For low-latency traders, every nanosecond counts. The Exchange Matching Engine is the point at which your trade is matched and your order is filled, and is the generation point for the price messages that travel back up through all of the above layers. The distance between the Exchange Matching Engine and your Execution platform should be as short as possible. By optimizing each of the five layers above this one, you help ensure that your trade messages travel the shortest path possible and maximize the potential of you doing a trade at the best possible price.
