Global Financial Services Firm ePulse Facilitates Complex Derivatives Trades through Jabber XCP


Jabber, Inc. Extends Advanced Presence Services into ePulse’s OTCtrader

August 1, 2006 – Denver, Colo. – ePulse, a London-based provider of advanced collaborative trading platforms for global Over The Counter (OTC) transactions, today announced that the Jabber Extensible Communications Platform (Jabber XCP) is now embedded within ePulse’s OTCtrader product. Sold to institutions where OTC trades are viewed as an essential means of globally diversifying risk, Jabber XCP brings the industry standard for instant messaging (IM) and presence extensions to OTCtrader’s compliant pre- and post-trade transactional messaging systems.

“Risk diversification through the use of complex commodity derivatives on a global scale necessitates speed, agility, and maximum awareness of liquidity and order-flows at the point of decision,” said Barry Patel, CEO of ePulse. “Jabber XCP’s open architecture, extensibility, scalability, and incumbent status with many financial services customers made for an easy decision.”

Jabber XCP is a secure, highly programmable presence and real-time messaging framework capable of weaving people, applications, networks, devices, media, and protocols together into an aggregated information environment. Jabber XCP is built upon the Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP), approved by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) as a standard for IM and presence technologies.

“Financial services firms understand presence and its extended capabilities exceedingly well,” said Paul Guerin, CEO of Jabber, Inc. “Companies such as ePulse and our customers on Wall Street know that well architected presence solutions, like Jabber XCP, give first movers a significant competitive advantage because they create opportunities for more effective coordination and better decisions at an accelerated pace.”
