In the past Electronic Trading firms have had very little say in the options available for their network choices. They were beholden to a large Carrier or an Electronic Trading Extranet provider and neither was as latency focused that is required by this industry. The Carrier has a network footprint that is not optimized for Electronic Trading, but optimized for the legacy voice services; and a trading platform provider is utilizing that legacy network to maximize their network efficiencies. When you require low latency, a legacy voice backbone network cannot make that happen. CFN Services has turned that model upside down by creating circuits specific for the Electronic Trading space. By utilizing optimal spans from multiple carriers, CFN is able to create specific routes specifically focused on latency. CFN Services is able to provide customized networks for those firms that require a higher-level network optimization to reach their low latency goals. CFN has also developed turnkey networks to the top Global trading exchanges in Chicago, New York, Boston, Toronto, London, Frankfurt, Paris, Tokyo, and Hong Kong.

 CFN Services Revolutionizes Low Latency Networking for Electronic Trading It
is
a
well‐known
fact,
that
faster
is
better
when
it
comes
to
many
things
in
the
world.
In
the
Electronic
Trading
 industry
being
first
in
the
queue
is
not
just
better,
it
can
mean
millions
of
dollars
uplift.

When
millions
are
at
stake,
 every
aspect
of
the
equation
needs
to
be
evaluated.
CFN
Services
is
now
providing
Electronic
Traders
a
new
aspect
to
 their
low
latency
goal.
In
the
race
to
Alpha,
there
is
a
new
variable
in
the
mix.

 
 In
the
past
Electronic
Trading
firms
have
had
very
little
say
in
the
options
available
for
 their
network
choices.

They
were
beholden
to
a
large
Carrier
or
an
Electronic
Trading
 Extranet
provider
and
neither
was
as
latency
focused
that
is
required
by
this
industry.

 The
Carrier
has
a
network
footprint
that
is
not
optimized
for
Electronic
Trading,
but
 optimized
for
the
legacy
voice
services;
and
a
trading
platform
provider
is
utilizing
 that
legacy
network
to
maximize
their
network
efficiencies.
When
you
require
low
 latency,
a
legacy
voice
backbone
network
cannot
make
that
happen.
CFN
Services
has
 turned
that
model
upside
down
by
creating
circuits
specific
for
the
Electronic
Trading
 space.
By
utilizing
optimal
spans
from
multiple
carriers,
CFN
is
able
to
create
specific
routes
specifically
focused
on
 latency.
CFN
Services
is
able
to
provide
customized
networks
for
those
firms
that
require
a
higher‐level
network
 optimization
to
reach
their
low
latency
goals.
CFN
has
also
developed
turnkey
networks
to
the
top
Global
trading
 exchanges
in
Chicago,
New
York,
Boston,
Toronto,
London,
Frankfurt,
Paris,
Tokyo,
and
Hong
Kong.

 In
addition,
Service
Level
Agreement
(SLA)
has
a
new
meaning
thanks
to
CFN
Services.
In
the
Trading
World
 microseconds
can
mean
missed
opportunities
for
additional
profits
worth
millions
of
dollars.
A
SLA
should
be
for
the
 exact
latency
that
is
quoted
for
that
circuit,
not
a
microsecond
higher.

CFN
Services
is
the
only
provider
who
offers
a
 SLA
specifically
for
the
true
Performance
Latency
on
the
route
provided
to
the
customer.
The
SLA
is
not
a
marked
up
 number,
but
it
is
the
exact
latency
on
that
was
quoted
in
a
service
order.
For
example;
a
contract
was
signed
for
15.9
 latency
between
two
locations
with
CFN
Services,
they
will
provide
a
written
Service
Level
Agreement
at
that
exact
 latency.
To
date
no
customer
has
had
to
exercise
the
SLA
outage
clause
in
their
agreement
with
CFN
due
to
a
lack
of
 performance
of
CFN
Services.
 When
does
a
customer
get
to
sign
up
for
a
product
with
a
guarantee
that
the
product
will
get
better
with
time?
Only
 with
CFN
Services
does
that
type
of
relationship
exist.
The
best
latency
today
is
not
guaranteed
to
be
the
best
in
6
or
 12
months.
How
many
times
have
you
been
tied
into
a
long
contract
with
a
latency
that
is
no
longer
a
differentiator
 and
now
everyone
else
has
caught
up?
CFN
Services
has
changed
expectations
of
their
platform
provider
by
providing
 a
Latency
Improvement
Plan
