Trading solutions provider IPC Systems is expanding its Asian offerings in Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo.
Using Equinix’s International Business Exchange data centers, IPC is planning to tap the growing demand for smarter and faster trading in key financial centres in Asia-Pacific.
“The APAC region is a key area of growth for the capital markets and IPC is committed to providing industry leading, value-added network solutions for traders in a reliable and secure environment,” said David Dodd, senior vice president, Asia Pacific, IPC. “By deploying our Financial Markets Network service inside Equinix’s data centres, we can connect to more than 450 buy- and sell-side firms and over 75 trading venues in the world’s top 16 financial markets, allowing us to provide faster, smarter and more secure services for our customers in Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo.”
IPC will offer Equinix customers access to the firm’s Financial Markets Network services, including IPC’s financial extranet Connexus, its Direct Connect data service and managed VPN services, letting members globally access trade lifecycle services and market data through a single connection or establish point-to-point ethernet connections to securely link multiple geographically-dispersed locations to create a private network.
“Equinix customers in these markets can expect to see improved performance and new market opportunities through direct interconnection between members of Equinix’s established ecosystems as well as a consistent and premium customer experience,” said David Wilkinson, senior director, business development, financial services, Equinix Asia-Pacific.
IPC and Equinix have worked together in Asia-Pacific since 2007 and have since expanded their relationship in North America and Europe.
