Banque centrale du Luxembourg (BCL) has implemented a new flexible network solution with Netcore PSF. The main technical constraints consisted principally to spread and encrypt the same broadcast domain between the different BCL sites and to achieve a highly available network backbone.
The solution adopted, enabled the BCL for the first time to combine Ethernet over MPLS, IPSec and VRF Lite protocols simultaneously on one single platform. The combination of these technologies was made possible by use of the Cisco 7600 router/switch.
The new network solution was put into production after a thorough testing phase and
proved to satisfy the needs and purposes of BCL. The BCL was founded by the laws of 22 April 1998 and 23 December 1998 as amended by the law of 13 July 2007. The BCL was set up at the same time as the European Central Bank (ECB). Its foundation represents the final outcome of long efforts in creating a Monetary Union in the context of the creation of the European Economic and Monetary Union ((EMU), see also Eurosystem).
Subsidiary of the Luxembourg’s P&T and Systemsgroup S.A., Netcore is specialized in the design, implementation and maintenance of IT networks and excels as provider of Voice/ Data/Security solutions for “Managed Services”.
