Don’t Forget Your WAN
Wide Area Network (WAN) managers face bandwidth and connectivity challenges as more healthcare users work from remote locations. VoIP, unified communications, and improved security also place new demands on the network. WAN optimization helps you organize and prioritize your network traffic, giving priority to latency-sensitive services, including VoIP and video, and delivering noticeable performance improvements.
When investing in a network to support mobility, consider technologies like Network Traffic Monitoring, Network QoS, and Wide Area Application Servers (WAAS). Add network security technologies such as SSL or IPSEC virtual private networks (VPNs), VLAN segmentation and control, endpoint authentication (802.1x, NAC, NAP), and denial of service protection. Ideally, you should create several layers of defense.
