The solution installed is a complete integration of structured cabling, networking and telephony systems, which consist of LAN, WAN, Servers, Firewalls and IP telephones with the ability to connect the Abu Dhabi Head Office and Dubai based branch and Disaster Recovery Site.
A crucial part of the project was to ensure a consistent link between the head office and the Dubai branch, as well as secure it. Alpha Data worked with its partners including Nortel Networks, Belden and Juniper Networks to customize the solution in order to accelerate the performance of the Wide Area Network (WAN) and enable the consolidation of data between both branches.
A CallPilot Unified messaging system from Nortel was vitally important for the bank with users logging in from multiple sites using numerous log-in methods. This solution will allow users to handle their voice, fax and email messages as objects in a single mailbox that can be accessed from any web browser, e-mail or by telephone. Real Estate Bank implemented this powerful mobility to enhance the efficiency of their employees.
