How to Build a Network that Enables a 21st-Century Healthcare Experience


The network has never been as critical to the healthcare sector as it is today. Mobile nurse carts, smart medical imaging devices, and electronic health records (EHR) are among a plethora of healthcare technologies that depend on the network. These technologies are leading to new possibilities in healthcare management, patient and family experience, and most importantly, patient outcomes. Emerging use cases for the Internet of Things (IoT) are also showing tremendous potential in healthcare.

The success of these technologies depends on a network architecture that can support the capacity, coverage, security, and segmentation requirements unique to healthcare, while adhering to a litany of compliance standards.
