January 26, 2009 Gruppo BNP Paribas (Zurich) has selected the networked video recording platforms and management software for advanced security from March Networks (Ottawa) in its retail branches across Italy. The bank will also deploy the Company's embedded video analytics to extend its monitoring capability in select locations.

According to March Networks, the solution will enable BNL to increase efficiency by centralizing its video network management and security operations. BNL expects the deployment, which it initiated in 2008 working with systems integrator Niscayah (Stockholm), to reach approximately 400 retail locations by the end of the fiscal year.
