Ready or not:
It’s up to your SD-WAN.

Healthcare consolidation is on the rise. That means you have a long-distance relationship with multiple clouds and pieces of your network, and it’s hard to maintain the performance and security you—and your patients—need. What would happen if you could connect everything? Here’s what a day looks like at a healthcare organization with and without a connected, unified multicloud network.

With Cisco SD-WAN

Without Cisco SD-WAN

Healthcare never sleeps. But you do.

Patient care is a 24/7 operation. Good thing Cisco SD-WAN has your back. And your edge. And your core. No matter what time it is. You sleep easy, knowing you have the right security at the right place, from user to application.

As tired as a
first-year resident

Are you blissfully catching z’s? No. You’re awake, stressing over how many threats might be eating away at your network right now—especially those hundreds (thousands?) of connected medical devices.

Healthy application performance

Enjoy that breakfast sandwich—your applications are running like clockwork, even with the explosive growth in WAN traffic.

Cisco SD-WAN isn’t just about increasing bandwidth. It dynamically steers traffic around network problems—like that one hospital floor that always drops connections— for optimal delivery of applications. All while simplifying and securing your multicloud management.

Critical condition

Your morning is an inbox full of notifications: Important healthcare applications are running slowly, and you have bandwidth bottlenecks. Congestion, high-latency connections, failed links—while cloud-based applications are key, without the right network fabric, they complicate performance. Looks like your breakfast will have to wait.

2-day deployment

Healthcare regulatory updates? Ordinarily, you’d groan. But you have Cisco SD-WAN, so it’s easy peasy. With centralized management and visibility, you can globally deploy and enforce policy in real time at the application level.

Hands off

It’s the end of the business day, and it’s “go live” time for your new hospital. Will you be here all night provisioning? Nope. Plan A: With Cisco SD-WAN, deployment is simple, secure, and centrally managed, straight from the cloud. Then pack up and go home. No Plan B needed.

Face palm

It’s time to launch your new hospital and sign off for the day. But you can’t easily access those thousands of new endpoints. Plan A: Bang your head on the keyboard. Plan B: Take many deep breaths and start another pot of coffee. It’s going to be a late night.
