March 3, 2006 Austin, TX -- OnFiber Communications announced that it is delivering a custom-built secure network to provide the critical disaster recovery infrastructure for Virginia Hospital Center. The converged transport solution will support storage, IP, data, voice and other clinical applications for the Arlington-based Hospital.
"Key to our disaster recovery strategy, Virginia Hospital Center needs a diverse, multi-service network that supports all our communications needs," comments Mark Rein, director of information technology at Virginia Hospital Center. "Because our data is so sensitive and private, we required the most reliable and secure network that we could find. OnFiber proved to be the one company that can deliver the class of disaster recovery infrastructure we needed."
OnFiber is leveraging its AdaptiveBuild process to create a multi-service network that serves as Virginia Hospital Center's disaster recovery infrastructure. The company says the process consolidates the hospital's applications onto one highly reliable platform. The network securely transports data between its main facility and a hosting center across a protected OC-48 SONET ring.
The network supports storage area network (SAN) replication, voice circuits to alternate providers, and Internet gateway connections. Designed to scale up to OC-192, the company says the hospital center now has the flexibility and capacity to support current and future applications.
