Introducing a new, compact turret for todays trading communications

Powered by
Like its big brother, the new IQ/MAX Edge turret powered by IPCs innovative Unigy platform is a highly specialized, multi-line communications device featuring presence, hoot and intercom, speakers, private lines, voice recording, Microsoft Outlook integration via the IQ/Max Sync and enterprise-wide presence capability to help firms significantly improve collaboration across the trading desk and trading support staff. With the economical IQ/MAX Edge device, traders who now use a PBX phone in conjunction with a hoot and holler device can gain access to high-performance, multi-channel telephony and hoot/intercom functionality previously beyond their reach. Its all consolidated into a single compact device that saves valuable desktop space. Researchers, analysts and other off-floor trading support teams get vital, direct interactions with traders or customers. Administrators can manage, maintain and secure the entire system on a fully integrated platform via a unified management interface. Edges broad, full-color, high-resolution screens and highdefinition audio help simplify the timely and accurate exchange of information. Edge includes an applications launch pad where users and traders can access Unigy platform applications to help improve trade processing and productivity. Edge can also filter and prioritize call history information so traders and other users can quickly recognize and respond to the most urgent and relevant calls, allowing deals to get done faster.

Weve put hoot and intercom functionality into a new, cutting edge, yet economical turret.

Now, for the first time, traders at small- to mid-size firms, portfolio managers, economists, compliance and risk managers or anyone desiring a cutting edge, yet value-minded turret can have the same competitive advantages of IPCs award-winning and industry-leading IQ/MAX turret with our latest innovation IQ/MAX Edge.

Streamlined integration for off-floor colleagues

Todays supercharged trading environment combined with constantly increasing regulatory requirements make collaboration and consistency across the front and back offices a necessity to ensure compliance. IQ/MAX Edge meets the urgent needs of most analysts and trading support staff, providing them the ability to freely exchange information seamlessly between themselves, traders, compliance teams or any other Unigy platform users.

Simplified administration and maintenance

Unifying on- and off-floor communications on the Unigy unified management platform provides firms with an end-to-end, single vendor solution eliminating the need to manage multiple vendors for trading communications. The integrated system requires less infrastructure and data center real estate. Most importantly, with IQ/MAX Edge turrets, firms can provide more power, administrative control and functionality to their users at a lower total cost of ownership. IQ/MAX Edge delivers a powerful, cost-effective solution for trading communications.

Innovative, collabortive turret technology puts greater profitability for your firm within reach.

Remote control from the desktop

Every IQ/MAX Edge device comes equipped with IQ/MAX Sync, a powerful PC-based productivity tool. IQ/MAX Sync allows users to manage calls, speakers, contacts, directories and more directly from a PC.
