Rostelecom has created a single telecommunications network for almost 1,700 VTB branches across Russia.
The operator will provide the bank's divisions with main and backup communication channels with data processing centers, as well as guarantee encryption with the use of certified cryptographic information security tools.
"As one of VTB’s strategic partners, Rostelecom will participate in the implementation of this project to modernise the communication channel systems for VTB offices and branches throughout the country. As a result, the structure will be completely transformed: offices will be directly connected to data centers, and a reserve system will be created for each communication channel, which will increase stability. The average bandwidth of communication channels will increase by up to two times, and the speed of information transmission will also increase, " said Vadim Kulik, Deputy President and Chairman of the VTB Management Board.
The project has been implemented as part of a program to improve the reliability and availability of VTB services, which was first launched by the bank in 2019.
"This project represents a continuation of the development of an effective partnership between VTB and Rostelecom. Our company has become a digital partner of the bank and takes on the task of providing a wide range of telecommunications services to its regional network. We guarantee a high-quality and uninterrupted operation of the data transmission network with 99.99% reliability. The cutting edge telecommunications infrastructure, comprehensive expertise in ensuring information security and professional service support allow Rostelecom to implement large-scale projects and offer modern solutions for corporate customers anywhere in the country." added Vladimir Kiriyenko, First Vice President of Rostelecom.
