Better communication means better care. When clinicians communicate easily, they can diagnose and treat patients more quickly. Clinicians get lab results as soon as they’re ready. They can easily access vast medical databases from their smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. Ultimately, patient outcomes improve.

Whether clinicians are communicating through video or voice, their hospital wireless network needs to constantly deliver optimal performance. SecurEdge Network enhances clinical communication by providing:

Reliable, consistent Wi-Fi coverage

With SecurEdge Networks, clinicians are assured of Wi-Fi coverage, regardless of where they go. We deliver fast, secure roaming, so that even voice and video communications continue without pause, even across IP subnets.

Application-awareness for converged devices

Smartphones support both voice and data, but voice calls can drop if quality of service (QoS) is enforced by device instead of by application. With SecurEdge's application-aware QoS, hospitals can identify and prioritize latency-sensitive voice and video communications over less critical traffic.

Secure communications across many different mobile device types

SecurEdge’s role-based access control enforces corporate security policies per user, even across multiple devices and SSIDs. This same role-based security ensures that mobile devices on the network are owned by the clinician or hospital.

Connect remote specialists to the hospital

The cloud-based Virtual Branch Network (VBN)solution from SecurEdge Networks extends secure enterprise-class networking to all users, including remote specialists, interpreters and physicians working from home. With our VBN, services like content security and user-access policies are handled in the data center. At the same time specialists get immediate, secure remote access to the vital resources as if they are on-site.
