A leading provider of financial trading communications solutions, IPC (News - Alert) is headquartered in Jersey City, N.J., but has a presence throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia-Pacific regions. Some of the world's top financial services firms and global enterprises in more than 60 countries rely on IPC’s suite of products and enhanced services that includes advanced Voice-over-IP technology and integrated network and 24x7x365 management services. Now the company is introducing its Session Initiation Protocol (News - Alert) (SIP)-based Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) for the Tokyo market.
The addition of EVS will offer Tokyo-based trading firms uninterrupted delivery of trader voice services to a single or multiple trading floors, and facilitates interoperability with existing services at trading counterparties.
The uninterrupted voice trading communication is the central to the EVS implementation drive. By implementing EVS, IPC's customers in Tokyo can take advantage of resilient delivery options to a single site and simultaneous circuit presentation to multiple sites to meet business continuity planning and disaster recovery connectivity requirements, and provide the traders in their firms uninterrupted, always-on voice trading communications. Delivered across IPC's intelligent global network, this service offering provides IP-based Automatic Ring Down (ARD), Open Wire/Hoot & Holler and Manual Ring Down (MRD) services that are engineered for superior quality, security and rapid availability.
The IPC initiative at enhancing voice service with the integration of EVS is completely in sync with its recent announcements regarding its expansion of high-speed network across in the APAC region. According to IPC, the company is focused on enhancing trader productivity and driving operational efficiencies throughout the region including other financial centers in Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney.
It is worth mentioning that IPC's financial network comprises 4,000 global trading firms, vendors and venues and links 200 cities in 60 countries across six continents. With a global reach IPC is able to connect thousands of financial market trading participants into a single community linked by the company's secure private network. Additionally, IPC 's Global Solutions Operations Center allows the customers to proactively monitor the network 24x7x365, ensuring availability and reliability.
“The introduction of EVS in Tokyo is a significant part of our broader deployment plans for launching advanced technology solutions in the region. With the deployment of EVS in Tokyo, we are able to help our customers throughout the region achieve maximum business advantage by supplying and managing a suite of resilient and scalable communications that enables them to compete in today's local and international marketplace,” Mark Curran, one of the vice presidents at Network Service Operations, noted.
