IPC Systems, Inc. Key Developments

IPC Systems and Nectar Collaborate to Deliver Advanced Monitoring Services

IPC Systems, Inc. announced a strategic alliance with Nectar Services Corp. IPC will deliver monitoring services using Nectar's platform with capabilities exclusive to IPC designed to help financial services firms meet evolving compliance requirements, maximize productivity and efficiently deliver on their service commitments. Nectar's Converged Management Platform(CMP) combined with IPC's 24/7/365 Enhanced Services central service desk and engineering support creates a monitoring service optimized for the challenges of delivering trader voice services on a shared IP network. The Nectar platform provides a comprehensive real time view of all service elements and their interdependencies. While proactive polling helps detect hidden issues before they become incidents, IPC's Enhanced Services global team of industry experts analyze, diagnose and remediate incidents according to ITIL best practices for service delivery. To enhance the IPC service offering, Nectar is developing modules specific to IPC's trading platforms and unique compliance capabilities to enable firms to better verify that calls were recorded. The modules for IPC trading platforms have been designed to deliver in depth information about the environment and its relationship to other technologies within the trading floor eco-system. IPC's global customer support team will proactively monitor the voice recording, voice trading system and IPT voice infrastructure under a unified management structure with the tools essential to pinpoint the root cause of issues with systems, hardware or network elements. Deployment of IPC's service enables financial services firms to reduce risks cost effectively by early detection of potential problems that can be diagnosed and resolved before they become business effecting incidents.
