Lloyds TSB opens VoIP-enabled trading floor

Lloyds TSB Corporate Markets has set up a new trading floor for its derivatives, foreign exchange, credit and debt capital trading, with voice trading infrastructure from IPC.

The new 250-position trading floor was engineered and installed by IPC and fitted with the supplier’s Alliance MX infrastructure, IQMX and Remote Enterprise IQMX turrets, Applications Modules with TraderVision and Enterprise ICMX intercoms.

The system has been designed to reduce possible points of failure and to allow the addition of new trader voice circuits within a day – a process that took three to four days in the past.

The banking firm has also replaced its overall voice network infrastructure with IPC’s Enterprise Voice Services (EVS). The system allows voice communications to be delivered to both the existing and the new trading floor simultaneously, allowing traders to switch to the new site with no downtime.

Gavin Golbourn, head of production support at Lloyds TSB Corporate Markets, said, “We wanted to create an architecture that would be as robust as possible and that could easily grow along with us. We now have an even more efficient and secure operation that will allow us to serve our clients better than ever before.”
