With over 530 branches throughout the country, Khan Bank is one of the largest commercial banks in Mongolia and provides banking services to an estimated 70% of Mongolian households. The Khan Bank was established in 1991 as the Agricultural Cooperative Bank in connection with the dissolution of the State Bank of Mongolia’s monopoly. The Bank assumed most of the assets and businesses of the State Bank in rural Mongolia.
Each of Khan Bank’s 530 branches handles large amount of transactions and customer enquiries every day. Khan Bank requires a reliable surveillance solution to safeguard their customers and staff in their branches and ATM areas. However, the existing CCTV system was insufficient for meeting their heavy surveillance recording requirements, and Khan Bank planned to improve the safety of their ATM centers by deploying network cameras to deter robberies and other criminal incidents. In the meantime, for bigger branches, Khan Bank planned to upgrade their storage appliances to networked storage devices.
Khan Bank decided to replace their analog CCTV systems with a digital surveillance solution and install 156 units of the QNAP VioStor VS-2104 Pro+ NVR, 98 units of the VS-2108L NVRs, and 20 units of the TS-469 Pro Turbo NAS in their branches and ATM areas. Khan Bank upgraded their surveillance infrastructure to an all-IP solution featuring network cameras.
“With QNAP VioStor NVR solutions, we can easily fulfill customer requirements through the compatibility between NVRs and selected network cameras” said the local system integrator.
The three-stages of IP surveillance deployment starts from Khan Bank’s central office to all branch banks in the capital city and then to the branches in rural areas. Based on branch scale, Khan Bank implements one VioStor NVR with four to eight network cameras to build up an IP surveillance system. With the Turbo NAS storage expansion solution, the VioStor NVR storage can be extended to meet the mandated data archiving period.
The VS-2104 Pro+ and the VS-2108L NVRs run stably, reliably and with enhanced compatibility & performance with Khan Bank’s chosen cameras. After easily deploying and configuring the standalone VioStor NVRs, Khan Bank saved a great deal on system maintenance and technical consultation fees and whenever they have questions or need technical support, QNAP Security’s responsive and knowledgeable customer service team is always available to assist them. Additional savings were incurred with the VioStor NVR’s smart recording mode that records standard-resolution videos during normal events and high-resolution videos only when notable events occur or alarms are triggered – effectively reducing costs as additional hard drives are unnecessary. In addition to the above benefits, Khan Bank has made plans for the next stage of their surveillance system, where they will install the VioStor CMS turnkey solution and will be able to manage NVRs, cameras and events easily and efficiently.
