National LambdaRail & CENIC on Healthcare

National LambdaRail (NLR) and the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC) announced that they will partner in the delivery of ultra-high bandwidth services to healthcare organizations in California and Arizona.

Last week, NLR announced a partnership with AT&T on communication services for healthcare organizations, first in California and ultimately across the United States. The addition of CENIC to the partnership creates very comprehensive connectivity within the California and Arizona healthcare community.

"This is another vital step towards an integrated health information infrastructure for the United States,” said NLR Chairman and CEO Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong. “These key partnerships for high volume, high speed data services to all medical institutions, put us well on the way towards making genomically-informed, evidence-based medical care a reality. Whole genome sequencing data can be deployed quickly to the service of clinical decision making at the point of care."

  • Earlier this year, National LambdaRail transferred its Network Operations Center (NOC) to the Corporation for Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC). In addition to optical layer services, CENIC will now be responsible for switch, router and engineering support desk NOC services and, in a recently expanded agreement, CENIC will deliver network design engineering capabilities for NLR.
