Our Story

Founded as CSX Fiber Networks (then renamed CFN Services) in 2005, we pioneered the development of high-performance networks that created the shortest and lowest-latency paths between major financial exchanges. CFN shifted the market’s view on low-latency networks and dedicated infrastructure for high frequency trading. Today, this infrastructure supports more than half of the world’s most sophisticated capital markets participants and is the foundation of CFN’s Alpha Platform, the first globally distributed, high-performance trading platform for electronic trading.

Since our formation, we have expanded our infrastructure and high-performance network solutions to develop the World’s fastest and most connected application delivery platform. With that expansion came a new name.

Apcela is now leading the industry, speeding access to cutting-edge network technologies and high-performance application delivery for global markets.
