Global Capacity, a telecommunications information and logistics company, recently selected Cerner Skybox Connect from Cerner (News - Alert) Corporation, a healthcare IT company. The solution offers a network infrastructure and procurement service that provides access to HIPAA-compliant healthcare technologies efficiently, reliably and securely.
Cerner Skybox reduces support costs by removing the expenses associated with ongoing hardware and software updates. Moreover, it ensures data security with secure, off-site data protection that complies with regulations for healthcare data.
The companies can improve connectivity to users through redundant national network and increase flexibility to meet future business needs with unlimited capacity and the ability to allocate storage space as needed.
"When Global Capacity presented its recommendation for a scalable, private, high speed network, with redundancy and accessibility for our community, we were intrigued," commented Tony Linville, vice president of Infrastructure Services for Cerner Corporation. "When the Global Capacity team illustrated how they would migrate us from our existing ATM / Frame infrastructure, and add value to our network and clients by decreasing operating expenses, increasing productivity and allowing us to present a competitive offering to the marketplace, we were sold. The reduction in network latency and reliability has exceeded our expectations, delivering superior service to our clients."
The Cerner Skybox Connect Network, a multi-phase project, is expected to be complete by the end of 2012. It provides a multi-point private network with over 1,500 local access connections throughout the United States.
"Cerner Skybox Connect aims to transform the way health care organizations do business; it is a comprehensive IT infrastructure platform that helps companies fulfill overall network requirements efficiently and dynamically," added Patrick Shutt, vice chairman of Global Capacity. "Global Capacity presented a new network design that lowers operating costs while providing Cerner clients access to a more cost-effective and efficient communications network that enables the way hospitals, health care professionals, and service providers work together."
