Woburn Pediatrics Deploys ADTRAN’s Virtual Wireless LAN Solution To Support Mobile Electronic Medical Record System

Stocks in this article: ADTN

ADTRAN®, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of converged access and unified business solutions, today announced that Woburn Pediatric Associates has deployed ADTRAN’s virtual wireless LAN (vWLAN ®) solution with ADTRAN’s Bluesocket ® 1800 series 802.11n access points, to help physicians, nurses and staff access patient medical information from any treatment room within Woburn Pediatrics’ two locations.

An early adopter of an electronic medical record (EMR) system, Woburn Pediatric Associates uses the system to provide digital storage of patient charts and to track patient histories, medications and test results. At Woburn Pediatrics, the physicians and nurses access the EMR system on mobile tablets to document every encounter in a patient’s medical record. This real-time access to medical records has proven to reduce medical record errors and enhance patient care.

As Woburn Pediatrics’ practice has grown, the number of tablets in use at any given time has grown as well. It quickly became clear that the existing hardware, controller-based WLAN could not scale to meet the practice’s needs. Having deployed VMware, Woburn Pediatrics understood the numerous benefits of virtualization and decided to investigate a virtual WLAN solution as an alternative. Woburn Pediatrics liked the fact that ADTRAN’s vWLAN brings the power of virtualization to Wi-Fi networks since it adds greater scale, capacity and innovation through software rather than additional hardware.

“Our legacy WLAN solution could not meet our needs. Facing a ‘rip-and-replace’ upgrade, I decided to evaluate other Wi-Fi solutions,” said Wayne Jenness, IT manager at Woburn Pediatrics. “My ideal solution would provide future-proof scalability, cost-effective access and ease of use. ADTRAN’s vWLAN provided everything I was looking for, plus it can run as a virtual machine on our existing VMware infrastructure.”

“Woburn Pediatrics wisely leveraged their investment in VMware by deploying vWLAN to scale their Wi-Fi network environment; the deployment showcases how virtualization is positively impacting Wi-Fi networks,” stated Chris Koeneman, vice president of sales for ADTRAN’s Bluesocket Business Group. “The cost efficiencies and maximized resource utilization provided by virtualization are very compelling and as a result, more and more organizations are embracing ADTRAN’s vWLAN to bring these advantages to their Wi-Fi network.”
