A network optimized with Corvil Analytics

The regional network meshes link the data centers in which Pico offers its managed infrastructure services connections to trading venues and redistributes market data feeds. We use the lowest latency paths available for the regional meshes, and we continuously monitor the telecoms market to ensure that we take advantage of faster routes as they become available.

Key Capabilities

Market Data

"Turbo" ensures that even if a Corvil appliance is capturing at high speed, PCAPs can be exported at high speed to ensure a responsive user experience.

Scalable

Corvil appliances handle up to 100Gbps, can be horizontally scaled and provide a single point of orchestration, visibility and investigation via a central manager.

Agg Tap Support

Port tagging and timestamp support for all major vendor. Only Corvil can automatically capture packs at multiple points and store each copy of the packets, rather than deduplicate.

Modular

Flexibile, module-based system enables quick and easy software upgrade paths from Network Capture to Network Analytics, and Trading Analytics.

Compression

Automatic streaming compression of all packets maximizes disk capacity and historical access to packets. Provides up to 3x improved burst support, capture and storage.

Encryption

All data is automatically hardware-encrypted at rest using AES-256, to ensure a high level of data security.

Deep Buffering

Reduce costs by sizing your monitoring infrastructure deployment for average traffic rates, not for the traffic bursts or 1-second peaks which may be 10x or more above average.

Timestamp Precision

All Corvil appliances support PTP clock synhronisation for precision packet and message time stamping, including when integrated with aggregation tap infrastructure.
