MCB Bank has announced successful completion of the first phase in its major online banking upgrade project for nationwide branch connectivity.
Currently around 450 branches of MCB are being served via next generation optical fiber connectivity, with an additional 150 branches planned in the next phase.
Multinet, as MCB’s partner, is serving their requirements via its largest MPLS 100% end-to-end fiber optic network, supplemented by cutting edge IP Ethernet services, linking MCB’s nationwide branch network and data centers across Pakistan.
As part of the multi-year agreement, Multinet will provide dedicated Managed Network Services 24/7/365 via its state-of-the-art central Network Operations Center (NOC) facilities.
The NOC will continuously monitor the entire MCB network and provide early fault diagnosis and prevention services, as well as monitor network performance for continuous optimization.
“This initiative is yet another milestone in MCB’s continuing endeavors in providing innovative and efficient financial solutions to our customers as well as enhancing our connectivity and operating efficiency and services for both our external and internal customers” said Adnan Zaki, CIO for MCB.
“Multinet greatly appreciates the trust that MCB has placed in us to help them enhance their customers’ experiences via our fast, secure and reliable connectivity solutions enabled on our nationwide end to end fiber optic networking. This is another example in our tradition of building strong relationships throughout the nation’s leading corporate clients and support MCB’s mission of delighting their customers” said Arif Hussain, COO of Multinet
