Lowell General Hospital Selects Aruba Networks Wireless LAN To Address BYOD And Increasing Number Of Wireless Medical Devices While Meeting Stringent Healthcare Security Requirements

“Increasingly, heart monitors and other medical devices are going wireless, crucial patient data is being digitized and there is a growing need for both employees and equipment to be mobile,” said Greg Panagiotopoulos, Technology Manager for Lowell General Hospital. “With our new Aruba WLAN, we’re confident that we can meet the current demands of our users as well the future needs we’ll encounter as the number of wireless-enabled medical devices escalates and as our facilities expand.”

Working with Akibia, a Zensar company and a leading provider of Infrastructure Management solutions based in Westborough, Mass., Lowell General Hospital is deploying the new Aruba 802.11n network across two campuses and a new six-story tower. The new network will include over 350 Aruba AP-105 and AP-125 access points (APs), which are designed for maximum deployment flexibility in high-density environments, and two Aruba 6000 Series Mobility Controllers, which deliver a wide range of network services to large campus networks. Lowell General Hospital is also using Aruba’s AirWave network management system to provide enterprise-wide clarity and control through real-time monitoring, historical reporting and troubleshooting capabilities that are important for enabling a secure BYOD environment.

Lowell General Hospital will also use 30 Remote Access Points (RAPs) to deliver high-speed, secure network services to remote locations such as contract physician offices and hospital executive homes.

“The Aruba RAPs are ideal for securely connecting small- to medium-sized physician offices and executive homes to the network,” continued Panagiotopoulos. “Our physicians and executives are more efficient when they can access critical information and enterprise resources from their own practice or home. In addition, our IT department loves how easy the Aruba RAPs are to configure and administer, and they appreciate being able to push changes such as security upgrades and encryption schemes out to the remote sites quickly and without the need for a technician visit.”
