Concord Hospital Deploys Juniper Application Acceleration and Security Platforms

Concord Hospital, a regional medical center with the second busiest acute care hospital in the state of New Hampshire, has deployed Juniper Networks' WX application acceleration platform, Secure Services Gateway (SSG) firewall/VPN appliances with Unified Threat Management (UTM) and Secure Access (SA) 4000 SSL VPN to increase the performance of business-critical applications by 40 to 50%. The network also ensures
secure wireless VoIP communications in its emergency department, and provides secure remote network access for employees using a standard Web browser.

Juniper's WX platform employs application acceleration techniques that recognize and eliminate redundant transmissions, speed application-specific protocols, prioritize and allocate bandwidth, and accelerate SSL-encrypted applications. Additionally, Concord Hospital implemented Juniper's WX Central Management System (WX-CMS) to gain real-time network and application visibility and proactively manage the network.
