Huawei MicroDC Helps Bank of China Grow

15/01/2014 02:08:59 p.m.

Background

Established in 1912, Bank of China Limited (BOC) is one of China’s largest banks and is ranked in the top 10 of the world’s largest banks in market capitalization. BOC provides a comprehensive range of financial services to customers across the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, and 36 other countries.

Challenges

In 2013, BOC wanted a fast way to set up IT support for a Lisbon branch, the bank’s fifth branch in Europe. The Lisbon branch needed a completely new set of systems to handle capabilities that included Office Automation (OA), IP phones, email, Wi-Fi, video conferencing, video surveillance, private data networking, and local banking systems. Using traditional application-based planning, design, procurement, and deployment, the bank would need 4 to 6 months to set up the systems.

In addition to the time required, BOC was concerned that using products from multiple vendors would increase the cost of Operation and Maintenance (O&M) tasks such as software upgrades, parts replacement, and routine troubleshooting. The O&M cost would increase Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). BOC needed an IT setup that was compact and could operate unattended.

Solution

The BOC Lisbon branch chose Huawei’s MicroDC solution for its ability to establish services quickly and minimize ongoing costs. This solution packs complete Data Center (DC) capabilities into a single rack of equipment.

Huawei developed the MicroDC solution specifically to provide an integrated set of IT capabilities for enterprises that have branches located in multiple geographic areas. The MicroDC solution incorporates power supply/distribution devices, sensors, servers, storage devices, network devices, and wireless Access Routers (ARs). The system includes basic software to ensure fast deployment and provide a function-rich platform that operates efficiently and securely when unattended.

Huawei deployed three MicroDC systems to meet the Lisbon branch’s requirements and included Huawei’s eSight network management software to enable unified management of all the equipment.

Benefits

The Huawei MicroDC solution dramatically shortened IT deployment time to less than 1 month. The systems occupy less than one square meter per cabinet and are fully functional when unattended. The eSight software and remote management features minimize routine O&M requirements for the branch.

BOC’s Lisbon branch has found the Huawei MicroDC solution quite useful. By allowing the branch to focus on its banking business rather than on system integration and management, Huawei allowed BOC to quickly expand into the Portuguese market.
