On March 22, 2011 Healthcare Networks was the focus of the C-MUG presentation.
Terry Slattery (CCIE #1026 and Principal Consultant) and Steve Meyer (Senior Consultant) discussed healthcare network requirements at this C-MUG session. They have found that the major difference in a healthcare network from a typical enterprise network is in the highly specialized applications, which range from Electronic Medical Records to telemedicine. There are also many applications in common with other enterprise networks, such as electronic mail, collaboration, video conferencing, telepresence, and mobile connectivity. At this C-MUG meeting, they took a look at what they had found in healthcare networks (the causes of network pain) and their operational requirements (the treatments).
They discussed how resiliency, high performance, low latency, ease of troubleshooting, and operational awareness are factors that apply to both healthcare and to enterprise networks.
