Their demanding trading environment requires a robust and scalable solution that can handle increasingly large trading volumes.

Aaron Scamehorn, Chief Technology Officer for Cognitive Capital comments: "In CameronFIX we found a good market solution with solid performance that has helped grow our business since 2009. After recently putting Cameron's latest product Catalys to the test, we were so impressed with its latency-shaving performance we decided to migrate."

"Catalys is a natural evolution for financial firms that need the best performance metrics, as well as anyone with a FIX ecosystem," says Anders Henriksson, CEO, CameronTec. "The multiple, complementary modules of Catalys represent the outcome of the continuous work we do to improve the standard in FIX infrastructure and to provide markets with cutting edge innovation for which we are renowned."
