You can configure BIG-IP® 10000 and 12000 Series systems that are running BIG-IP software version 12.1.0 to use a customized firmware to manage traffic for hardware-optimized, low-latency electronic trading. This FIX low latency (FIX LL) solution provides enhanced collision handling.
There are several tasks you can perform to implement hardware-optimized FIX low-latency electronic trading.
Please contact your F5® Networks support representative to acquire the necessary license.
This implementation configures a BIG-IP® system to manage low-latency electronic trading functionality, optimizing the system for predictable latency and jitter. Clients who send FIX packets to the virtual server's Destination address all receive this low-latency service.
