Concord Hospital Selects Juniper

SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- Juniper Networks, Inc. (NASDAQ: JNPR), the leader in high-performance networking, today announced that it has been selected by Concord Hospital, a regional medical center with the second busiest acute care hospital in the state of New Hampshire, to provide a high-performance network infrastructure with best-in-class application acceleration, routing, remote access and security solutions. The unmatched functional integration of the Juniper Networks WX application acceleration platform, Secure Services Gateway (SSG) firewall/VPN appliances with Unified Threat Management (UTM) and Secure Access (SA) 4000 SSL VPN enabled Concord Hospital to increase the performance of business-critical applications by 40 to 50 percent, secure wireless VoIP communications in its emergency department, and provide secure remote network access for employees anytime and anywhere using a standard Web browser.

In healthcare, the importance of secure, real-time access to applications goes well beyond the need to expedite employee productivity or quickly meet business requirements – it literally can mean the difference between life and death,” said Mark Starry, manager of IT infrastructure and security at Concord Hospital. “Like most high-performance businesses, we need to ensure our health professionals can work without network interruption, regardless of their location. Concord Hospital focuses on applying the newest medical science and technology to improve patient care and we view the network as a critical component for our organization in delivering exceptional service.”
