Rex Healthcare Deploys Aruba Networks Wireless Infrastructure To Enable Key Medical Applications, Address BYOD

Stocks in this article: ARUN

Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN) today announced that Rex Healthcare, a member of UNC Health Care in Raleigh, North Carolina, has deployed a wireless network based on the Aruba Mobile Virtual Enterprise (MOVE) architecture to deliver secure and reliable access to the organization’s Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and wireless patient monitoring devices. The network also supports Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) by enabling employees to connect to the network on their personal smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.

After evaluating a number of wireless network vendors, Rex Healthcare found that Aruba offered the most cost-effective, easy-to-manage solution for their needs.

“Aruba’s solution, with the AirWave Management System and centralized controllers, made deployment and management easy and allowed us to build the redundancy we needed into the solution,” said Bryan Safrit, Sr. Network Architect for Rex Healthcare.

Rex Healthcare found that the Aruba solution was also ideal for handling their BYOD challenges. “We can use the device fingerprinting enabled by Aruba OS to distinguish easily between, for example, a credentialed doctor using an iPhone to access critical patient information and a guest in the waiting room, watching Netflix on his or her iPad,” Safrit added.

Accommodating the growing number of wireless medical devices accessing Rex Healthcare’s network including blood glucose meters, specimen collection devices, EKG equipment, PACS transmission equipment and IV pumps, was also a key driver for the network upgrade. Additionally, Rex offers a wireless guest network used by patients, guests and co-workers. To satisfy all of these needs, Rex deployed four Aruba 3000 and 6000 Series Mobility Controllers, 408 Aruba access points including the AP-125s, AP-105s, AP-93s and AP-135s, and the AirWave Management System.

Using the Airwave Management System has enabled Rex’s IT team to gain valuable insight into how co-workers and guests are using the wireless network. Information, including the number of users on the network, the types of devices being used to access the network and the location of the devices, can be tracked at all times, allowing IT to troubleshoot and resolve helpdesk issues much faster and more efficiently.
