, October 11, 2011 - Reinforcing its leadership in Managed Services, Etisalat today announced that it is currently implementing a Managed ATM solution for Dubai Islamic Bank (DIB), the world's first Islamic bank, to provide end-to-end managed services for 252 offsite ATMs.
Etisalat will provide holistic management of all the MPLS links and routers for the Dubai Islamic Bank country wide network of 252 offsite ATMs. The Managed ATM solution has already been implemented across DIB's 180 remote ATM sites in the first phase and the second phase for linking the additional 72 ATM sites is in progress.
