RiT Technologies, a provider of network connectivity management products, has announced that a major U.S. investment bank with branches in Canada is deploying its PatchView for the Enterprise Version 3.0 software at 12 sites across Europe.
The deployment will result in the bank centrally managing an estimated 500,000 PatchView enabled ports that have been installed over the past five years, making it the world’s largest managed physical infrastructure installation, the company said.
The Web-enabled offering will allow the bank to manage its European physical layer network from three centralized control sites — one for its eight London branches, one for its Frankfurt offices, and one for its operations in Milan, Zurich, and Geneva.
"The end-to-end network visibility afforded by the system, together with its guided work-order support and advanced troubleshooting capabilities, will significantly improve network control and reliability," RIT said in a statement.
"Today’s enterprises are crippled when the network goes down, and, for financial institutions, the associated losses can run to several millions of dollar," said Liam Galin, President and CEO of RiT.
