Cisco to deploy next-generation network at NSE
Bangalore: Networking equipment major Cisco said it had won a major contract to deploy next-generation network at the National Stock Exchange (NSE), but did not specify the value of the deal.

"The network comprise routing, switching, security and core technologies to help ensure high network availability, boost network security and expand the exchange's reach across the country," Cisco India vice-president Anil Bhasin said in a statement here.

As an exclusive networking technology provider to the country's largest stock exchange, Cisco will install a three-tier network architecture with routers, switches, firewall and intrusion prevention system modules.

"The system is designed to provide enhanced security, intelligent load balancing for business continuity, better collaboration and integration across 3,000 NSE member locations," Bhasin noted.

NSE Chief Technology Officer Ravi Apte said: "Our decision to shift to Cisco's intelligent network platform was driven by the need for a secure, resilient and collaborative network infrastructure".
