Network latency measurement

For financial companies operating high- speed trading networks, millisecond delays can mean missed opportunity. To make sure transactions happen as quickly as possible, banks and exchanges must measure network latency to prove they are providing the lowest possible latency to traders, clients, and customers.

By comparing the timestamps on packets at multiple network nodes, transactional latency can be calculated.

Minimize latency

Timestamping packets

In stock exchanges and other automated trading environments, network latency is expressed as the delay induced as a transaction packet traverses the network. In this environment, millisecond-level delays can have a profound effect on a trader's results, so timestamping packets is crucial. Financial companies operating high-speed trading networks are therefore uniquely sensitive to latency, and must always monitor to identify and reduce it.
