The connectivity project refers to selection of communication media that corresponds to upgraded routing and security equipment. I have considered few vendors and technologies for our R&D, based on their availability in Pakistan and offered services and solutions. Based on research and development work and analysis of different available terrestrial mediums, Askari Bank has finalized to redesign the country wide terrestrial network infrastructure with high availability of inter branch communications. Network Connectivity In order to develop stability and performance in existing communication network the bank has planned to bring its branches on fiber network. Initially, incorporate all branches in major cities and regional offices under this network. In addition to this, I also carried analysis work at branch level. Keeping a standard branch network setup I planned to compose a network solution that will enable us to incorporate state-of-the-art next generation applications. In order to have optimum Communication Stability and Manageability I have considered next generation Wimax technology for communication network as a secondary link of branch. We carried out research analysis for selection of access technology for TERRESTRIAL network according to the SBP requirements with scalability and complete control from centralized Network Operation Center (NOC) ETD. VoIP over Wimax Askari bank is intended to provide VoIP and video conferencing services over Wimax access technology. We have evaluated the performance of Wimax access method for VoIP. We have used licensed band with frequency of 3.5 GHz spectrum range that enables to deliver less expensive and high-speed wireless infrastructure.
