IPC Systems, a leading provider of indispensible trading communications solutions to the world's top financial services firms and global enterprises, today announced the service availability of its Session Initiation Protocol (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.
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.
IPC's new EVS service enhancements in Tokyo represents further investment in the Asia-Pacific marketplace and underscores IPC's commitment to deliver trader productivity and drive operational efficiencies throughout the region including other financial centers in Singapore, Hong Kong and Sydney. This launch follows the company's recent announcement regarding the expansion of its high-speed network across Asia-Pacific.
"The introduction of EVS in Tokyo is a significant part of our broader deployment plans for launching advanced technology solutions in the region," said Mark Curran, vice president, Network Service Operations. "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."
