During the global health crisis, Kyungpook National University (KNU) Hospital expanded its no-contact medical services with an intent-based network powered by Cisco, while it secured IT operations and improved visibility through integrated network-management solutions.

Summary

Challenges

  • Expanding network infrastructure at screening centers and temporary clinics
  • Deploying a secure wireless infrastructure for a new, smart hospital building with 700 beds
  • Expanding no-contact medical and administrative services
  • Gaining visibility to centrally manage geographically distributed IT infrastructure as KNU adds new medical centers

Results

  • Secure medical-data access for drive-through testing centers and temporary clinics
  • Improved reliability and efficiency of IT infrastructure through centralized network management
  • No-contact services provided with a secure wireless network powered by Cisco Wi-Fi 6 solutions
  • Real-time monitoring for operation of critical medical equipment and patient location services
  • Less burden on medical staff and more efficiency of medical services

What they're saying

With Cisco DNA, we have been able to centrally manage the entire network and integrate security policies across our multiple medical centers, which allows us to spend less time and resources on maintenance. Now, we can immediately identify an issue and resolve it without having to visit a site.
