Rome's Largest Hospital Modernizes Patient Care Using 3Com Voice and Data Systems
Founded in 1926, San Camillo Forlanini is Rome's largest hospital and considered by many to be the biggest in Europe. San Camillo Forlanini improved its network performance in 2000 by standardizing its campus on 3Com Fast Ethernet switches. This network gave the hospital the reliable connectivity it needed, but required additional bandwidth to support today's cutting-edge healthcare application. Camillo Forlanini chose a 3Com Gigabit Ethernet voice and data network based on the Switch 7700, XRN technology, and the SuperStack 3 IP telephony solution. Installed by these resellers, the network is accelerating the hospital's communications and key medical and administrative applications while saving it 3 million Euros - about $2.5 million - per year.
