Why Nanosecond Precision is Needed in High Performance Trading

In this interview, we talk to Dan Joe Barry, Vice President of Marketing at Napatech, about why firms are having to raise the bar in terms of timing precision and accuracy as they go from 1 Gbps networks to 10, 40 and 100 Gbps, and why microsecond accuracy is not going to cut it any more. Dan Joe also discusses:

- What kind of methods currently exist for precision time-stamping and synchronisation (and just how accurate are they)?
- Issues around Network Time Protocol (NTP) in software
- How to smoothly get back to accurate time if a GPS signal is lost
