Clinton National Bank

Banking and Financial Services

Originally entering business in 1865, Clinton National Bank is one of the oldest financial institutions in the state of Iowa, US.

MPLS T1 Alternative

Before implementing Peplink, Clinton National Bank exclusively used an MPLS T1 network between 9 branch locations. There was no redundancy or ability to transfer large amounts of data to offsite locations; this was being done strictly via tapes manually transferred between locations.

Ever-increasing costs of local loop Telco lines to attach from a branch into our MPLS cloud prompted Clinton National Bank to look for alternative ways to make this connection. They also wanted a method for Branch connectivity in the event the MPLS circuit went down, and to be able to as replicate/transfer large amounts of data between Datacenters.

Success Factors

Fast and Reliable

The Peplink solution allowed CNB to connect all of their branches onto their existing network with increased bandwidth and more reliability.

Integrate with current MPLS

SpeedFusion allowed a backup between branches for a continued connection if the MPLS went down.

Cost Effective

The Peplink Balance solution replaced the increasing costs of local loop Telco lines for an estimated savings of $2,500 per month.

Peplink Balance Routers & SpeedFusion VPN

Clinton National Bank deployed Peplink Balance 580 routers at their two largest branches, which serve as their Production Datacenter and their Backup Disaster Recovery Site. At their smaller locations they deployed Balance 210 routers. This allows them to have a backup SpeedFusion VPN between branches, and it allows them to replicate data between their two Datacenters using the full aggregated bandwidth they achieve through multiple high speed WAN connections from their Peplink devices.

They have greatly enhanced their network, not only in speed, but reliability. They have redundant connections between their locations and their Datacenter, and they are fully utilizing the flexibility of the Peplink devices.

Kevin Ross, Information Technology Officer

“We have been able to increase our bandwidth from 1.5M to approx. 20/5 at our branches that were previously costing us a very high rate. Our ROI will be a very short time period, thus increasing profitably at some locations where profits were being taken up substantially in Telco costs alone. We anticipate savings of approximately $2500 per month.

The flexibility of the Peplinks, which allowed us to utilize multiple low-cost, high speed WAN connections, allowed us to achieve our goal of lowering overall communication costs while increasing speed and reliability of our network. Also, the level of support from our vendor FrontierUS helped us achieve our goals in a timely manner. “
