The new system is expected to help enabling the integration of telecommunications with banking business applications

Russia‘s Trust National Bank has completed the upgrade of its country-wide communications network with Cisco’s Unified Communications.


According to Cisco, the new system helps enable the integration of telecommunications with banking business applications. Bank employees can access a range of telephony services to maximise the efficiency of using PSTN lines and cut long-distance communications bills.


Trust National Bank’s network upgrade deployed different Cisco products, such as voice gateways, WAN routers, IP Phones and access switches. Specialists from NVision Group, a Cisco Gold Certified Partner, completed the entire network infrastructure upgrade — installing the whole set of hardware and software utilities.


Alexei Katrich, managing director of IT and operations at Trust National Bank, said: Located across 40 cities of the Russian Federation, we required new innovative communications tools to realise the full potential of our banking applications and the raise quality of service for our customers, while enjoying economic benefits of new technologies. Cisco IP solutions offer a strong mix of reliability, integration, reduced operational costs and long-term viability.


Pavel Teplov, business development manager of Cisco, said: The Cisco Unified Communications solution is helping to enable growth by laying a strong foundation for raising collaboration performance and improving cooperation with customers and partners, which in turn could help the Bank increase
clients’ loyalty.
