IPC Systems, a leading provider of voice and electronic trading communications solutions to the world's top financial services firms, today announced the upgrade of its network infrastructure as part of its continued rapid expansion in the Asia-Pacific region.
Built specifically to meet Taiwan's rigorous requirements for resilient connectivity and robust disaster recovery capabilities, the upgrade adds more routes and capacity for capital market participants.
IPC has designed the network to ensure business continuity and provide traders with the flexibility and mobility they need to best compete in Taiwan's highly dynamic markets. To satisfy the demand from market participants across the Asia Pacific Region for high-speed and reliable access, IPC is providing digital connectivity into the national financial capital of Taipei. The benefits include increased speed of delivery and enhanced quality.
Connectivity is provided through the Financial Markets Network via a system of multiple underwater cable routes connecting both Singapore and Hong Kong directly into Taipei. The network has been designed to ensure the highest levels of performance and has self-healing functions capable of restoring themselves automatically with their ring configuration when a failure occurs in a part of the system. The network was designed in conjunction with regional carriers to ensure optimal performance.
"Our local presence, strong business partnerships and long standing relationships with regional carriers have all contributed to the success of our customers in Taiwan." said Mark Curran, vice president, Asia-Pacific Network Operations, IPC Systems. "This kind of local knowledge and presence was invaluable for the successful execution of this upgrade."
With the completion of this upgrade, IPC continues to expand its network capacity while meeting the rigorous performance needs and latency requirements that enable financial firms in the region to compete globally and grow. The IPC Financial Markets Network is an expansive global network that is designed for voice and electronic trading and caters exclusively to the exacting demands of capital market participants. It supports and connects over 200,000 traders worldwide by reaching virtually every trading destination around the globe.
