South Indian Bank to use Nortel’s VoIP solution

By : |May 15, 2002 0



BANAGLORE: South Indian Bank, a private sector banking institution, has
selected Nortel Network’s solution, a converged IP (Internet Protocol)
voice and data network, ultimately expected to connect 150 branches
nationwide.

Solutions from Nortel Networks have already linked 50 branches across the
country to South Indian Bank’s Data Center at Thrissur, its headquarters.
Connection of another 100 branches is scheduled for completion by the end
of this year.

The end-to-end South Indian Bank solution makes use of Nortel Networks WAN
(wide area network), LAN (local area network) and voice over IP solutions
to provide a reliable, scalable IP backbone for seamless transport of
high-quality voice and secure, encrypted data traffic.

The government of India’s recent legislation allowing voice over IP has
created a market opportunity, said Nortel Networks India vice president,
Enterprise Solutions, Ravi Chauhan. As a global market leader in voice
over IP, our solutions enable enterprises to migrate to voice over IP at
their own pace and in step with their own business requirements, while
protecting current investments in equipment and infrastructure.

At the core of Nortel Networks solution for South Indian Bank is Nortel
Networks Meridian IP PBX with Internet Telephony Gateway. This solution is
designed to handle a range of voice over IP services, in addition to the
traditional voice mail, call center and computer telephony integration
(CTI) services that have made Meridian 1 one of the world s best-selling
PBXs.

South Indian Bank is also deploying Nortel Networks i2004 IP telephones to
handle next generation solutions enabled by desktop convergence of voice
and data, and Nortel Networks Remote Office 9150 option to extend the
same, high-quality communications functionality to branch offices.

The South Indian Bank LAN is based on Nortel Networks Passport 8600
routing switch, which provides secure, intelligent network routing to
support bandwidth growth and mission-critical reliability. Passport 8600
supports a high-performance Layer 2-7 switching architecture; 512 Gigabits
backplane switching capacity; and supports Fast Ethernet, Gigabit
Ethernet, Packet-over-SONET, ATM and CWDM interfaces within a single
platform that supports voice, video and data.
Nortel Networks is also deploying the flexible Access Stack Node (ASN)
router to integrate core WAN traffic, and to offer virtual private network
(VPN) tunneling, IP Multicast, and extensive quality of service (QoS)
features, in addition to triple DES encryption. Nortel Networks Advanced
Remote Node (ARN) routers are also being installed to provide scalable and
cost-effective connectivity for remote offices and network centers.
