Cerner Partners with Global Capacity to Deploy Cerner Skybox Connect

To provide highly secure network solutions to hospitals, healthcare professionals and service providers, Cerner (News - Alert) Corporation, a healthcare IT company focused on optimizing care delivery for healthcare organizations around the world, has joined a partnership with Global Capacity to deploy Cerner Skybox Connect, a high-availability private network for the healthcare industry.

The Cerner Skybox Connect Network is a multiphase project provides exclusive private network to support the growing requirements of the healthcare industry. This project is expected to be completed by the end of 2012. It provides a network infrastructure and procurement service that provides access to HIPAA-compliant health care technologies efficiently, reliably and securely.

Tony Linville, vice president, Infrastructure Services for Cerner Corporation said in a statement, "When Global Capacity presented its recommendation for a scalable, private, high speed network, with redundancy and accessibility for our community, we were intrigued. 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.”

Cerner Skybox Connect is inspired by Global Capacity's One Marketplace Access Exchange - an automated pricing and procurement platform for global access network solutions. It will enable Cerner to deliver the entire Cerner Skybox suite of cloud-based services such as messaging, remote desktop, storage and protection.

Patrick Shutt, vice chairman of Global Capacity said, “Cerner Skybox Connect aims to transform the way healthcare organizations do business; it is a comprehensive IT infrastructure platform that helps companies fulfill overall network requirements efficiently and dynamically.”
