"The crew continued their normal duties and used the shared broadband link without being affected by the Market Data testing.
"The Sea Tel VSAT system, fitted to the yacht and the Market Data vendors we tested other than Thomson Reuters also proved to work efficiently and provided very light Bandwidth usage figures (max 200kb/s), with no loss of connectivity or features, during the testing period.
"Some additional tests were also performed during the time onboard Slipstream and in some pretty rough sea conditions, using Apple MacBook Air with Oracle VirtualBox, (desktop virtualisation) making the results even more impressive!"
Now, after the test's successful completion and with deep benchmarks planned, a new opportunity is available for other trading technology solutions and vendors to 'get onboard!'The future looks interesting, as other existing trading technology solutions and vendors can adapt their products to utilise Fixed Land Site, or Satellite Broadband + Private Leased Line solutions in the Mega yacht sector. Large privately owned motor yachts and charter guests or Banking Institutions, can now request access to full Professional Trading production versions, for retrieval of real time Market Data and manipulate positions in realtime, whilst at sea. For the Time being 'Step outside for Summer !' Trade Outside(TM)....Sea, Land or Air; Trade like the office but without restriction and follow the sun.
