Offering market participants connectivity, market access and proximity hosting in more than 70 financial data centers and exchange locations across North and South America, Europe and Asia, the Alpha Platform provides market participants simple, affordable access to over 120 equity, derivatives, fixed income and foreign exchange liquidity pools worldwide.  The Alpha Platform is the market’s most agile, scalable and cost-effective low latency platform, built on the same infrastructure that provides accelerated, ultra-low latency market data delivery and trade execution for some of the world’s most sophisticated high frequency trading firms.

The 2014 Buy-Side Technology Awards recognize the leading technologies and vendors in their area of expertise, through an auditable and transparent methodology underpinned by the input and experience of seven judges – five buy-side-focused technology consultants and two of Buy-Side Technology’s editors.  The “Best Buy-Side Low-Latency Trading Network” category in which CFN was recognized focuses on the underlying trading architecture and network, as opposed to the applications running in that environment.
