Net Optics Puts Hospital Networks on a Wellness Plan with Intelligent Network Access Solutions
New Net Optics Solutions Improve Healthcare Network Visibility, Ensuring Nonstop Access to Vital Medical Records and Data
ATLANTA / HIMSS CONFERENCE – March 1, 2010 – Net Optics, Inc., the global leader in intelligent network access solutions, today announced three new solutions aimed at improving healthcare network performance and enabling healthcare’s digital future. The new Net Optics Director Pro, Gig Zero Delay Tap, and 40G Fiber Tap form the foundation for a comprehensive monitoring access platform provide this key capability of traffic visibility that ensures continuous network operations and optimal delivery of health services.
Information and communications technologies are changing the way medicine is practiced, driving down costs and increasing the quality of patient care across the board. All of the new digital health initiatives depend on the foundation of a rock solid, high-performance network. With medical and healthcare services depending heavily on network operations, it is imperative that healthcare organizations constantly monitor and ensure proper security of their network. The network wellness program means that systems and operators must be able to monitor all of the network traffic at all times, being alert to performance bottlenecks, security breaches, data leakage, and regulatory compliance. Net Optics network access solutions give healthcare IT professionals 100 percent visibility of network traffic without interfering with that traffic or introducing a potential point of failure.
Net Optics’ solutions make monitoring network traffic more efficient and easier for existing monitoring tools. Director Pro includes Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) capabilities to more efficiently filter and route information to the correct monitoring and security tools. Dynamic load balancing capabilities ensure that no monitoring tool is over utilized, balancing the amount of information sent to each monitoring appliance. Gig Zero Delay Taps prevent network downtime by preserving the network link during loss of power. Utilizing this technology, healthcare organizations can always count on information being available. With speed of transfer becoming increasingly important to healthcare systems, the new 40G tap allows organizations to take advantage of increased speeds, by providing a monitoring conduit capable of processing information at higher speeds.
“When network operation is mission critical to saving a life, it is important to make certain healthcare organizations not only have the proper infrastructure to deliver medical information, but that they also have the tools to guarantee proper network operation,” said Bob Shaw, President and CEO of Net Optics. “Healthcare IT investments are protected and ROI is greatly increased when a monitoring access platform built is an integral part of the medical information network. Net Optics strives to provide the healthcare industry with up-to-date tools that meet the requirements of their ever-evolving technology requirements.”
