ANDOVER, Mass., July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, today announced new validation for the company's OneFabric architecture through its customer, University Medical Center Southern Nevada (UMC). Enterasys enables UMC to deliver a stable, secure and available network environment at all times, which is essential for the medical center to thrive and keep up with industry trends such as BYOD.

Enterasys has found that in order to keep up with technologies like virtualization, cloud and mobile computing, IT managers, particularly in the healthcare industry, need a policy-based approach to networking. Enterasys continuously provides its customers with the tools and technology to tackle technologies like virtualization, cloud and mobile through its OneFabric Architecture, and most recently with its release of a BYOD solution, Mobile IAM.

"Enterasys is our chosen network provider because of their commitment to our mission," said Ernie McKinley, CIO of UMC. "Enterasys is a true partner, not just a vendor. They are a part of my team and the UMC family for delivering virtualized solutions and services to make our datacenters more efficient."

"We believe that the network needs to serve the singular purpose of optimizing the data center resources to roll out new applications and new business processes at a very rapid rate," said Ram Appalaraju, vice president of marketing, Enterasys. "This means having a singular view from a virtualized data center environment to the device user which is very transparent and provides a high degree of granular visibility to not only manage the environment, but optimize it to deliver a best-in-class user experience."

UMC's success is demonstrated in the new IT Briefing Center video, Optimizing Your Network from the Data Center to the Mobile Edge. In the video featuring UMC CIO Ernie McKinley, Gartner analyst Mark Fabbi, and Enterasys VP of Marketing Ram Appalaraju, the main focus is on the importance for IT managers to have granular visibility into their data centers, providing a single view across the network in order to overcome the challenges associated with virtualization and cloud.

Enterasys will be demonstrating its OneFabric Data Center solutions at VMworld 2012 in San Francisco, CA, August 26-30. Please stop by booth #325 to learn more.
