BT is set to offer enhanced trading communications with the launch of a touch screen version of ITS.Netrix, a new addition to the ITS.Netrix multimedia desktop family.
According to BT, the ITS.Netrix range of devices signals a move of intelligence from fixed proprietary equipment in the trading building to network-centric implementations, so a user can access trading communications and collaborate anywhere from any device. Voice, video, web, email, chat, instant messaging, mobile and other compatible client systems can be integrated seamlessly into the ITS.Netrix user environment.
BT claims the unique capability of both fully converged, high-performance voice-over-IP and traditional voice connectivity from the same device enables a managed and more cost-effective migration to a fully converged communication infrastructure.
Rod MacDonald, manager director, global financial services, said, The ITS.Netrix has really changed what people have come to expect from a communications device on the trading desktop. It offers all the reliability, connectivity and speed you expect from a traditional turret and provides fully converged IP and traditional TDM connectivity from the same device with no difference in user functionality.
