SFMI deploys 3Com enterprise switches

To benefit from real-time voice traffic and data transmission for their PCs and IP phones

By CBR Staff Writer

3Com has completed the rollout of 1,300 3Com enterprise switches to the main and branch offices of Korean Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance.

According to 3Com, the deployment will enable Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance’s (SFMI) employees across the country to benefit from real-time voice traffic and data transmission for their PCs and IP phones.

Developed at 3Com’s advanced R&D facility in China, the Switch 5500-EI leverages 3Com’s eXpandable Resilient Network (XRN) technology that virtually combines multiple switches into a single logical switch, according to the company.

SFMI is also using the 5500-EI’s power-over-ethernet capability for distribution of power to other devices over the same cabling used for data transmission. In addition, the 5500-EI can also recognize IP phones and automatically place them in a dedicated virtual LAN to ensure security and service quality for VoIP traffic, said 3Com.

Jae Oh, country manager for Korea at 3Com, said: SFMI’s successful deployment lays another milestone on our long track record of serving the financial services industry with our well-established resilient switching technologies. 3Com will continue to leverage our culture of technological innovation along with our fresh, new enterprise product portfolio to bring enterprise customers around the world high-value, high-performance solutions that truly address their business needs.
