Interxion to host IPC Electronic Connectivity Services infrastructure in London and Vienna to continue to position IPC customers at the heart of European financial markets

LONDON and JERSEY CITY, New Jersey, September 14, 2010 - Interxion, a leading European provider of carrier-neutral colocation data
centre services, and IPC, a leading provider of indispensable trading
communications solutions to the world's top financial services firms and
global enterprises, have announced that IPC will locate its core Electronic
Connectivity Services (ECS) infrastructure at Interxion's Financial Hubs
located in London and Vienna. IPC's expanded presence in Europe will
strengthen the company's capability to support growing demand for its
portfolio of Electronic Connectivity Services, and will help position its
customers at the heart of Europe's financial markets.

IPC's private and secure network connects more than 200 cities across six
continents, connecting thousands of financial market participants worldwide.
The network has built-in resiliency for the highest levels of service
availability and low-latency performance, and provides an ideal connectivity
option for Interxion's customers. IPC's ECS offering provides liquidity and
execution access for an increasingly broad range of asset classes and venues,
making the company a logical choice for market participants looking for
connectivity to the financial markets.

Interxion's Financial Hubs are strategically located to provide some of
the lowest possible latencies to Europe's leading liquidity venues of any
carrier-neutral colocation provider. Interxion houses an extensive community
of exchanges, Multilateral Trading Facilities (MTF), sell-side and buy-side
firms, market data vendors, clearing houses as well as technology and
connectivity vendors, affording them cost-effective low-latency connections
and high-availability infrastructure. This gives market participants the
flexibility to be able to quickly and efficiently change trading strategies
when required.

European customer base, and it makes sense for us to work with Interxion - a
colocation data centre services provider with a pan-European footprint that
can provide our customers with close proximity to all the major European
markets," added Bryan Clarke, manager, Carrier and Exchange Relationships
EMEA, IPC. "Because we are 100 percent focused on serving financial markets,
we have been able to engineer our ECS platform from the ground up to support
the specialised needs of our financial customers. Working with Interxion
allows us to significantly strengthen our offerings for European firms by
serving as a high-speed gateway to both current and emerging markets in
London. The fact we now also have a presence in Vienna means we can give our
customers greater access to new market opportunities in Eastern Europe and

cements Interxion's position as one of the leading providers of colocation
data centre facilities in Europe. Our objective is to provide our customers
with real choice and flexibility through a growing range of low latency
connectivity options to liquidity venues and access to a broad range of
financial services in our data centres," commented Anthony Foy, group
managing director, Interxion. "We are delighted that IPC selected our data
