The Benefits Are Clear

Healthcare facilities have undergone rapid changes in recent years, but their copper networks have remained the same in terms of equipment, cabling and architecture for a decades. It is time for healthcare LANs to evolve to meet the high bandwidth and high availability demands of life-saving services and the Internet of Things explosion.

Optical LANs ensures maximum network reliability that is imperative for physicians and hospitals engaged in critical care over the network. It is a more defensible network architecture for the greatest protection of patient electronic medical files. Optical LAN is the smart choice for hospital high-speed connectivity for patient, family, staff and doctors.

Quick Facts

 

  • Provide military-grade security for improved HIPAA compliance.

 

  • Remove thousands of pounds of cabling plastics from healthcare facilities, improving smoke load and sustainability.

 

  • Healthcare IT staff can exceed the overarching operational efficiencies, network up-time and security goals.

 

 

  • Medical diagnostic equipment works better with a fiber-based network because there is no electromagnetic interference.

 

  • Reduces or eliminates HEPA tenting, which is intrusive, disruptive and expensive for operations.

 

  • Patients experience high performance and high availability access to wired, Wi-Fi and cellular DAS services over fiber.

 

People

 

Patient satisfaction rises when they know their care, in part, is provided for over a reliable, secure and high-performing network infrastructure. Patients and their families are also able to access broadband services anywhere in the facilities via wired, Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity. Hospital administration benefits from the reduced operating costs of the simple, scalable fiber-based network. Medical staff enjoys the reliable connectivity that powers the applications and health records upon which they rely to provide quality patient care.

 

Network

 

Tellabs Optical LAN provides greater bandwidth and lasts longer than traditional copper-based networks. Optical LAN has greater gigabit Ethernet access density with far less cabling. The solution delivers superior high availability for critical care and increased security for electronic protected health information (ePHI). It has reduced impact of electro-magnetic interference (EMI), which is important around highly sensitive medical equipment.

 

The solution provides more flexibility for network moves, adds and changes so retro-fits, expansions and upgrades are less intrusive on patient care. Optical LAN requires less space for a main data center and can eliminate the need for telecom rooms as well as reduce telecom enclosures. All services and networks can be converged on one fiber-based network for more efficient LAN management across the hospital campus and remote facilities.

Operations

 

Optical LANs unify healthcare services and networks while reducing costs, improving network reliability and increasing security. The solution offers unique benefits relative to HIPAA protocols, PCI compliance, infection control (reduce HEPA tenting) and TIA-1179 cabling.

 

Network managers can provision over fiber scalable interactive patient care, patient monitoring, entertainment, nurse call, clinical info systems, access control, security, surveillance, automation, safety, environmental, CCTV, AV and all forms of video. It’s the smart choice for full service hospitals that need reliable network coverage in waiting rooms, nurse stations, patient rooms, exam rooms, emergency care, operating rooms, intensive care, recovery, diagnostics radiology, therapy, cafeteria, administration, physician, pharmacy and affiliated clinics.
