Arab National Bank (ANB) has chosen 3Com to upgrade its network infrastructure and security across Saudi Arabia. “We are continually looking at ways to take the lead in introducing technology that improves customer service, and 3Com is helping us deliver on that promise,” said Ahmad Ashgan, general manager of ANB’s Central Operations and IT Group. “With increased IT efficiency from this upgrade, our customers will feel the benefit of increased transaction speed and enjoy innovative new services.” The project, which is already underway, will include deployment of core and edge network technology, as well as intrusion prevention system (IPS) appliances, from 3Com’s TippingPoint subsidiary. “This relationship is a demonstration of 3Com’s technology leadership, exceptional value and our proven ability to deliver mission critical service levels to major enterprise organizations like Arab National Bank,” said Issac Shihabi, general manager at 3Com Middle East. ANB says it is at the forefront of technological innovation in the Kingdom, pointing to its status as the first bank in KSA to deploy an internet banking system for its customers. The new 3Com equipment being deployed at ANB includes multiple 3Com Switch 8800 core switches, Switch 5500 edge switches, and both 5000 and 6000 series routers, in addition to the TippingPoint IPS.
