New York, NY and Jakarta, Indonesia – April 28, 2016 – IPC Systems, Inc., a leading global provider of specialized communications and managed network-as-a-service (MNaaS) solutions for the financial trading community, today announced it continues to expand its financial marketplace in the ASEAN region with the addition of Bursa Efek Indonesia (IDX) to the IPC Financial Markets Network (FMN).

It cites positively to global institutional investors having greater options to connect to IDX.
