Korean Financial Institution Equips Data Center for Software-Defined Networking
The National Credit Union Federation of Korea (CU) needed to upgrade its network to improve stability and performance while adding support for virtualization and software-defined networking (SDN).
A nonprofit cooperative financial institution, CU manages assets worth US$60 billion through 906 credit unions and 1656 branches in Korea. Its main businesses include universal banking, savings, lending, and mutual insurance for union members. CU deploys powerful IT systems to run its operations.
Juniper solutions have boosted the health of CU’s systems, including its electronic banking, test networks, backbone connectivity, the Internet, and training center and data center applications. The new high-performance network supports virtualization and SDN technology, which will help CU handle ever-increasing workloads and traffic efficiently.
