Moscow, Russia, London - Avelacom is now live with Metamako's C-Series network devices (using the MetaMux app, running an Intel Arria FPGA), enabling its clients in the Aurora Data Center in Illinois to access the CME Group markets. One of the key features of Metamako's FPGA-based low-latency switching device is its ability to replicate market data with a latency of 5 nanoseconds and to aggregate exchange-facing orders.

Kevin Covington, CEO of Metamako, said: "Avelacom is a great choice and an excellent addition to our roster of financial telecommunications clients. The combination of their ultra-fast connectivity with our unbeatable speeds will provide the trading community with exceptionally fast connectivity to key exchanges."

Avelacom plans to deploy Metamako devices at several more trading venues, initially across the Middle East and APAC.
