Design and Operation of a Medical Grade Network

Carole Warner Reece

Terry Slattery, Steve Meyer, and I just published a high level white paper on Medical Grade Network Design and Operation. It describes how to design and operate a converged network to support medical applications.

Key points covered in the paper include the converged network infrastructure design, virtual network overlays, QoS classes, and operation of a medical grade network.

I think the paper will also tie nicely into the March 22, 2011 C-MUG (Cisco Mid-Atlantic User Group) session on Healthcare Network Pain: Causes and Treatments.

PS – An earlier blog on Designing a Medical Grade Network will provide more in-depth technical discussion, include information on using VRF-Lite, QoS classes to support medical and business applications, and biomedical NAC in medical grade networks.
