A prominent US stock exchange uses new ViaLite optical fiber GPS/GNSS links to ensure its IT systems receive mission-critical timing and synchronization signals. Knowledge of the precise time is crucial in guaranteeing the performance of high-speed, low-latency trading systems.
The distributed GPS equipment includes a ViaLite GPS 1U chassis with integrated 1×8 and 1×16 GPS splitters for the receiving side. Also supplied are Blue OEM modules for the transmit side, which can support links as long as 50 km or more.
“ViaLite products were chosen for their advanced performance, as well as our best-in-class quality, reliability, and support,” said Craig Somach, ViaLite Director of Sales.
