EPAM B2BITS FIX Client Simulator (FCS) is a rich desktop UI application. It allows to simulate multiple FIX protocol-defined buy-side- and sell-side-oriented workflows. FCS combines the ability to enter and edit FIX messages in row format and via pre-defined forms. It allows to assemble and replay FIX messages in a highly automated fashion with automatic handling of sequence numbers and identities.

FCS is used in the following use cases :
•    OMS/EMS functional and stress testing
•    FIX protocol implementations
•    Errors reproducing

FCS covers all spectrum of FIX protocol versions and supports custom extensions and QuickFIX-formatted dictionaries.

FIXEdge is a C++ based application server providing FIX connectivity for standalone client applications and with performance profile suitable for the needs of all clients up to and including large sell-side institutions and large volume traders. Client applications communicate with FIXEdge through one of multiple transport protocols (e.g. Simple Sockets, JMS, IBM MQ) employing transport adaptors. It is designed to be as easy as possible to install, configure, administrate and monitor trading information flows. The FIXEdge product has been endorsed by many companies.

B2BITS has a proven experience in providing consulting services for top-tier financial services companies related to front-, middle- and back-office solutions including the ones for high-performance trading. As a result we have developed in-depth understanding of Capital Markets globally, have experience in all asset classes and all aspects of pre-trade, trade and post trade workflows.

B2BITS has been providing FIX on-boarding services to Capital Markets industry players for over a decade and today our world-class experts continue to deliver comprehensive and mature set of services backed with high-end automation tools and connectivity solutions to trading firms, brokerages, clearing houses, and exchanges. Scope of FIX on-boarding services cater for the need to accept clients for trading on order management and execution management platforms.

We created a scalable New Generation Ecosystem (NGE) to host FIX layer which takes advantage of the elasticity of dynamic infrastructure. By leveraging shared storage for preserving session states, the non-stop management of FIX sessions is achieved. Client session recovery by switching to another node takes only seconds.

Multiple instances of each service could be run; thus, no single point of failure exists in the system. The NGE provides a set of APIs to collect information about the platform state and performance, set parameters and control services. Main FIX Layer use cases such as Order Entry Gateway, Smart Order Router/Message Router, Market Data and Trade Capture/Drop Copy Servers can now be implemented in NGE.

Your feedback is highly appreciated.

The FIX Antenna Python (FA P) library is a wrapper built on top of FIX Antenna C++. It allows using a mature and highly performant FIX Antenna C++ in the Python ecosystem.
The Python-specific advantage: it is simpler to implement testing utilities and harnesses in Python than in C++. FIX Antenna Python developers can focus on business logic, leaving all the intricacies of FIX protocol session management to the library.

FIX Antenna .NET Core allows developers to work with the latest well supported Microsoft framework and help strategically position client’s applications for the future. The FIX Antenna .NET Core API follows robust, tested by time FIX Antenna Java API (API Reference).

The FIX Antenna . NET Core benefits include the ability to generate structured messages and to manipulate the message’s content via API. It is specifically designed to improve the productivity of .NET programmers even if they are novice FIX users.

FIX Antenna™ .NET provides native support of Microsoft .NET technologies including such benefits as: ability to manipulate messages with the use of class hierarchies, properties and namespaces, XML based documentation for all messages, and ability to generate structured messages. The engine uses FIX Antenna C++ as a core, which makes the code more reliable (the core has been proven on multiple platforms) and fast. As a result, FIX Antenna .NET provides reliability and speed of C++ and friendliness of public API from .NET. It also has broad feature set addressing variety of requirements to a FIX engine including rich UI to ease configuration management and providing real time monitoring and is pre-configured for and certified with multiple exchanges.

High-performance FIX Engine with its broad feature set addressing variety of requirements to a FIX engine including rich UI to ease configuration management and providing real time monitoring is an ideal solution for exchanges, sell sides and program trading operations. The engine is currently deployed in some of the most demanding environments in the world.

HFT Antenna is a low latency C++ FIX engine leveraging advantages of Linux features and best message routing practices to be optimized for stable deterministic latency for routing from multiple sessions to multiple sessions.

FIX Antenna™ Java key benefits include the following ones: runs everywhere, has small footprint, natively integrates with standard Java monitoring toolsets, can be used in enterprise environment and web-based solutions. The engine is equipped with rich UI to ease configuration management and providing real-time monitoring of session statuses and parameters. This allows maintaining consistent interface for all internal applications while dealing with many counterparties, cross asset class where different versions of the protocol are in use.

FIX Antenna SBE/FIXP is leveraging low latency C++ FIX Antenna HFT engine for stable deterministic latency.

Generic C++ code generator used to create parser for processing SBE message(s) template of a specific venue allows you to create low latency encoding and decoding modules. CME ILink3 order entry implementation of SBE/FIXP you can find here.

The session layer is customizable, support for FIX Performance Session Layer (FIXP) is added.

B2BITS’ FIX Drop Copy Solution (FIXDCap) allows retrieving drop copy of trades from FIX-compliant Drop copy sources. It is available in form of DLL or in form of application server pre-configured to work with various FIX/FIXML sources of drop copy information. Both DLL based and standalone solutions inherit and leverage all features of FIX Antenna and FIXEdge accordingly, including easy configuration, administration and monitoring. The process of capturing drop copies by server based FIXDCap is fully automated, while DLL FIXDCap can be easily integrated with client’s trading platform. In both cases all the specifics of the connectivity are completely encapsulated and hidden. In addition, the FIXDCap package includes recovery tools, which allow requesting missing data in case of failures.

FIXEdge Java (FEJ) is an application server providing FIX connectivity. Its unique internal architecture allows supporting balance between flexibility and high performance requirements. FEJ’s FIX sessions management mechanism is built on top of FIX Antenna Java and inherits most part of its functionality, including zero GC and strong optimization for low latency FIX messages processing.

B2BITS’ FIX Trade Capture Solution (FIXTCap) is a server application pre-configured to work with various FIX/FIXML/proprietary sources of post-trade information. FIXTCap design is based on B2BITS’ generic server FIXEdge extended with the Trade Capture adaptors. It inherits and leverages all FIXEdge features including easy configuration, administration and monitoring. The process of capturing trades and/or security definitions is fully automated, while all the specifics of the connectivity are completely encapsulated and hidden from the client.

FIXEye and FIXGrep are powerful next generation FIX log analyzers. These utilities are the result of many years of experience in FIX support. These log browsers go beyond traditional parsers and are equipped with full knowledge of FIX objects and their state management.

FIXopaedia is the fastest, most comprehensive and feature rich FIX reference source available.
