For the first and largest defect (Figure 5) one can notice a certain presence at around 26 microseconds. For the second and smaller one (Figure 6), the detection signals are corrupted with false alarm echoes, and thus the consistency analysis is absolutely crucial in determining the presence and location of the defects.
While this did make the data centers more secure, and greatly lowered rental costs, this move increased the distance between the HFT computers and the trading systems on Wall Street, sometimes adding hundreds of microseconds to each round trip.
