Jan 17, 2013 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --
Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EQIX) said that IPC Systems, Inc. will deploy in Equinix's International Business ExchangeTM data centers in Sydney, Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo to offer innovative trading communication solutions to address the growing demand for smarter and faster trading in key financial centers in Asia-Pacific.
IPC is a provider of trading communications solutions to the world's top financial services firms. By leveraging Platform Equinix, IPC will be able to offer Equinix customers access to its portfolio of Financial Markets Network services which include Connexus, IPC's financial extranet, Direct Connect data service and managed VPN services. This combination of services brings together a global community of capital market participants where members can securely and rapidly access trade lifecycle services and market data through a single connection or establish point-to-point ethernet connections that securely link multiple geographically dispersed locations to create a private network.
Equinix data centers are home to the world's largest financial services ecosystem. Customers within Equinix have the ability to physically connect and optimize trades, reducing latency and ultimately saving time and money. This interconnection enables trading to happen in a closed environment rather than over the open Internet, adding an extra layer of security.
IPC and Equinix have worked together in Asia-Pacific since 2007 and have since expanded their relationship in North America and Europe.
Equinix connects more than 4,000 companies directly to their customers and partners inside the world's most networked data centers. Today, businesses leverage the Equinix interconnection platform in 31 strategic markets across the Americas, EMEA and Asia-Pacific. www.equinix.com.
