Their offerings will enable us to provide our customer base with highly secure and reliable access into key Asian markets," says David Brown, senior vice president and managing director, Financial Markets Network at IPC.
IPC's Financial Markets Network houses Connexus Financial Extranet, MPLS WAN data services and other voice connectivity services. With direct access to more than 6000 market locations around the world, the company's partnership with Superloop aims to strengthen data networks for its partners and customers.
