  • Need for highly available wired and wireless networks to meet the needs of an increasingly digital hospital with increasing numbers of connected devices
  • Continued pressure on cost as public and private insurance companies look to save money
  • Ensuring clinical employee satisfaction and patient safety




  • Local area networking using a combination of chassis and virtual chassis products to provide exceptional availability and capacity
  • Ubiquitous wireless that can provide the capacity and coverage required by the growing number of wireless clinical and non-clinical devices
  • Single, massively scalable open voice platform that serves every need: digital, IP, analog and wireless users, in some cases integrated with nurse call

"Advocate Health Care will definitely consider Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise for inclusion in future projects because of the proven track record of reliability."
