CFN Services drives out network latency with Cyan

CFN, a managed service provider that prides itself on delivering ultra low-latency services, has deployed Cyan's Z-Series as it expands its presence in the Frankfurt and London financial markets.

Similar to other carriers targeting the financial market segment, CFN has seen a growing demand for ultra low latency 10 Gbps Ethernet transport between European's major financial markets.

Wil Tirado, VP of Network Engineering of CFN Services, said it has seen its "traffic capacity demands grow 300 percent" over the past two years. But CFN did not have to make a major network investment to deploy the Cyan gear. Instead of having to deploy multiple single fibers, Cyan's Z-Series, which incorporates a plug-in module DWDM expansion, allows CFN to deliver multiple 10 GbE transports per fiber.

Providing low latency network services has become the talk of the town amongst service providers lately, and CFN's enhancement of its network is another proof point of that trend. Joining CFN in the financial network services drive are a host of competitive (Intellifiber, Level 3, Optimum Lightpath, RCN Metro and XO Communications) and incumbent carriers (Verizon).
