Never been a better time for cashless, for renovating the banking
Sahara Bank, one of the ten major banks under the control of Central Bank of Libya, which has a network of 48 branches country-wide and 1,500 staff. was facing one of the biggest challenges since it was established in 1964, that is after France's BNP pulled out of the operations of the bank in the aftermath of the revolutions in Libya.
At 2016 The Bank was not only asked to replace vital parts of the IT infrastructure that was running and operating by the BNP group within a short period of time but also to replace their legacy Core Banking systems, in order to catch with the wave of the future of Electronic banking, all together while keeping the customer and employees experience intact.
Ocean Technology has been working with Sahara Bank since then to Deliver a bold, unique, and game-changing solutions, giving clients more visibility with a killer experience, better digital tools and simple, convenient service Solutions that can constantly evolve to deliver big results.
Together with our Partners we’ve lead Sahara through several system Migrations that involved:
Consolidating Data Center Resources through implementing Flexpod PODs to host the new Temenos T24 solutions and later all the infrastructure services.
Increase reliability, speed, performance of the Bank’s wide area network, by implementing a countrywide Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) that spans their entire regions and includes all their branches, replacing the traditional Point to Point Network.
Secure and improve all types of networked applications while meeting customer demand for increased channel access and time to market while increasing security on both internal and public facing Applications.
Though out those system Migrations and project stages, we’ve share that same attitude of Sahara bank’s IT decision Makers ,that is to never settle for good enough when it comes to Network and Information security and the understanding that there isn't very much room to maneuver or modify what needs to be done when it comes to providing protection of both customer/member/Partners data and the institutions assets.
Ocean Technology Help Easing Isolation For Those Who Work Far From Home...
Mabrook oil operation approached us for a wireless internet solution that would mitigate effects of both the physical and psychological isolation their employees may experience while rotating on their field offshore field situated 150 km from Tripoli names Al Jurf.
When Aljurf Wi-Fi becomes active, it didn’t only give a great relief and improves the quality of life of the Aljurf crew and on workers on board. But also, gave relief to Almabrook Network Administrators primarily as the technology Ocean Technology had setup was robust enough to manage the numbers of users without compromise. With access points placed strategically around their Platform, what’s more, they could support and maintain the system remotely without worrying about ongoing issues that may occur with crew access.
Working on an oil rig in the Mediterranean Sea or a desert site in southern Libya often means long periods of separation from loved ones, friends and off-the-job interests.
though stepping onto the platform in the middle of the sea is all about facing new challenges and experiencing an extraordinary environment, the unconventional work schedules of remote site employees – also known as “rotations” - require extended periods of absence from home that can put a strain on work/life balance.
Furthermore, being separated from family and friends for long periods of time can lead remote site workers to feel is isolated and disconnected, which in turn can diminish their awareness of and attitude to risk on the job.
This is where Almabook Oil Operation and Ocean Technology core interests as socially aware companies who Focus on Improving Lives and Their Businesses at the Same Time has intersected.

Ocean Technology helped bringing better, faster and cheaper INTERNET CLOSER TO MARKET
It was well known for the Libyan telecom sectors' think tanks that Investing in broadband is investing in your community's economic future ,thus as a part of Next Generation Broadband Network program that is sponsored by the ministry of communication, the Libyan International Telecom Company has contracted with Libyan Italian Company for Digital and Infrastructure Engineering, on the execution of International Internet Gate project, which would eventually provide more fixable internet capacities for the Libyan markets, by increasing the abilities and capacities of international cables .
The project contract has been signed on 06/11/2013, which total price reaches about Euros three million, by board member from LITC, LIDA, Ministry of Communications and Informatics, and the Post, Telecommunications and Information Technology Libyan Holding Company the manager of the Italian company, and was supposed to be executed in the next year, yet due to the unstable situation on the capital city that year the project was put into withhold.
It was until Ocean Technology teamed with LIDIA and Italtel, to crack the hurdles this year, by providing its’ talented local expertise, whom in a very short timeframe, could deploy, install and commission the related cutting-edge technologies which comprise the IIGW core network in LITC’s major western pop locations.
Ocean Technology was never more proud to have had participated with teams and partners of such caliber in the implementation of one of the most important long-term infrastructure initiatives generating enormous opportunity for public and private investment in the last mile, which will firmly generate more wholesale agreements with partners and companies that are driving the high-speed Internet service deeper into communities.

Libyans finally had their new biometric passport
Ocean Technology was ready, willing and able to do what had to be done
The Libyan government had officially first unveiled the country’s new biometric passport, along with the completion of the national identity number system back on February 2013, by end of the same year many Libyans on social media were excited to see the passport project’s completion.
Beyond the scenes of that Media-Hype and While the Berlin-based German company, Bundesdruckerei were taking the necessary measures to transfer the equipment and machinery necessary for the project from Germany to the Libyan Passports authority’s headquarters in the Salah Al-Deen district of Tripoli, Ocean technology and its’ partners were taking on charge restoring and commissioning the IP network of the main data center and the rest of issuing sites,which spread all over the country in more than twenty two locations , while mentoring and job shadowing the passport Authority and National ID teams to self-carry on with the rest of locations .
And now, we are seeing how the technology, whether it is in the most indirect way or not, is actually bringing the world together, via the use of the biometric passport, and hopefully bringing peace and harmony with it as well, check the link below to see why we think of such :
Making IT Simple
Three Industry Leaders, One Shared Infrastructur.
As an Ocean Technology potential Client, you can have access to a powerful solution that was developed by Cisco and NetApp, two leaders in enterprise networking, compute, and storage, that have come together to develop a simplified, scalable, and flexible solution to support virtualized and private cloud environments. This collaboration has resulted in more efficient virtualization and cloud computing solutions and numerous jointly validated reference architectures.
FlexPod is well-suited for a variety of workload environments, including enterprise-critical applications such as Microsoft® SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint, and Hadoop. For example, a base FlexPod configuration can support 1,500 users for these four popular workloads simultaneously: virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), Microsoft Exchange, SharePoint, and SQL Server. Ocean Technology’s proposed solution provides sufficient headroom for additional workloads
