Banco Supervielle Acquired Cisco Borderless Network Architecture

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina July 7, 2011 – The Argentinean bank Banco Supervielle has implemented the Cisco Borderless Network Architecture to adjust and speed its processes, improve productivity and reduce costs.  This adoption has allowed the financial entity to unify its communications without affecting workflows or losing contact with customers, and to keep its banking services active for users at any time.

Banco Supervielle deployed wireless connection solutions, electronic signs, solutions for remote access and teleworking tools, helping to assure business continuity and productivity gains in a safe environment, from any device.

The Cisco Borderless Network Architecture has enabled the company to respond more efficiently to the new demands of the market. Since the implementation, the company has made decisions faster and has achieved an important cost reduction and a general integration, which optimizes the processes of the bank, with great benefit to its customers.

Key Facts:

  • The implementation of Borderless Networks solutions was completed in 60 days, minimizing costs for the financial entity and accelerating the startup of the new bank branches.
  • The Cisco Borderless Network Architecture allowed the integration of voice, data and video in the network. In this way, these solutions allow access from different devices, from any geographic location. For Banco Supervielle, this meant an important reduction in costs at a national level.
  • More than 3,000 employees of the bank are already collaborating all over the country through Cisco Borderless Networks solutions.
  • After having integrated its networks internally, the financial entity continued implementing solutions which directly benefit the bank customers, allowing them, for example, to have more reliable and safer home banking services.
  • Logicalis was the Cisco Gold Certified Partner in charge of this implementation.

How does the Cisco Borderless Network Architecture help?

With the new requirements of business environments, in which mobility, security and the demand of the networks to support contents like video are more frequent, having robust architectures is essential. These are some of the characteristics of the Cisco Borderless Networks:

  • Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) discriminates between the devices of an organization and the ones belonging to personal users; it automates security within the organization with access policies applied to the network and encryption; and it simplifies IT operations allowing definitions of policies that reflect the rules of the business based on user, device, application and location.
  • Cisco Prime™ for Enterprise  allows IT departments to more efficiently manage their networks and network services. It is built on a base of attributes of central service and a set of common operating services. It offers users convergent administration and access to wired and wireless networks.
  • Cisco medianet solutions enable the network and the video endpoints to exchange information and automatically optimize configuration and performance. They deliver improved network visibility for video with real-time monitoring, an accelerated troubleshooting solution, evaluation prior to deployment, and better decision-making related to the network.
  • Cisco ISR G2 integrated video conferencing optimizes the quality of video communications for branch offices, reducing wide area network traffic for the video applications of branch offices.
  • Cisco Medianet Readiness Assessment Service assesses a customer's network infrastructure and its ability to successfully support rich media.
