How Passive Optical LAN is Transforming the Healthcare Industry
In his article published on Health IT Outcomes, Cemil Canturk, Senior Marketing Manager Optical LAN at Nokia and the Association for Passive Optical LAN (APOLAN) Member, writes:
“Technology is a crucial factor in improving the efficiency and quality of the healthcare industry. When implemented correctly it can deliver the healthcare services needed to positively impact individuals, professionals and organizations.
However, the proliferation of medical and non-medical applications brings new challenges for IT. The “business as usual” approach in healthcare facilities, results in increased complexity of network infrastructure and cabling, increased power consumption and operational costs.
A new solution, called Passive Optical LAN (POL), allows healthcare facilities to achieve improved efficiency at lower cost, green buildings and more efficient spaces by providing a future-proof and high-speed infrastructure to keep pace with today’s healthcare innovations.”
Canturk goes on to discuss the importance of relieving the reliable connectivity pressures healthcare facilities face, setting up the infrastructure for tomorrow, what it means for the healthcare provider, and how Passive Optical LAN can solve these issues.
