Dear Readers,

with the expansion of the GSM business group with the newly founded company K&M GmbH Feinblechbau & Design is the corresponding expansion of the group’s portfolio. In particular, services in the areas of telemedicine and medical technology can now become even more effective. New projects with SIE media and the broadband network now used by 80 hospitals via MEYTEC are only a couple of the highlights of the past month. Telemedicine is also currently a popular topic, as various events attended and supported by MEYTEC testify.

As always, enjoy!

Yours,

Telemedicine network VIMED® medMnet by MEYTEC: a success story

In March 2011 the 80th hospital in Germany joined the telemedicine network medMnet, which has thus acheived a significant nationwide scope. The network, conceived especially for real-time applications in telemedicine provides VPN connections for telestroke, teleradiology and other telemedicine networks. With its broadband connection of exclusive symmetrical 2 Mbit/s at the operation point of each hospital a high-quality router is used. In addition to the routing of the desired IP-connection, encryption is carried out according to current Ipsec-standards. Permanent monitoring of the VPN connection ensures quick reactions in case of disruptions or outages. Even faulty routers can be remotely activated. Hospital IT employees have given medMnet a warm welcome. Especially considering the importance of 24-hour availability, it is beneficial to be able to have centralized, full access. MEYTEC plans to further improve the quality and accessibility of medMnet.
