Rapidly expanding connectivity requirements to meet new trading regulations worldwide and the need for robust business continuity planning (BCP) are among the major forces behind IPC’s continued revenue growth in its Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) solutions – part of IPC’s portfolio of Voice Connectivity Services. EVS is a SIP-based BCP voice service developed specifically for the global capital markets. The solution enables uninterrupted delivery of trader voice services to a single or multiple trading floors and facilitates interoperability with existing services at trading counterparties.
“Increased demand for voice connectivity services is not surprising given firms’ unrelenting focus on compliance,” said CEB TowerGroup Research Director Gert Raeves. “Any firm expecting to survive and succeed in the new trading environment needs to invest in robust connectivity to counterparties, liquidity venues and trade lifecycle services.”
“We focus exclusively on the capital markets and continue to invest heavily in our connectivity and communications solutions,” said David Brown, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Financial Markets Network, IPC. ”This makes IPC’s solutions a top choice for the trading communication and business continuity needs of financial market participants.”
“Leading capital market firms have selected IPC’s EVS solution to deploy agile and cost-effective business continuity and disaster recovery strategies,” said Joe Pickel, Global Head of Sales and Marketing, Financial Markets Network, IPC. “Currently, with an expansive global network that connects 200,000 traders in more than 5,000 locations in 60 countries, IPC’s Voice Connectivity Services enable capital market participants to connect to counterparties and liquidity venues around the world.”
