DMP Launches ULC-Approved Network Monitoring Solution for Canadian Bank

Upgrade to one of Canada's largest banks cuts millions in monitoring costs while improving security, systems integration


Springfield, Missouri -- Digital Monitoring Products, DMP, with channel partner Intercon Security has begun work on a 1,149-branch conversion project for one of the largest banks in Canada. The conversion to the DMP XR500E system with 128-bit encryption for IP communication to the central station is the first network bank solution to earn ULC approval.

The conversion includes the replacement of proprietary control panels that communicated via a dedicated multiplex security network of leased phone lines, saving the institution millions in recurring operating cost - while simultaneously improving security to each site location

"The conversion project not only improves communications via secure IP routing and disaster recovery paths, it also combines ULC rated vault & safe protection with integrated access control and networked video," said Marc Bergeron, DMP Director of Market Development for Banking Solutions, Eastern US and Canada. "Intercon and DMP have worked together to integrate premise protection for the customer's branches and automated banking machines or ABMs-called ATMs in the U.S.," he added. Integration improvements enable system users to perform multiple system functions remotely, offering even further reduction in operating cost.
