Fabric technology is a gamechanger in the healthcare industry due to its flexibility. The ability to leverage shortest path bridging (SPB), hyper-segmentation and stealth networking to simplify provisioning, network management and security is a meaningful reason why healthcare systems continue to choose Extreme Networks for their networking infrastructure.
Listen as Robert Hale, Senior Manager of Technical Engineering, Novant Health discusses how Extreme became a vendor of choice for Novant and how Fabric technology played a key role in their decision making process.
As they migrated off SONET networks, fabric technology gave Novant several new ways to connect their acute facilities to their data centers. By complementing the fabric with SD-WAN technologies, Novant found that IT efficiency increased dramatically from having dedicated on-call resources stay up all night doing repair work to dropping the on-call requirement altogether.
As a consolidating force in the industry as well, Novant has found that their choice to integrate fabric technology into their network architecture allowed for them to easily incorporate new facilities into the system while still supporting carrier services at their network layer.
