IPC picks BTI Systems to support its financial trading platform

Lightwave Staff

BTI Systems, Inc. says that IPC Systems Inc., a provider of telecom services to the financial industry, is deploying the BTI 7800 Series 100G converged optical networking system to increase performance and scalability between major hubs in metro regions.

IPC provides mission-critical communications products and services supported by high-performance, robust, and stable network capabilities. IPC will deploy the BTI 7800 in its metro networks and primary points of presence (PoPs) in regions with major financial centers.

"Our primary goal is to provide our customers with the sophisticated technology and expertise that drives a competitive advantage in every stage of the trading lifecycle," said IPC's vice president of global engineering, Tim Carmody. "To do so, we evaluate choices for our network very carefully. We have previously collaborated with BTI Systems and successfully optimized our network by globally deploying their platforms for metro networking and low latency Ethernet business services. With our demands escalating daily, we needed to scale to 100G in our major metro networks and determined that BTI offered a preferable solution that enables us to increase performance, capacity, and scalability while at the same time, significantly reducing operational complexity of our metro network. BTI also offered a clear migration path to optimizing label-switch routing [LSR]."

The growth in bandwidth-intensive applications coupled with the migration from local compute/storage models to cloud-based services is driving the need for high-bandwidth interconnection with lower cost per gigabit, higher port and interface efficiency, and reduced operating costs. BTI says its 7800 Series platform provides large-scale 10-Gbps to 100-Gbps wavelength capacities in a small footprint for cloud networking, data center interconnect, and metro networking environments. By leveraging BTI's 100G coherent capabilities, IPC will increase network capacity significantly, gain 10X spectral efficiency, and reduce space, power, and cooling costs.

In addition, IPC will be able to efficiently manage and control the BTI 7800 Series as well as the existing BTI 7000 Series and BTI 800 Series products that it has already deployed throughout the US, Europe, and Asia as a fully integrated system using the BTI proNX management and control software.

Next week, IPC's Carmody will be joining BTI's director of solutions marketing, Eve Griliches on a panel at the Lightwave Optical Innovation Summit, which will take place at the Renaissance Austin Hotel in Austin, Texas. The panel, titled "Is it Time to Consider Building Your Own Network?" will be moderated by Griliches and will take place on Tuesday, July 15 at 10:00 a.m. CDT. Carmody will be joined on the panel by industry experts from XKL and Allied Fiber.
