A10 launches Thunder 3745

For businesses where fractions of a second matter and low latency equals cost-efficiency, A10 Networks broadened its Thunder Series portfolio of hardware appliances to include A10 Thunder 3745, a new application delivery controller designed specifically for financial institutions and low latency environments.

Financial institutions have specific application delivery needs, especially those that deal in latency-sensitive transactions and high-frequency trading (HFT), where time truly is money and any delay can negatively affect profitability.

In the financial world, fractions of a second matter. Sluggish infrastructure and poor application performance can make the difference between material gains and losses. This puts intense pressure on financial institutions and HFT environments to process transactions at high rates of speed with low latency and jitter.


A10 Thunder 3745 for low latency

  • Mean Latency: 2-3 µs, Max Latency: 4 µs, Jitter: 1 µs, concurrent NAT translations: 128,000
  • Specification highlights: SPE with FPGA, 1 RU, xx1GbE, 4x10GbE, 6 cores
  • Feature highlights: DPI, L7 traffic steering, header insertion, ACLs, High-scale dual NAT

Thunder 3745 improves transaction speed by reducing end-to-end latency while improving scale and enhancing security and resiliency. It is ideal for mission critical applications that demand very low latency and low jitter, such as those operating on the Financial Information eXchange (FIX) protocol or other industry protocols.
