Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital selects Spectralink for communications

By

The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne (RCH) has selected purpose-built, enterprise-grade clinical Android device Spectralink to be the forefront of its unified communications strategy.

With more than 6,000 staff, 21 wards and 350 beds, the RCH has selected Spectralink Versity to deliver a unified communication platform along with SOTI mobile device management (MDM) and the Olinqua IGNITE digital enablement platform that will let the RCH staff provide better care for the children of Victoria and their families at the point of care.

Unified communications and security distributor Wavelink - which distributes Spectralink in Australia - says Spectralink Versity is a purpose-built, enterprise-grade clinical Android device that has a consumer look and feel, offering users “the familiarity of a consumer device with the added features of ruggedised design, enterprise network connectivity, shared devices, hot swappable battery, dedicated alarm button and integrated barcode scanner, which are essential for the hospital environment”.

“The RCH selected Spectralink Versity as it provided a unified, well rounded platform that encompasses integration, hardware capability and performance. First and foremost is the compliance with the hospital’s Epic electronic medical records (EMR), which enabled full utilisation of all of the functions,” said Adrian Hutchinson, chief nursing information officer, manager clinical technology, The Royal Children’s Hospital.

“The RCH then layered in additional use cases and applications including unified communications and will add more applications as the platform is implemented” Hutchinson said.

Ilan Rubin, managing director, Wavelink, said, “The strategy involved bringing all the hospital’s communication together, providing full integration into the various platforms not only for clinical staff but also for facility operations and allied health providers.

“The process involved running various proofs of concept, which demonstrated the strategy would result in better care for patients and their families while reducing the load on staff and increasing efficiency. By combining purpose-built smart devices with healthcare-specific applications this delivered a true connected health experience.”

Wavelink worked with one of its partners, ArchiTech Network and Communications Solutions (ArchiTech), to deliver the successful proof of concept, design, integration and solution deployment into the RCH.

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
