Concord Hospital Boosts Bandwidth and Reduces Costs with Avaya's Virtual Enterprise Network Architecture Solutions
- Concord Hospital improves network performance while saving at least $100,000 per year in IT staffing costs with Avaya VENA
- Avaya VSP 7000 and 9000 simplify operations and address rising bandwidth requirements in the hospital’s data center
"Concord Hospital's goal is to provide the highest quality patient care and the highest quality outcomes for every person who walks through our door, and one of the ways we do that is through efficient use of technology. We consider the network a utility in the same critical category as electricity, oxygen and water—it needs to be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with zero tolerance for downtime. We've been with Avaya for many years, and because of our strong emphasis on network capabilities, we've been early adopters of technologies that many other organizations are just getting into now. After very careful consideration, we decided to stay with Avaya's networking solutions because we've found the equipment to be rock solid and saw no advantage to changing suppliers."
—Mark Starry, chief technology officer, Concord Hospital
