will stay together and afloat. Lam Cloud’s solutions provide you that business assurance so that you can focus on the needs of your customers, provide a safe haven for employees and continue business operations regardless of what Mother Nature spurs on us.
