Batelco, Bahrain’s leading digital solutions provider, has expanded its wide portfolio of network back-up solutions for MPLS and dedicated Internet service with the deployment of a fully-redundant MPLS network with active backup capabilities for Ithmaar Bank.
This project positions Ithmaar Bank, a leading Islamic retail bank, as the first bank in Bahrain to deploy the service to ensure around-the-clock network resiliency even during network maintenance activities or any other causes that might result in network interruptions.
Batelco’s backup solution is an integrated, secure and a fully-managed solution providing redundancy and automatic traffic fail-over, which allows Ithmaar Bank to mitigate any risk of data loss, ultimately protecting the bank’s online services, ATM connections, revenues and reputation.
Batelco has successfully deployed the bespoke backup network for Ithmaar Bank while maintaining the bank’s online presence with no service disruption.
This innovative solution meets the critical needs of Ithmaar Bank for highly available, reliable and stable network connectivity between its subsidiaries, branches and ATMS, providing the bank’s customers with the highest standards of services. While network backup is an ideal solution for the banking and finance segment, this fully-licensed and regulated offering is also suitable for all enterprises.
In this regard, Batelco now provides a comprehensive suite of backup services available on multiple access media including fibre optics, Microwave, 4G LTE and ADSL.
