The Beeks PTP solution

Beeks Financial Cloud Precision Time Protocol (PTP) services allow our customers to comply with the regulatory requirements introduced by the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the European Securities Market Authority (ESMA), to record machine-to-machine trading transactions with an accuracy of one microsecond.

The cost of adding and maintaining a Grand Master clock to the network and ensuring consistent and reliable synchronisation means that the demand for a cost effective PTP solution that Beeks provide, is something our customers can either add to their existing trading infrastructure or cross connect to by subscribing to an on demand bare metal server in the relevant location.

PTP services are delivered from the Beeks hosted environment and are cabled directly from GPS on the roof of the datacentre to the Grand Master device. The solution allows our customers to comply with FINRA and MIFID II requirements.

The Beeks microwave solution

An additional and enhanced low latency trading capability is also available by deploying microwave connectivity between our Equinix NY4 and Aurora DC3 datacentres. This link provides Beeks customers with ultra low-latency connectivity over a robust wireless network that is double the size of most other commercially available routes.

The NY4 datacentre is a major hub for FX spot and forwards and increasingly for cryptocurrencies, while the DC3 datacentre serves CME futures markets. The microwave link allows low latency trading strategies in these asset classes to execute more efficiently between locations.
