MUFG turns to Neos Networks for network capacity without constraint for key data centres

  • Neos Networks

London, UK, April 19, 2016 Neos Networks, the UK’s leading provider of network infrastructure and data centre services, and part of the SSE group – today announced that it has provided one of the world’s leading financial group’s, Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc (MUFG), with a diverse private optical network between its two strategic data centres in the South East. The low latency, high-capacity, scalable network will enable seamless connectivity for financial reporting and collaborative working.

The data centre connectivity provided by Neos Networks has diverse North and South routes, making it ultra-resilient on a network that is based on market leading technology from Ciena. Neos Networks has also given MUFG the capability to light up to 40Gbps of capacity, providing scalability for future projects. This initial project was deployed on time, on budget and to the exact specifications laid out by the bank.

“We understand that the IT environment within banks is changing and their networks are coming under increasing pressure as new technologies – which are often cloud-based – are introduced, making it difficult to predict connectivity requirements whilst guaranteeing reliability and speed,” said Colin Sempill, managing director of Neos Networks. “This is why we place so much focus on working with our customers to understand their networking needs in context of the bigger picture. For MUFG, this meant reliability, a committed team, and the ability to open up capacity for future network requirements; the start of a solid partnership with the prestigious bank.”

“We are committed to providing our customers with the most competitive banking services in the market but this often requires additional IT installations that can put a strain on the existing networks,” said Philip Schunmann Associate Director EMEA at MUFG. “With Neos Networks, we no longer have to worry about the capacity requirements of projects coming down the pipeline. Additional network capacity, which can be deployed within minutes, means that we have a reliable telecoms infrastructure that can deliver banking services at the touch of a button.”

“The Neos Networks team has a thorough understanding of our wider business goals and we’re looking forward to a strong relationship where our connectivity capabilities push the boundaries of banking,” concluded Schunmann.

With Neos Networks, we no longer have to worry about the capacity requirements of projects coming down the pipeline.
