New H3C Networks a First-Class Hospital in Shanghai


Established in 1907, this upper first-class comprehensive Hospital with over a hundred years of experience integrates medical treatment, teaching, and scientific research. With a built area of 300,000m2, and gardens covering 40,000m2, the Hospital has 1,693 approved beds and 3,776 employees, including almost a thousand doctors.

The Hospital’s long-term information technology partner, New H3C has continuously provided quality solutions, including network architectures, wireless coverage and network management solutions, in a relationship that has benefited both parties as the Hospital’s business has continued to develop.

Both the wired and the wireless networks at the Hospital were constructed with New H3C’s assistance. The wired network uses two S12508 core switches at data center level, four S10508 regional core switches, and over 300 S5130 access switches. The WLAN covers the entire area of the hospital with two WX5540E wireless controllers providing redundancy. More than 1000 APs, deployed to suit on-site conditions, support wireless access for diversified applications. Operation and maintenance (O&M) of the network system and authentication of network client (STA) access is achieved via 500 network management platforms, 10,000 EIA components, and 1500 Wireless Security Modules (WSM).
