Wired And Wireless Hospital Solution

Wired And Wireless Hospital Solution

Draeger Medical is using Packeteer's PacketShaper system to converge wired and wireless patient monitoring and hospital clinical and administrative networks under its Infinity OneNet Architecture. Headquartered in Luebeck, Germany, with U.S. headquarters in Telford, PA, Draeger Medical employs some 6,000 people worldwide with US-based R&D and production facilities in Telford, PA, and Danvers, MA.

Infinity OneNet is a breakthrough architecture that creates a single, seamless wired-wireless LAN/WAN infrastructure, allowing hospitals to add a wireless patient monitoring system to an existing network. Infinity OneNet reduces costs by simplifying network administration and fully leverages and protects a hospital's current network investment. The solution conforms to industry standards, including IEEE 802.3 Ethernet, 802.11b wireless LANs and 802.11Q virtual LANs, allowing it to be implemented in most environments. The quality of service (QoS) needed to support patient monitoring is provided by a strategic solution between Draeger Medical and Packeteer.
