SIFMA, New York – June 13, 2011 – Mellanox® Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: MLNX; TASE: MLNX), a leading supplier of high-performance, end-to-end connectivity solutions for data center servers and storage systems, today announced that Toronto-based CNSX Markets Inc. has purchased Mellanox Vantage™ 6024 24-port 10GbE switches to accelerate market data distribution, and they will be rolled out to support other parts of the Canadian stock market’s operations.
“Mellanox’s Vantage 10GbE switches deliver a material performance upgrade over the competition at a substantially lower cost,” said Richard W. Carleton, VP Corporate Development of CNSX Markets. “We are confident that Mellanox’s current products and roadmap provide CNSX Markets with a platform that will permit us to meet our customers’ needs as our business continues to grow.”
CNSX Markets operates two trading venues: the Canadian National Stock Exchange, a listed market for venture capital stocks, and Pure Trading, a high-capacity/low latency system for stocks listed on other Canadian stock exchanges. Given the extremely competitive nature of global financial markets, and growing demand for high-frequency trading, it is important for CNSX Markets to provide the fastest possible trade execution times and efficiently manage the inbound and outbound flows of orders and market information. The Canadian market plans to use Mellanox Ethernet and InfiniBand solutions to complement a trading infrastructure that offers the lowest possible latency.
“IT departments in financial capital markets are facing huge growth in the volume of market data, while they are also under pressure to improve trade execution times,” said Asaf Somekh, vice president of solution marketing at Mellanox Technologies. “CNSX Markets adds to the growing list of exchanges that turn to Mellanox to build networks with the best possible performance. We appreciate their commitment to Mellanox, and are looking forward to supporting their current and future needs.”
The Mellanox Vantage 6024 switch is a low latency, high performance Layer 2/3 top-of-rack switch, and enables new levels of efficiency, scalability and real-time application performance, while also consolidating multiple/redundant network tiers and significantly reducing infrastructure expenses. With 24 ports of 10GbE line-rate connectivity and power consumption as low as 115 Watts (4.8 Watts/port), the Mellanox Vantage 6024 switch features an impressive Layer two and three protocol stack, enabling the most robust and advanced 10GbE fabric.
