NHS Trust Enhances Healthcare with Juniper Networks
The Belfast H&SC Trust had recognized the benefits of wireless technology, but the existing network was proving increasingly difficult to manage. Most materials in a hospital have a limited shelf life and it is essential to manage stock properly and cost efficiently. The Belfast H&SC Trust therefore decided they needed a reliable and secure wireless network to support its material management system; reliability, ease of use through centralized management, and the option to extend the system were among the key criteria for the Trust.
At the start of 2005, a Juniper Networks Wireless LAN Portfolio pilot was deployed, and proving to be an overwhelming success in terms of its stability, security and manageability. The Juniper RingMaster Software allows centralized management of the system at the touch of a button.
