Case Study: Dutch-Bangla Bank Limited

Improving service availability with Cisco ACI

Despite being the most innovative bank in Bangladesh, DBBL experienced four blackouts in two years because its power grid couldn't handle the load. DBBL turned to Cisco ACI to establish an active/active data center that can withstand both scheduled and unexpected downtime.



  • Reduce service disruptions caused by power outages
  • Synchronize the management of two data centers
  • Support a rapidly growing number of customers, partners, and touch points



  • Improved service availability with infrastructure and application redundancy
  • Increased capacity with automated traffic management and load balancing
  • Boosted network operations efficiency through centralized management
  • Bolstered security and disaster recovery with multiple fault zones

What they’re saying

Network operations have become much easier. We can see the entire network and the health of our links from the APIC [Application Policy Infrastructure Controller]. It gives us very good visibility, so there’s no need for third-party monitoring tools.

Sk. Shakil Ahmed, Head of Security and Senior Assistant Vice President, DBBL
