Beaumont Health System selects Aruba for mobile access network
Feb 24, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Aruba Networks, Inc., a provider of computer networking solutions, has announced that Beaumont Health System is using a mobile access network based on the Aruba Mobile Virtual Enterprise, or MOVE, architecture for communications and data transmission with its mobile Magnetic Resonance Imaging, or MRI, and Positron Emission Tomography, or PET, unit that serves Beaumont's community-based medical centers.
The Aruba wireless access network is used to deliver all of the images (which can number up to 300 per patient) from the unit to the hospital's picture archiving and communication system (PACS). It also carries IP voice traffic, not limited to the hospitals and clinics themselves, the company said.
Beaumont worked with Aruba Networks partner Delta Networks to deploy a mobile access solution that would take the place of the physical network connections. With Delta's help, the hospital deployed a centrally-located Aruba 3200 Mobility Controller and Aruba AP-124s with external antennas deployed at the locations the mobile MRI/PET unit serves, the company added.
"Now we can see more patients in a day and we no longer get calls saying that the mobile unit and the PACS are disconnected," said Mark Taylor, communication network manager at Beaumont. "The workflow has been greatly simplified and the unit is more productive."
