/PRNewswire/ -- IPC Systems, Inc., a
leading provider of voice and electronic trading communications solutions to
the world's top financial services firms, today announced a strategic
partnership with Acme Packet, a leader in session delivery network solutions, to
extend the value of IPC's Unigy platform more broadly across the enterprise.
Partnering with Acme Packet enhances IPC's SIP based Unified Trading
Communications platform to deliver applications across all users in the trading
workflow, regardless of the communications device being used. With this
integration, trading floors can enhance the productivity of all users in the trade
workflow, increase business agility, simplify legacy IP telephony infrastructures,
and better control costs.
"IPC's Unigy is a revolutionary platform for today's trading floor, helping to
extend critical communications across all offices and systems within the
enterprise," said Dino Di Palma, chief operating officer, Acme Packet. "Our
application enablement technology enables customers to centralize the
infrastructure and management resources, putting IT managers in control of
complex communications and applications architectures."
By partnering with Acme Packet IPC will have the ability to extend Unigy's
native Session Management and application capabilities more broadly across
an enterprise, expanding from its trading turrets to traditional telephony
systems. Unigy's applications leverage IPC's Blue Wave Application
development platform, which also allows customers and third party developers
to create communications-enabled applications that manage and optimize
trading workflows.
"Combining Acme Packet's solution and the power of Unigy allows us to provide
customers with a unique enterprise-wide solution that can help improve
efficiency and reduce costs," said Mark Miller, vice president, product
management for IPC. "In addition, by extending Unigy-based applications to
traditional telephony such as PBXs, we can help customers have greater control
over communications and, in turn, allow them to more easily comply with
increasingly complex regulations governing who can talk to who within trading
firms."
IPC's Unigy is the industry's first single, open standards Software Oriented
Architecture (SOA) based platform for unified trading communications and
applications. The key benefits Unigy offers are:
Collaboration - simplifying and accelerating collaboration between traders and their
middle and back office trade support teams so deals can get done faster
Session Management - providing customers with the tools they need to manage
communications, control access and meet compliance requirements
Exclusive apps - enabling customers and third-parties to develop proprietary
applications, on demand, to streamline processes and gain a competitive advantage
Management - dramatically improving communications system management,
monitoring, and operations with the new Unigy Management System for greater
flexibility, scalability and uptime
Lower costs – by providing more affordable, built-in business continuity options, lower
energy consumption and smaller rack footprint, and more efficient use of IT resources.
