CLSA Asia-Pacific Markets, a Hong Kong-based subsidiary of Credit Lyonnais, has contracted with IPC Information Systems for the installation and management of a Voice over IP (VoIP) communications network covering dealing sites across 11 markets.
The VoIP network will be rolled out across new and existing sites in Hong Kong, London, New York, Singapore, Taipei, Bangkok, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Beijing and Mumbai.
CLSA traders will use IPC's IQ/MAX, which was launched in March of this year.
IPC says CLSA will also benefit from its EHI (enterprise, hoot and intercom) package which offers connectivity options to off-floor personnel, while its proactive monitoring and management service, AFM (Advanced Fault Management), delivers real-time visibility of the trading infrastructure.
Stephen Phillips, IPC managing director of Asia, says: "The decision by CLSA to globally consolidate their trading room requirements with IPC is a huge endorsement of our investment and focus on solutions for the trading floor."
