BEIJING -- Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), China's largest commercial bank, has deployed a storage area networking (SAN) and disaster recovery solution from Nortel Networks* [NYSE/TSX: NT]. This solution puts ICBC in a better position to ensure business continuity, and to extend risk management and competitive capabilities in domestic and worldwide financial markets. Nortel Networks business continuity solution, developed in association with storage industry leader EMC*, is based on Nortel Networks OPTera* Metro 5200 Multiservice Platform. The network leverages the power of dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical technology to link ICBC's Beijing data consolidation center with a backup facility at another location in the capital. The Beijing center collects data from approximately 21 provinces across North China. Designed to provide high reliability, flexibility and scalability, Nortel Networks OPTera Metro 5200 can carry very large amounts of data in real-time between the data consolidation center and the backup site. It is also designed to enable virtually instant data recovery in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. "This ICBC project further strengthens Nortel Networks leadership position in building advanced metro optical networks in China," said Robert Mao, president and chief executive officer, Nortel Networks China. "We hope to continue growing this relationship with a wide range of China's industries and enterprises by deploying advanced and reliable solutions designed to boost business performance and accelerate business success."
