Deutsche Bank has announced a three to five year programme to consolidate its global telecommunications infrastructure.
The bank plans to move from hundreds of PBXs to just five primary servers to deliver telecommunications for 3,100 buildings in 72 countries.
The bank plans to use Avaya’s Aura Session Initial Protocol (SIP) based infrastructure to provide a unified communications architecture for the bank.
The upgrade will provide IP telephony and applications including the ability to click-to-dial from computer screens and to extend office calls and directory access to mobile or smart phones. In addition the technology will give remote workers consistent access to all their communications tools.
By putting the core IPT infrastructure at just five datacentres the bank will minimise the amount of equipment required in the branch sites, simplifying installations and maintenance and educing time to add new features and applications.
