Doctors are bringing mobile devices to the workplace at an alarming pace and are seeking to use them
in patient care. Unrestricted usage could jeopardize private patient information as well as place an
unacceptable burden on the network and IT resources. Similarly, both patients and guests request to use
their personal wireless devices while they are in the hospital. All of these devices potentially share a
network environment with critical hospital wired and wireless devices including location tracking systems,
telemetry, and biomed devices; each with their independent needs for security, quality of service, data access,
and bandwidth. How does an IT organization provide the flexible resources required to manage a comprehensive BYOD
strategy while maintain costs, control, and security?

With Enterasys Mobile IAM as part of the OneFabric architecture, network resources are allocated based on up
to 50 different considerations, including user, device type, location, and application. Mobile IAM dynamically
maintains a list of authorized users, devices, and locations to provide zero-effort onboarding and predictable,
secure application delivery.
A doctor can get high bandwidth to his iPad for VDI and video and securely check on patient data.
Medical devices will get high priority and the reliable bandwidth that they need.
Guests can easily log on to the network, but their bandwidth will be controlled and they will get no access to hospital data and devices.
Healthcare organizations are increasingly dependent on best in class technology for addressing the demands of critical patient workflows in order
to provide the visibility, control, automation and flexibility to seamlessly support Meaningful Use initiatives. OneFabric from Enterasys provides
all of these capabilities in an easily managed single pane of glass, without putting additional demands on the hospital’s limited IT resources.

Stable Infrastructure to Deliver Critical Healthcare Applications
Purpose-built to support clinical workflows, OneFabric delivers a consistently positive user
experience for caregivers, patients and guests all on the same network, while also guaranteeing
SLAs for critical applications. Whether it’s providing physician access to EMR (Electronic Medical Records)
from any location with any device, seamless biomedical device support such as wireless infusion pumps,
or toll quality IP voice communications, OneFabric allows caregivers to more effectively collaborate
and provide faster and better care.
Leveraging the OneFabric pervasive wireless network, healthcare institutions are able to deploy Real-time Location
Services (RTLS) to track patients, infants and staff throughout the entire hospital or campus, improving safety and
peace of mind for clinical staff, patients and their families and enhancing the overall quality of care and patient
satisfaction. Hospitals can also use OneFabric-enabled RTLS solutions to perform asset management and temperature
and humidity monitoring.
Toll quality voice and broadcast quality videos are increasingly integral to healthcare workflows. The
Enterasys solution delivers consistently better than toll-quality voice (MOS score of 4.0 or higher)
even in unpredictable environments over a large coverage area. Enterasys wireless LAN solutions have been
proven to deliver sustained high performance of over 32 HD video streams through a single AP.
Reliability and security are of utmost importance when communicating with wired and wireless biomedical
devices. Wireless telemetry and infusion devices in particular not only provide the patient with mobility,
but enable staff to efficiently monitor and treat patients. The Enterasys OneFabric solution provides both
the highest level of security when communicating with biomedical devices and fine grain control over device
Included as part of the Meaningful Use criteria, Computerized Physician Order-Entry (CPOE) is an important component in improving the quality of patient healthcare by streamlining processes for clinicians, minimizing order entry errors, providing automation and improving communication and collaboration among the health care team. The OneFabric architectures provides the stable and secure infrastructure needed for the communication of CPOE, allowing clinicians to take bedside notes, captured in real-time, with no manual data entry by other staff or after a patient visit.
Many healthcare organizations are looking to deploy Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) initiatives to enable application delivery. Purpose-built for virtualization, OneFabric provides the stable, high-quality infrastructure to enable healthcare providers to realize the benefits of lower cost of ownership, simplified management and greater control of its networked computers – without compromising the caregiver and patient experience.
