Customers in Asia's Top Financial Centers Get Maximum Service Availability, Uptime and Management with IPC's New Optical Network

JERSEY CITY, New Jersey, July 6, 2010 - IPC Systems, Inc. a leading provider of indispensable trading
communications solutions to the world's top financial services firms and
global enterprises, today announced the completion of its pan-Asian Optical
Network enhancement. IPC's network connects major financial centers via a
high-speed, fully-restorable pan-Asian optical network. The newly upgraded
network infrastructure enables the delivery of private line voice and
Electronic Connectivity Services over a secure, high speed service platform
to support the growing demands of the Asia-Pacific trading community.

This investment in the backbone infrastructure technology will provide
IPC's customers the most efficient highway connecting clients and execution
venues across the region, including more than 4,000 market participants
currently on-net. The Asia-Pacific optical network connects trading venues
across major financial centers in Singapore, Hong Kong and Tokyo. IPC has
also added network capacity to Taipei and Korea to provide improved route
diversity for customers in the region. The new platform offers users
resilient service delivery with self-healing re-routing capabilities and has
been constructed in conjunction with multiple tier-one carriers to ensure
maximum performance.

"This recent upgrade is part of IPC's strategic plan to increase capacity
throughout the Asia-Pacific region and connecting Europe and North America
for the growing Ethernet services requirements and exchange connectivity that
our customers demand," said Mark Curran, vice president, Network Service
Operations, IPC. "We have invested significantly to ensure that the IPC
network reaches virtually every trading destination globally, including
alternative venues and those in expanding markets. IPC's customer service
approach and ability to support quick access to liquidity with high service
performance continues to ensure our global customers compete effectively and
operate efficiently."

The optical network provides a flexible and scalable communications
framework, and offers users improved service delivery times and connectivity
to their trading partners across the Asia-Pacific region. The Asia-Pacific
network upgrade is part of the IPC's continuing commitment to its customers
and follows the company's recent announcement
regarding the expansion of its SIP-based Enhanced Voice Service (EVS) into
Hong Kong and Singapore.
