SDN Fx™ Healthcare

Your On Ramp to the Internet of Things for Healthcare

Get the Power and Protection of Network Segmentation

  • Use advanced network segmentation to reduce catastrophic breaches. SDN Fx™ Healthcare creates virtualized network segments that isolate users and medical devices from unauthorized access.
  • Automate onboarding of new medical devices. Once paired with a new type of networking adapter, a medical device is automatically assigned custom security and flow parameters that dynamically follow the device wherever it is connected on the network.
  • Manage inventory of thousands of medical devices. Addressing one of the greatest challenges to an Internet of Things healthcare model, the SDN Fx Healthcare management system provides the location and status of all on-boarded medical devices in the network.
  • Assign flow priority by device and traffic type. Avaya uses Software-Defined Networking to program and manage granular flows on a per-medical-device basis.

How SDN Fx Healthcare Works with Advanced Network Segmentation

Stop Trading Off Rapid Device Deployment and Network Security

Digital healthcare organizations need to continuously launch innovative technologies delivered on a massive number of medical devices. Traditional networking infrastructures are nearly incapable of handling these thousands of devices—each with hundreds of models—in a secure way. Typically, healthcare organizations are forced to choose between slow adoption of new technology and adequate security. SDN Fx Healthcare is the industry’s first smart healthcare solution that automatically connects, helps secure, and manages IoT devices in healthcare organizations.

How SDN Fx Healthcare Works

Open Automation is the key to addressing speed of device implementation as well as network security. We use an Open Networking Adapter (ONA) running a Linux OS and Open vSwitch, and an SDN Controller running OpenDaylight. The ONA acts as an intelligent network node for the medical device. The ONA learns the device’s profile and flow assignments from the SDN controller, and when using Fabric Connect, automates network segmentation across the network core.
