BT, one of the world’s largest suppliers of financial trading room systems, has supplied Calamos Investments with its latest ITS voice trading technology.
BT’s ITS application offers integrated trading via remote devices, and time-division multiplexing connectivity for mission-critical trading activities.
Calamos said that the BT solution was an ideal amalgamation of current functionality and future proofing, as it provided an ideal platform should the company wish to migrate to IP in the future.
Calamos intends to offer ITS to traders that need to trade from remote or alternative sites in order to cover extended exchange hours or markets in other time zones.
Corey Owens, manager of network administration, Calamos Investments, said, We needed a trading technology that would leverage our success and offer us increased scope and flexibility. The ITS device provides us with unlimited direct lines to the outside world, better identification for callers and enhanced conferencing capabilities. Its functionality, interoperability and intuitive design made it the logical choice.
