Improving Network Timing in Financial Institutions: Regulatory Imperative or Opportunity to Achieve Operational Excellence?

WASHINGTON — Nov. 18, 2016 — Network timing issues are becoming increasingly important to financial trading institutions.

The European Union’s MiFID II (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) will likely impact precision time stamping in the U.S. The latest ATIS Interview provides insight into the importance of network timing in financial institutions. Kamatchi Gopalakrishnan, Distinguished Engineer and Synchronization Architect, Juniper Networks is featured. Make sure you know about the timing changes taking place and their impact.
