THEIR CHALLENGE

Managing  Multiple Service Providers & Resources

As their digital customers and branch location footprint expands globally, the bank cannot afford to let their network infrastructure slow down the performance of their digital applications. Instead of having to manage multiple service providers, which increased costs and reduced agility, the bank needed a one-stop service provider to manage everything from last-mile connectivity to the CSPs.

At the same time, the bank will need to carefully recalibrate its existing port to the three different CSPs based on bandwidth. The solution has to complement the existing infrastructure and be rolled out within a short timeframe.

THEIR SOLUTION

Cloud Connect via Multi-Service Port

The bank deployed Epsilon’s Cloud Connect solution via its Multi-Service Port for direct, secure connections to AWS, GCP and IBM Cloud. With a flexible networking model, it was able to adjust network capacity to the cloud-based on usage from a single port.

Epsilon provided a comprehensive solution with full site-to-port connectivity as well as hands-on cabling within the data centre. The bank was able to get started quickly and efficiently without needing its own team to manage the setup. In addition to the last mile and Cloud Connect, it can also move the port anywhere on Epsilon’s network so it can serve changing demand in the future.

Epsilon’s Multi-Service Port offering also allows the bank to move to the port to any location on its network fabric.
