Shanghai Punan Hospital introduced a new network system which offers a high availability and enables data, voice and video convergence applications.


  • Punan Hospital has three buildings situated in different locations in the district that needed to be connected
  • The hospital needed to install an active/active virtualization data center for their server farm
  • In addition, there was a requirement for full wireless coverage throughout all areas of the hospital




  • The high availability of the network system enables data, voice and video convergence applications
  • Having a unified access policy for both wired and wireless networks creates an improved synergy of communication, data and voice, in all areas of the hospital
  • The Access Guardian solution provides powerful and simple access control, with a User Network Profile policy, creating a highly reliable network structure
  • The solutions implemented have reduced operational costs by 30%
  • Thanks to now having secure and consistent wired and wireless internet access, staff and patients are benefiting from the high availability and improved performance of Punan Hospital’s network

"Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise’s wireless unified access solution not only ensured high security protection, but also significantly reduced our operational costs. This shortens the duration of consultations, while providing prompt and effective service to the patients and staff at the hospital. "
