IPC extends Voice and Electronic Connectivity Services (ECS) direct to Moscow and across Russia

IPC Systems the provider of voice and electronic trading communications solutions has announced the extension of its Voice and Electronic Connectivity Services (ECS) direct to Moscow and across Russia.

IPC, in conjunction with its strategic local partners Statel and Cable&Wireless Worldwide, have built a network platform to provide its suite of trader voice and electronic connectivity services to Russian trading firms.

"As a network provider of mission critical communications, C&W Worldwide is committed to supporting IPC and its financial sector customers in Russia with our world-class low latency network solutions which are tailored to serve the needs of our financial services customers," says Darren Webb, Director, Enterprise - Global Markets, C&W Worldwide.

"Along with Turkey, the UAE and South Africa, Russia represents one of the fastest emerging and highest performing markets in EMEA," said Richard Petrie, VP of Network Operations EMEA for IPC Systems. "We've been planning this upgrade into Moscow for some time now after requests from many of our global customers for a faster route. We've also worked hard to secure the right partners in the region to offer in-country support and optimum service reliability - Statel and C&W Worldwide fit this bill perfectly."
