Alliance MX Maximizes Trading Communications
The Alliance MX system is IPC’s core platform for trading system applications – designed and built specifically for the mission-critical and demanding environment of the trading floor. Alliance MX’s “mesh” switching architecture creates the resiliency and reliability on which our financial markets customers depend. At the same time, Alliance MX’s integrated support for IP standards, replicated databases, and network management tools creates a services-oriented architecture on which ride enterprise voice and electronic trading applications. These applications enhance your traders’ productivity and create unparalleled support for Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery (BCP/DR).
IPC’s commitment to reliability and resiliency of our systems is unmatched. Alliance MX is designed for resiliency, starting with its unique mesh architecture (which makes complete system failures virtually impossible). Alliance MX also supports multiple station cards per turret, dual power supplies and redundant AC power.
Optional software such as EASe
