Health System Increases Efficiency and Scalability with Structured Cabling and Network Visibility

Prior to teaming with CABLExpress and Gigamon, WellSpan Health’s cabling infrastructure had several individual fiber runs and lacked a TIA-942 recommended structured cabling environment. As the health system transitioned from 1 to 10 Gigabit Ethernet in its network, it required a high-density environment to operate with maximum efficiency.

In this short video, Randal Echterling, Network Architect at WellSpan Health, explains how a CABLExpress structured cabling system and custom tap modules allowed him to use Gigamon technologies to gain increased visibility into his network operations.
 
With a goal of implementing a structured cabling platform and gaining increased visibility into its network, WellSpan partnered with CABLExpress and Gigamon to develop a comprehensive solution.
