Arista Showcases Cloud Networking for Healthy Hospitals at HIMSS 2020

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Arista Networks (NYSE:ANET) today announced participation in the Healthy Hospital HIMSS Interoperability Showcase, a demonstration for secure, reliable hospital infrastructures. The companies, together, will emphasize mission critical networking requirements so that clinicians can focus on patient care free of application or network productivity issues.

Arista’s cognitive approach to networking, is built on cloud principles of availability, agility, automation and analytics, to deliver a combination of inference and real-time action. What this means for healthcare infrastructure is a network that:

  • Ensures access to mission critical health care applications.
  • Automatically prioritizes and optimizes patient monitoring, imaging, and EHR applications.
  • Cognitive edge for WiFi identifies healthcare clinicians/nurses kiosks running EHR applications and automatically prioritizes network access for those applications.
  • Provides a secure network infrastructure enabling surgical over-the-air prevention, automatically and accurately creates alerts and classifies wireless threats from hackers. With dedicated wireless intrusion prevention (WIPS) sensor, threats are detected and blocked instantly.
  • Minimizes hospital network downtime with cognitive WiFi AI and machine learning automated network problem resolution to improve the patient experience.
  • Quickly identifies and isolates with real time location services critical healthcare devices- EKG machines, incubators, etc.
