Huawei Innovates Financial Services with EBS International
EBS International, which is registered in Hong Kong and is a subsidiary of Everbright Securities Co., Ltd., currently serves customers in Hong Kong and Mainland China. The company provides comprehensive financial services including securities, corporate financing, assets management, quantitative trading, futures, foreign exchange, gold and insurance, as well as other services. To compete in international capital markets, EBS International needs to provide fast, reliable, and innovative financial services that meet global customer expectations.
New technologies like mobility, big data, and cloud computing are transforming the way financial products and services are delivered. Customers now expect seamless digital channels operating 24/7 to carry out their financial transactions. To meet these fast-evolving expectations, EBS International needed to construct a reliable, secure, and efficient ICT infrastructure that enabled the company to accelerate innovation and expand into new geographies.
Huawei has helped EBS International upgrade its data center and campus networks by deploying high-performance equipment, including CE12800 series data center core switches, USG6000 Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs), S5700 high-performance campus switches, Wide Local Area Network (WLAN) products, including AC6005 Access Controllers (ACs), AP4030 Access Points (APs), and other products. The new financial network has the following advantages:
The newly reliable and secure network enables EBS International to enhance agility and promote innovations in its financial services, including securities, corporate financing, and futures trading. An independent three-plane design of CE switches ensures long-term, stable running of the Data Center Network (DCN). The In-Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) technology ensures EBS International has non-stop financial services. VS technology securely isolates financial services. The USG6000 Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) can identify more than 6,000 applications — the highest in the industry. It integrates various security functions such as traditional firewall, Virtual Private Network (VPN), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), Anti-Virus (AV), and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for secure EBS International financial services.
The low-latency and large-capacity non-blocking network architecture ensures a positive user experience in high-frequency transactions and network access. The Agile Wi-Fi solution supports multiple authentication modes and improves work efficiency by helping EBS International employees access the network, anytime and anywhere.
