Information communications and technology is changing the way hospitals use computers and networks. Hospitals are using new technologies and merging formerly separate networks to help physicians and medical services reach more people, more conveniently, more efficiently.
In today’s complex medical environment, hospitals need a modern infrastructure with higher bandwidth and simpler network Operation and Maintenance . Optimizing networks using new technologies such as Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and Agile Controller is paramount:
1.Diverse user groups need hybrid wired/wireless access, intranet and extranet services, local and remote hospital services, and focused medical services2. Networks running 24/7 need virtualization, SDN, and wireless technologies for in-hospital or remote medical services3. Security must improve through the use of borderless networks
