JERSEY CITY, N.J., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/ --

  IPC and 2Connect Collaboration Enables Direct Connectivity Between Leading 

          Financial Centers in Manama, Dubai, Europe and Asia Pacific

    IPC Systems, the leading provider of indispensable communications solutions to financial services firms,

today announced that it has expanded its global network coverage through a partnership with 2Connect

Bahrain. This partnership dramatically reduces the installation time to connect Bahrain with trading venues

across Europe and Asia-Pacific. Today's news follows IPC's recent announcement of the expansion of its

Enterprise Voice Service (EVS) in Hong Kong and Singapore and completion of multiple network capacity

upgrades worldwide.

    Underscoring IPC's commitment to servicing the needs of its global customer-base, IPC partnered with

2Connect Bahrain, a leading telecommunications service provider that offers an innovative portfolio of voice

advantage of the network and expertise of 2Connect to deliver its services effectively and reliably to financial

services firms based in Bahrain and the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). This investment in the network

infrastructure technology will provide IPC's customers the most efficient connection highway to reach clients

and execution venues across this region.

    The new partnership will provide IPC's customers in the region access to IPC's global network platform,

ensuring fast, secure, reliable access to a community of more than 3,600 on-net financial sites worldwide.

Firms in the region can leverage IPC's on-net community to connect more rapidly to trading partners in the

Middle East across a resilient and diverse network dedicated to traders. The presence in Bahrain and the

relationship with 2Connect increases IPC's global network presence and provides direct connectivity to an

increasingly important and growing market-moving financial center.

    "With a focus on the needs of our customer-base, IPC continues to invest in its network to provide access to

the global financial services community, resilient connectivity and scalable capacity our customers depend

on," said Mathew Whitmore, Program Manager for IPC Network Services Operations. "The working

partnership between IPC and 2Connect Bahrain is another important step in supporting financial service firms

to compete effectively in the modern market place."

resiliency and quality of service for IPC and their clients," said Rick Hillson, vice president, Customer

Operations, 2Connect. "We're committed to the partnership with IPC and to support their expansion into

Bahrain and the GCC region."

    The connectivity in Bahrain will form part of a Middle Eastern hub connecting Europe and Asia with an ultra-

resilient, secure global financial network supported by IPC's unmatched 24/7/365 proactive service
