Avelacom to deploy LDA’s FPGA devices for HFT and algo trading

Rick Steves

Avelacom offers access to market data feeds across financial markets in London, Frankfurt, New York, Chicago and Tokyo and emerging markets in Eastern Europe, APAC, and Latin America.

Big Data represents the future of Risk Management

Avelacom has partnered with LDA Technologies to deploy FPGA-enabled devices across its network, which will result in lower latency, and improve HFT and algo trading firms’ performance.

LDA’s FPGA-enabled network devices perform extensive packet validation and switch in less than 50 nanoseconds, at least 3 times faster than conventional switches, while also improving the network efficiency by using innovative bandwidth management algorithms.

Avelacom will add these new hardware solutions in both its wireline and wireless networks to provide ultra-low latency exchange access and market data feeds across financial markets in London, Frankfurt, New York, Chicago and Tokyo and emerging markets in Eastern Europe, APAC, and Latin America.

Its deployment is likely to boost Avelacom’s competitive edge with market participants, especially the ones using high-frequency trading strategies, benefiting the most as market volatility increased volumes and competition.

Algorithmic trading strategies require nanosecond accuracy for market data and order entry transfer, such as needed by global market-making, arbitrage, and other high-performance trading desks.

Aleksey Larichev, Chief Executive Officer of Avelacom, said: “Avelacom’s aim has always been to deliver the highest network performance, using a combination of the shortest paths and in-hardware acceleration.

“This helps us to stand out as the leader in ultra-low latency solutions and meets the needs of global financial institutions that are trading across multiple trading venues and assets, and use latency sensitive strategies. We’ve launched our ultra-low latency solutions at a good time: with the growth of market volatility, our latency optimization is likely to be even more important.”

Vahan Sardaryan, Co-Founder and CEO of LDA Technologies, said: “Our FPGA-based hardware and IP are validated by professional trading community and known to provide the best-in-class latencies. Bandwidth management is a crucial part of any shared network, our solutions will help Avelacom to manage its network performance with the highest standards and lowest possible latencies, and create a huge potential for future technology upgrades.”
