LAS VEGAS, Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, today announced continued momentum in the healthcare space. In the past year Enterasys has signed up over 360 new healthcare customers, providing them seamless mobility and support for clinical workflow applications through unified wired and wireless networks. As part of its participation at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS 2012) Conference & Exhibition (booth 3265), Enterasys will be demonstrating how its recently announced OneFabric Edge architecture provides a purpose-built architecture to simplify edge networking to support mobile application delivery and help healthcare organizations improve the overall availability of care while maintaining appropriate access control to data and services.
The healthcare environment presents users with unique challenges from a networking perspective, with its diverse set of clinical applications, medical devices and back office systems, its ever-changing patient and provider population, along with an increasing need to monitor their status and meet regulations in maintaining their electronic records even when mobile.
"Our networking solutions enable healthcare organizations to dramatically improve both the care-giver and patient experiences in an environment of ever-reduced IT budgets," said Bob Nilsson, director of Healthcare Solutions Marketing, Enterasys Networks. "Healthcare is a top vertical market for Enterasys and our customers benefit immensely from our reliable, easy-to-manage OneFabric framework."
Enterasys has developed partnerships with vendors such as Polycom, Ascom, Aeroscout, and Ekahau, adding value to healthcare organizations' networks with robust WLAN voice and location services. In combination with partner solutions, Enterasys Network Access Control (NAC) technology is helping healthcare providers solve their most critical issues when it comes to complying with industry regulations such as HIPAA and Meaningful Use. Enterasys' approach through its OneFabric Ready Alliance Program aligns best-of-breed innovative technology partners to provide flexible and interoperable IT infrastructure solutions with lowered costs, removing the traditional application service delivery impediments driven by many single-sourced vendor's proprietary solutions.
As a Diamond Sponsor of HIMSS, Enterasys Networks will present two Knowledge Centers during the event on two healthcare megatrends, mobile and cloud. The Mobile Health Knowledge Center will display products and services that provide the ability, via mobile devices or application solutions, to deliver care, enhance workflow and make informed care decisions. As part of the Cloud Computing Knowledge Center customer case studies will illustrate products and services that provide the ability to understand networking, virtualization, storage and security aspects of cloud computing.
