ADTRAN-Citizens National Bank

The Citizens National Bank opened its doors in 1973, originally serving residents of Sevierville, Tennessee and surrounding areas. The company was facing several technological challenges, which eventually led to the Citizens National Bank’s implementation of numerous ADTRAN technologies. The bank had an aging network that was in need of an upgrade. Citizens National Bank also wanted to increase performance and extend service to an ATM location using non-traditional means.

Not long ago, the company was facing several technological challenges, which eventually led to the Citizens National Bank's implementation of numerous ADTRAN technologies. The bank had an aging network that was in need of an upgrade. Citizens National Bank also wanted to increase performance and extend service to an ATM location using non-traditional means.

 

Citizens National Bank chose a variety of ADTRAN equipment to outfit its new and improved network, including a 5305 modular router at the main branch and NetVanta 3430 IP access routers at each of its 18 other locations. Switches, NetVanta 340 ADSL routers, ADTRAN’s VPN client for mobile workers, and the 3G wireless NIM were also deployed.

 

One of the major benefits of Citizens National Bank’s decision to go with ADTRAN technologies was the price. The quote they obtained from ADTRAN for the network upgrade was less than half of the one obtained from a competitor for hardware alone. The solution is scalable, and will allow the company to double in size before the core router will need to be changed. The bank has also been pleased with the reliability of their ATM solution – they have not had any issues with the NIM in more than three months. Citizens National Bank has also cited ease of use and the great relationship they have with the computer company as important advantages of choosing ADTRAN technologies.
