Feb 25, 2008 (08:02 AM EST)


WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Colubris Networks, the leading global provider of intelligent wireless LANs (WLANs) for enterprises and service providers, will leverage its participation in the 2008 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition, taking place February 24-28 in Orlando, FL, to showcase how the company's wireless technologies, including those supporting the 802.11n standard, can be used to significantly improve patient care in today's hospitals, clinics and medical centers.

In addition to highlighting the award-winning Colubris Intelligent Mobility Solution, a powerful WLAN system for the healthcare industry, the company will also demonstrate how its Wireless Client Bridge 200 (WCB-200) is being used to wirelessly enable a variety of legacy medical equipment. With the Colubris WCB-200, hospitals have the ability to cost-effectively give wireless capabilities to non-wireless medical devices, such as cardiac monitors, mobile X-ray equipment, pulse oximetry equipment and high-definition video carts -- without the added expense of replacing equipment.

Colubris Networks delivers the most secure, wireless networking solution tailored to meet the stringent, real-time needs of healthcare providers. Colubris dramatically boosts hospital staff productivity and response time by providing caregivers with anywhere, anytime voice communications and bedside access to key clinical support applications and electronic medical records (EMR) -- ultimately enhancing the quality of care delivered to patients. Further, Colubris safeguards the integrity of confidential patient information as it travels over the wireless network, allowing organizations to fully comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations for patient privacy. Unlike other vendor offerings, Colubris' state-of-the art wireless security and intrusion prevention provides rock- solid protection that never interferes with real-time voice or delivery of time-sensitive medical information.

Colubris will be in booth 3121 at the 2008 Annual HIMSS Conference & Exhibition.
