Korusys are developing a range of Network Synchronisation products aimed at bringing telecom quality synchronisation to the
Financial, Telecom, Test and Measurement and Industrial marketplaces.
First in the range is the PrecisionPTP PCI card, a highly accurate IEEE1588-2008 PCI node capable of delivering telecoms quality
synchronisation within a PC based system or as a standalone OEM module.
The second released product is the Korusync PTP PCIe card, bringing telecoms quality synchronisation to the financial infrastructure market.
It is delivered with a daemon that delivers the card's time, highly accurately, into the Linux system.
Further software applications are available with the card including
AppClock : A software app that provides ultra low latency access to super-accurate time by replacing the heavyweight
Linux system clock with a lightweight, scalable and nanosecond accurate software clock.
AppTrack : A software app that allows the user to provide super-accurate timestamps to events inside the user application space and to have these
forwarded and logged in an ultra lightweight manner. It allows visibility of intra core transactions at the software level to help tune and monitor the performance of Trading algorithms.
To be released in late 2011 is a PTP/NTP Grand Master with some exciting additional features specifically for the Financial sector.

The Korusys Korusync PCIe Card delivers class leading accurate
time to Servers via the IEEE 1588-2008 protocol. The system has been developed specifically for the financial infrastructure market space.
The system includes the Timing Toolkit suite of software :
Korusyncd : A daemon that allows the server system clock to disciplined to within 10's of ns of UTC
AppClock : Provides a super lightweight and highly accurate replacement for the linux system clock. Now your applications can read time accurately and without degrading algorithm performance.
AppTrack : Provides a lightweight API logging function to provide accurately timed logs of internal software trading transactions. Now you have the ability to timestamp and record intra-core process transactions without affecting your system performance.
Further details of the application of this technology to the High Frequency Trading financial
infrastructure can be found in the White Papers and the associated Product Brief and DataSheet.
