Major French banking group BPCE chooses Huawei as one of its technology partners

Groupe BPCE has chosen Huawei as one of its technology partners as a part of its infrastructure development. With support from Huawei, Groupe BPCE pursues the technological development of networks of its agencies.

Technological innovation is significant for Groupe BPCE who wishes to offer new services based on architectures, such as cloud-based service platforms or new advanced offerings in agencies, such as virtual teller machines.

Solving challenges with better performance

To meet these new customer requirements, Groupe BPCE must rely on flexible technological infrastructures that allow for more frequent modifications to configurations with easier deployment and management.

High performance Wi-Fi networks are currently deployed and these networks must be scalable and leverage benefits from technologies that will meet requirements for the next 10 years.

Innovative solutions from Huawei

To meet the needs of Groupe BPCE, Huawei has proposed its Agile Network solution with its S5700-LI series of switching products, which meets the requirements of a wide range of applications such as High-Definition (HD) video and high-performance Wi-Fi.

Huawei's network solution integrates Intelligent Stack, or iStack, an intelligent infrastructure technology, for enhanced scalability. Huawei's iStack technology allows for simplified network management, facilitating expansion.

The Huawei solution also integrates energy-saving technologies, including Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE), port power detection, dynamic CPU frequency adjustment, and device standby. These technologies enable Groupe BPCE to reduce power consumption and operating costs by flexibly adjusting the power, depending on the states and usage of its infrastructures.

Finally, Huawei eSight, the flexible and open platform, helps the companies of Groupe BPCE to customize their intelligent network management system.

To date, 197 companies from the Fortune Global 500 list and 45 of the top 100 companies have chosen Huawei as their technological partner.

Groupe BPCE, the second largest banking group in France, relies on the two networks of cooperative commercial banks which are autonomous and complementary: Banque Populaire currently has 15 while Caisses d'Epargne has 16. In the housing finance domain, BPCE relies on Crédit Foncier. The subsidiary Banque Natixis is a major player for savings and insurance solutions, wholesale banking services, and specialized financial services. Groupe BPCE has 31.2 million customers and 108,000 employees; BPCE offers a large presence in France with 8,000 local bank agencies and 9 million members.

Groupe BPCE offers its customers a comprehensive range of products and services: Savings and investment solutions, cash management services, financing solutions, insurance, and wholesale banking services.
