IPC Systems, a leading provider of trading communications solutions to the world's top financial services firms, today announced the launch of a new express trading route between New York and Toronto.

The round-trip latency speed provides trading firms with dedicated and express access to multiple liquidity venues and exchanges.

The opening of the new express route will link existing points-of-presence (POPs) between key trading locations across New York, Toronto and Chicago. Market participants can connect to their trading engines over a low latency route, an enhancement that is part of a long term strategic plan to deliver the optimum trading network to connect brokerages, investment firms, money managers, market makers and execution venues globally.

Recently, IPC upgraded its Toronto ring, which directly connects three IPC trading locations across New York, Toronto and Chicago via a high-speed, fully restorable dense wavelength division multiplexing (DSDM) network. The upgraded infrastructure provides a direct gateway to the robust Toronto equities market for both New York and Chicago market participants. The launch of the express route is part of IPC's continued commitment to the Toronto market, enabling customers to take advantage of the region's multi-market structure of exchanges and alternative trading systems.

"Trading in today's marketplace requires express connectivity to allow customers to transact faster, across heavily traded hubs. By decreasing critical milliseconds off the New York to Toronto route, customers in both regions can take advantage of direct market access to multiple trading venues," said Lou Marchese, IPC Vice President of Network Operations Americas Systems. "IPC sees significant growth opportunities in the Canadian equities, derivatives and energy markets, and we are pleased to provide our customers a clear competitive advantage."
