ViberDesk Pro

Interface to the VIBER system
ViberDesk Pro is a CBT (Computer Based Terminal) that creates an interactive connection between the local RTGS and the bank.
The following figure illustrates the environment of ViberDesk Pro indicating the connections among the host system of the bank, the SWIFT network and the centre of the local RTGS, the CAS. 

As it can be seen below, ViberDesk Pro is connected to both the account keeping system and the SWIFT terminal (e.g. ST400, TurboSwift Alliance, Merva etc.) of the bank.
