Good evening. It is an honor for me to host IPC’s Network Launch reception on behalf of the many dedicated IPC employees and partners in Russia and around the world who are responsible for the company’s success.
At IPC, we truly appreciate and value our customers and partners. Your passion for succeeding in the Russian financial markets, combined with our commitment to your total satisfaction, enables our mutual success. In that spirit, we have organized today’s customer appreciation event at this iconic venue in Moscow, one of the world’s great capitals and financial centers.
IPC provides global market participants with connectivity throughout the trade lifecycle and on demand access to one of the world’s largest financial ecosystems that has over 6000 locations across 700 cities in more than 60 countries. Today, we mark an important milestone for IPC. We are delighted to announce our enhanced network capabilities in Russia. IPC’s points-of-presence (PoPs) in Moscow have been enhanced to support all of our solutions including our flagship extranet service, latency sensitive managed Ethernet service and MPLS corporate WAN solution. We are offering resilient, low latency connectivity from major global financial centers to IPC’s major Moscow POPs at DataSpace, M1 and M9. As a result, IPC is uniquely positioned to deliver a comprehensive product portfolio and solution set that is performance engineered to fulfill the growing demands of both Russian and global capital market participants.
