SUNNYVALE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aruba Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ:ARUN), a global leader in 802.11n wireless LANs and secure mobility solutions, and Motion Computing, a leading provider of integrated mobile computing solutions, today announced a certified healthcare solution to reliably deliver unified communications services and data access at the point-of-care. The solution uses Aruba’s adaptive 802.11n and Virtual Branch Network (VBN) technologies to deliver the quality-of-service, security, and remote access needed to simultaneously support voice, video and data applications on Motion C5 Mobile Clinical Assistants (MCA) and Motion Clinical Workstations (MCW-200).
“Aruba’s 802.11n solutions deliver assured access to latency-sensitive communications services, regardless of where the clinician is working. That makes possible a wide range of new opportunities to improve patient care and reduce staff workload.”
“Unlike general data access services, point-of-care voice and video communications are latency-sensitive and require special handling,” said Manav Khurana, Aruba’s Head of Industry Marketing. “Our high-speed 802.11n wireless LANs are application-aware, and automatically adapt themselves to deliver the bandwidth, airtime, and quality-of-service required by unified communication applications at the point-of-care. The resulting wire-like performance enables Motion’s platforms to take clinical productivity to a new level.”
The Motion C5 is a hospital-grade slate tablet PC and the healthcare industry’s first Mobile Clinical Assistant,MCA. The tool improves clinical productivity, optimizes electronic medical record (EMR) utilization, and enhances clinician efficiency by enabling the use of technology directly at the point of care. The flexible MCW-200 workstation improves communication and collaboration involving complex work-flows and information-rich content, delivers up to 15 hours of battery life, and is available with integrated voice and video support. Aruba’s Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology improves the wireless performance of both devices by automatically optimizing Wi-Fi band selection, load balancing, and power levels in real-time, an important function in a healthcare facility’s dynamically changing RF environment.
“Providing unified communications and automated patient data management at the point-of-care requires that the Wi-Fi network follow in lock-step as clinicians with C5 or MCW-200 devices roam through a hospital campus or satellite clinic,” said Mike Stinson, Motion Computing’s Vice President of Marketing. “Aruba’s 802.11n solutions deliver assured access to latency-sensitive communications services, regardless of where the clinician is working. That makes possible a wide range of new opportunities to improve patient care and reduce staff workload.”
