Nebraska Medicine Improves Patient Care with Enhanced Enterprise Network Powered by Ciena

Nebraska Medicine, a leader in oncology, cardiology and neurology services as well as organ and transplant services, is replacing its legacy network with a private enterprise network powered by Ciena’s packet networking and converged packet optical solutions. The new network will connect five geographically dispersed facilities and enable Nebraska Medicine to utilize bandwidth-intensive applications. The healthcare provider will be able to take advantage of technology advances like digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) machines that help detect early stages of breast cancer, and also provide improved services in cardiology, radiology and other areas of medicine where enhanced digital imaging is essential.
