Optimum Lightpath Supplies Metro Ethernet for NY Clinics

Cablevision's Optimum Lightpath division announced that more than 15 healthcare providers in the New York tri-state area have recently opted for its Metro Ethernet service. The carrier said that Metro Ethernet is especially attractive to medical facilities that specialize in diagnostic imaging technologies (i.e., MRI, CT, PET Ultrasound, Mammography, and Nuclear Medicine).

"Many of the newest clinical applications, such as those related to imaging, are highly data-intensive. Clearly, the previous 45 Mbps connections we had did not cut the mustard," said Richard Temple, chief information officer, Saint Clare's Health System.
