In the financial sector, the demands on the network in a high frequency trading environment continue to grow in complexity and provide new challenges on a daily basis. In an environment where missing a trade by a millisecond can result in the loss of millions of dollars of bottom line revenue the need to achieve ultra low-latency and predictably high performance is mission critical. To achieve this goal, financial institutions are making significant investments to upgrade or replace their network assets to achieve greater performance and speed. With the QFX3500, these firms now have more of a choice of networking applications for their data centers – realizing more value and less risk – all while directly improving the overall workflow speed on the trading floor.
June is another exciting month for Juniper Networks as we engage with our customers, partners and Wall Street technology leaders in New York City at the 2011 STAC and SIFMA events.
At both events, Juniper Networks will be demonstrating the benefits of the QFabric architecture and how the QFX3500 delivers high performance and low latency for the financial industry where the lightning fast transactions are vital. With our strategic alliance partner IBM, we will be featuring the QFX3500 and IBM WebSphere Low Latency Messaging software solution which successfully completed the STAC-M2 Benchmark test earlier this year and delivered results superior to any other solution tested. You can see these results at http://www.juniper.net/us/en/products-services/switching/qfx-series/#literature.
For those of you attending the STAC or SIFMA events, please come visit the Juniper Networks booth and see how the QFabric architecture is redefining how the data center works by combining the scale and resiliency of a data center network with the operational simplicity of a single switch.
