IPCâs Ethernet Connection Service is designed specifically for electronic trading while still adhering to industry standards. Trading firms can select from a wide range of scalable Ethernet private lines (1MB to 100MB). Bandwidth is dedicated across IPCâs global network, ensuring secure and extremely low-latency connections. Point-to-point and point-to-multi-point Ethernet service offers firms a 24x7 managed solution to connect with exchanges, ECNs and the worldâs largest On-Net trading community. The ECS service greatly simplifies how inter-dealer brokers, market makers, exchanges and algorithmic trading firms get connected to the global capital markets and their primary trading partners. IPC is a member of the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), an organization that promotes standards and interoperability of Ethernet Services between service providers and technology vendors.
