What's New?

A recent survey has shown that CIOs considering cloud adoption has jumped from 54% to 89% post-COVID-19.  Remote networking has become a necessity, and cloud-management can provide configuration scalability and global visibility for branch office deployments and teleworkers. A network administrator can easily configure, provision, and monitor equipment for thousands of teleworkers from the cloud

ExtremeCloud IQ New Features - July 2020 Part II
“Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Trust partnered with LAN3 for a full network and wireless roll-out in 2016. The campus is of a significant size with over 500 wireless access points. Being a hospital, it is imperative that the wireless platform is stable and optimised, a challenge considering the environmental complexities of any hospital site, taking into account surgical theatres and X-Ray facilities. As such the quality of the surveys was of particular importance to the Trust. LAN3, with its experience working in an acute hospital setting, conducted the surveys in a professional and meticulous manner, which provided us the assurances we sought.”
Phill Lunt
Royal United Hospitals Bath
The nature of a hospital means we attract large numbers of both patients and visitors every day, many of which want to be able to connect to the wireless for different reasons. This leads to enormous demand placed on it. Add the move towards Electronic Patient Records from clinicians, and the best thing I can say about the Extreme wireless designed and installed by LAN3, is that it simply works without complaint.
Martin Cummings
Weston General Hospital
LAN3 has given us unparalleled consultancy from the off. We are delighted with the advice and insight we’ve received, from the initial recommendation right up until the present day
