Extreme Networks, a leader in cloud networking, and Cloud Solutions, a leading provider of healthcare IT services, recently announced that they will expand their partnership, enabling Cloud Solutions’ customers to leverage advanced wireless and fabric networking solutions from Extreme to better support modernised patient care in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The expanded partnership between Cloud Solutions and Extreme will support the development of additional state-of-the-art healthcare facilities that offer fully paperless operations, digital patient records, virtual collaboration tools, physical security devices and access controls, IP telephony, mobile medical devices, digital handheld devices, and a host of guest convenience services such as IPTVs and feature-rich mobile applications.
The expanded partnership creates the opportunity for Extreme and Cloud Solutions to deploy secure Wi-Fi 6E connectivity across future healthcare projects to help medical facilities provide best-in-class patient care by providing a solid foundation to run next-generation medical applications. Tapping into the 6GHz wireless spectrum will allow hospitals in KSA to better support a growing number of IoT devices and medical devices across healthcare facilities, improving performance, efficiency and experiences for staff, patients and IT administrators.
Healthcare institutions will be able to harness the power of Extreme Fabric Connect, the only true enterprise fabric managed through the cloud and the industry’s simplest way to increase network security through hyper-segmentation. Organisations can leverage Fabric Connect to easily scale network services as needed, setting up services within minutes through zero-touch provisioning, increasing security for sensitive patient data and supporting improved patient care as well as experiences across campus and branch locations.
In addition, the partnership is aligned with the Saudi Vision 2030, as both companies commit to enhancing the Saudi healthcare system to meet the goals set out for elevated patient care and enhanced digital services and innovations.
Cloud Solutions and Extreme Networks are already collaborating on network deployments for several leading healthcare customers, including Dr. Sulaiman Al-Habib Medical Group (HMG), one of the largest providers of comprehensive healthcare services in the MENA region.
