Medical and Healthcare
Acquiring, storing, and processing information about patients is critical for effective healthcare. Doctors, clinics, hospitals, and laboratories all need real-time access to up-to-date information.
Making sure the right information is available on the network from the moment of capture is the key. Much data is generated by patient monitoring or treatment equipment such as heart monitors, blood analysers, ventilators and other diagnostic devices. By making this information available across the network, it can be easily shared from the bedside to the laboratory. Today's health services are striving for maximum efficiency at minimum cost and the right information can help determine the most cost-effective treatment.
Perle device networking hardware helps put data at the heart of the healthcare industry in numerous ways:
Network Enable Medical Equipment
Complex patient monitoring devices with serial connections can be interfaced to a single network connection and managed remotely - even across the internet.
Perle Serial Console Servers offer network or dial-up access to local system ports. Administrators are able to have access from anywhere, just as if they were connected locally through a serial connection. Remote management helps reduce costs yet maintains network security.
Improve building safety and reduce energy costs by using Perle device connectivity hardware to control and remotely manage security systems, HVAC, lighting, elevators, fire systems, utility meters and building access over a single building management network.

Perle Ethernet Extenders provide PoE power to WAPs located inside elevator cabs and enable WiFi coverage while inside the previously signal proof boxes
Integration of serial cards in Badger neo-natal monitoring system enable real-time reporting to nurse stations from intensive care units
Terminal Servers integrated into the OPUS::L solution correlate lab data from blood analyzers and transmit the results to the correct doctors and wards.
Device Servers network enable blood analyzers so that results are integrated with a new Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS).
By installing a remote serial device server with integrated analog inputs, fluid levels in remote autoclaves can be monitored and managed over an IP network.
Integration of serial cards enable real-time data transmission from bedside monitoring devices to hospital nursing stations.
