Today’s banking would be unimaginable without the internet and technology. Not a single service could be provided without having access to the internet, connecting various systems and databases of a bank. The financial sector is among the most rapidly changing verticals nowadays. While in some places of the world the growth of mobile and internet banking is making a portion of physical banks obsolete, in other places the number of branch additions is still on the rise, or elsewhere they are getting reshaped to meet the changing market needs and methods of providing services.
The bank branch connectivity has to overcome multiple challenges. Connection reliability is a must. Being a customer-oriented institution, a bank cannot risk to be offline even for short periods of time, as it may cause not just dissatisfaction of the clients but also system disturbances. There is no question regarding the required top-level security of the data and transactions of any kind. However, besides these more obvious requirements, there is also a demand for flexibility and ease of setting-up. The rapidly changing situation in demographics and economy, strikes a challenge to predict of where and for how long a specific branch would be needed. As such, the installation should be quick and easily applicable in another location.
The bank branches in the US and across the world are getting smaller in size and the staff. The number of full-time employees has declined and varies on average from 3 to 8 per branch. As seen in topology, such branches do not require a complicated network infrastructure and Ethernet connectivity fully suffices the day-to-day operations.
