SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) is helping hospitals and healthcare services companies with its innovative network solutions to drive network connectivity and enable cloud and mobile applications and services. The common goals are to improve patient care and streamline processes by creating safe facilities that allow for fast and secure sharing of data and medical images from patient rooms and doctor offices all the way to the operating room (OR).
Leading healthcare organizations working with Extreme Networks today include Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Tasmania's Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), New York's Jacobi Medical Center, Massachusetts' Lowell General Hospital and San Luis Valley Regional Medical Center of South Central Colorado.
Extreme Networks healthcare network solution empowers hospitals, clinics, pharmaceutical providers and care facilities of all types to be more competitive and deliver excellent care.
The Extreme Networks healthcare network solution is based on high speed Ethernet that scales to 40/100GbE and offers Layer 2/3 services to create resilient, reliable performance. In addition, software functionality from ExtremeXOS® is designed to provide the robust performance and capabilities needed for everything from large cloud and data center applications to intelligent, converged enterprise edge networks.
Medical imaging expert Barco offers a fully networked digital OR supported by a capable 10GbE Extreme Network as a part of its Nexxis visual display solutions. This 'OR-over-IP' Open Fabric Ethernet approach improves patient care by enabling more advanced medical imaging in an increasingly complex environment and ensures centralized control of the entire OR. Extreme Networks 10 GbE network switch is the backbone of this digital OR system architecture ensuring distribution of this mission critical video, audio and data with near-zero latency, in and beyond the OR.
"Extreme Networks was the right choice for our digital operating room solution because of its low latency speed and reliability and service options," said Johan Stockman, VP Strategic Marketing Surgical Imaging for Barco. "We needed a next generation Ethernet fabric switch that could immediately accommodate our requirements where accuracy, availability and stunning images are the everyday expectation."
"After the switch to Extreme Networks, the network's been rock solid and we haven't had any issues. It's easy to manage, and we're able to look at it from a high level so we can anticipate future needs and troubleshoot any potential problems," said Bill Hurst, IT Project Manager/Network Administrator at CareTech Solutions. -- View Case Study
