Custom Data Network Connects Multiple Facilities
New York, NY & Paramus, NJ (Wednesday, April 6, 2016) — When NY’s prestigious Hospital for Special Surgery needed a custom data network designed to connect multiple facilities, they turned to the region’s premiere data transport and infrastructure provider, Hudson Fiber Network (HFN) based in Paramus, NJ (http://hudsonfiber.com).
“Today’s leading healthcare facilities have a growing need for big bandwidth networks to move detailed information like test results, x-rays, and patient information within their member facilities,” explains HFN CEO Brett Diamond.
With the ongoing consolidation of healthcare service providers, many large healthcare systems need to connect and share data between hospitals, doctors’ offices, labs, clinics and other service points quickly and efficiently. This often requires a custom network design that provides low-latency (fast), high-bandwidth interconnecting numerous facilities.
“HFN is recognized as having one of the most advanced network structures in the NY/NJ/CT metro area,” comments Jason Vanrell, director of technical operations, department of information technology, Hospital for Special Surgery. “Their ability to assist us in building out our network and interconnecting our key locations made them an invaluable partner.”
