Olympics Streaming: 2 Percent of Prime Time Evening Internet Usage

We spotted this interesting stat today:

“The network analysis firm Sandvine measured Olympics streaming on NBC from a single day, Aug. 10, from a single broadband provider it declined to name. Overall, Olympics streaming accounted for about 2 percent of prime time evening Internet usage, according to Sandvine.

Here’s what Sandvine found overall: Mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets, accounted for almost 20 percent of the evening’s Olympics stream. An additional 17 percent went to set-top boxes, such as Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV. Of these, Roku boxes were the overwhelming favorite among Olympics viewers, eating up a 10 percent share.

In the end, however, PCs took the prize, accounting for more than 60 percent of that night’s consumption, Sandvine reported.”

‘Affordable’: 100 Units A Month At Around $20,000 A Pop. What?

Well we couldn’t guess this one – we spotted this stat today –

“Australian company Metamako’s network switch is able to route incoming information through to trading servers in just four nanoseconds, and can lower the time it takes to execute a full trade—from the time it receives market information from a stock exchange to the time it sends out a “buy” or “sell” order—to just 85 nanoseconds, nearly three times faster than Cisco’s general-purpose networking switch.

The lightning-fast gear is just one link in the high-speed trading chain, of course. Servers have to parse incoming information, make a decision, and send the order back to the switch, before it heads along super-fast cables to an exchange. But Metamako’s hardware highlights the lengths that traders are willing to go to lower the “latency” of every component in their setup. The company figures it sells about 100 units a month at around $20,000 a pop—according to the Wall Street Journal’s piece on the company, that’s pretty affordable compared to many of the components in a high-speed trading rig.”
