Making the Case for Interoperability Between Telehealth Platforms in Stroke Care and Beyond

Stroke remains a leading cause of death around the world; striking unexpectedly when the blood supply to an area of the brain is suddenly cut off. Once a stroke begins, brain cells are lost by the minute and the timing of emergency treatment is critical. Quick treatment can reduce complications, minimize long-term effects, and may  Read More The post Making the Case for Interoperability Between Telehealth Platforms in Stroke Care and Beyond appeared first on Vidyo Blog.

hhpberlin case study

  Enabling Fire in the Cloud hhpberlin is a globally acclaimed engineering firm offering fire protection services. Their challenge was to offer secure, complex fire simulations in the cloud without using the public internet. Colt provided secure, private connectivity known as Dedicated Cloud Acesss, to connect them to Microsoft Azure. hhpberlin was founded in 2000 with 10 employees, Today it leads the European fire protection market and employs over 180 people and continues to grow rapidly. hhpberlin is convicned that this growth was made possible by collaborating with Colt and with Microsoft.   Stefan Truthaen, CEO, hhpberlin: We’re very pleased with the customer service, infrastructure and expertise of Colt, and we’re moving our entire organizational structure to the cloud. Dedicated Cloud Access is the last piece of the puzzle and has enabled us to move completely off-premise.       Download the full case study colt_case-study_hhpberlin_en   The post hhpberlin case study appeared first on Colt Blog – Colt

The case for a wider shared SDN ecosystem

With each advancement of technology customers become ever more demanding. Network services customers want a flexible bandwidth profile capable of meeting the demands of continually changing traffic profiles caused by offshored cloud applications. And they want a globalised WAN service to complement it. But current SDN deployments are missing a piece of the puzzle, the ability to easily provision services on network that is not owned by the service provider. SDN based network management is the key to both flexibility and globalisation but there is no service provider with a complete global reach. This limits the potential benefits of SDN deployments with the end user only being able to quickly provision network along the host carrier’s infrastructure. And where it may be possible, scalability and the ability to tailor the speed of a new connection is often very difficult if not impossible. As SDN gains traction and more use cases, end users are going to demand greater reach as demand grows. In fact, at Colt we already have customers asking about the reach of our on demand services, but the response is somewhat limited due to complicated network-to-network interfaces (NNIs) industry wide. Current NNIs tend to be bespoke solutions, meaning they are both expensive and take a long time to…
