Date:2/25/2008

Healthcare Organizations Can Leverage WLAN Infrastructure to Improve

Patient Care with Visibility into Location of Medical Equipment and

Personnel

WALTHAM, Mass., Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Colubris Networks, the leading global provider of intelligent wireless LANs (WLANs) for enterprises and service providers, today announced that the company is working with AeroScout, Inc., the leading provider of Unified Asset Visibility solutions, to allow organizations to track high-value equipment, mobile devices, patients and personnel via a Colubris wireless network. Current and future Colubris healthcare customers will be able to easily utilize AeroScout's real-time location solution (RTLS) to maximize patient safety, more effectively use equipment, improve business processes and enhance patient care.

The need for instantaneous communication and data accuracy is critical in the healthcare industry and hospitals, physicians' offices and healthcare clinics are relying more and more on wireless networks to provide caregivers with anywhere, anytime access to key clinical applications, electronic medical records and patient status updates. To provide responsive, high-quality patient care, healthcare organizations also require real-time visibility into the location of their assets and staff, across all departments.

The Colubris and AeroScout agreement provides organizations with a cost- effective way to implement location-based services by leveraging existing WLAN investments and eliminating the need to purchase a separate stand-alone asset tracking solution. Colubris MultiService Access Points (MAPs) communicate directly with the AeroScout Engine to produce reliable location and presence data for assets tagged with AeroScout's Wi-Fi based Active RFID tags. This means that organizations can use a single WLAN infrastructure for voice, video and data applications, as well as advanced location services, extending wireless network capabilities and resulting in a higher return on investment.

"The proven interface between the AeroScout infrastructure and the Colubris Intelligent Mobility Solution allows our customers to quickly and cost-effectively add a real-time location solution to their existing wireless network and immediately benefit from accurate location information when and where needed," said Tom Racca, vice president of marketing, Colubris Networks. "Whether locating an IV pump, tracking down surgical staff via personnel badges or determining the current inventory of wheelchairs, an integrated RTLS solution from Colubris and AeroScout enables healthcare organizations to optimize operations, while getting the most value out of their wireless network."

Colubris delivers the most secure, wireless networking solution tailored to meet the stringent, real-time needs of healthcare providers. In addition to providing reliable access to critical business applications, Colubris safeguards the integrity of confidential patient information as it travels over the wireless network, aiding in compliance with HIPAA regulations and providing rock-solid security that never interferes with real-time voice or delivery of time-sensitive medical information. AeroScout complements Colubris' healthcare experience, as its Wi-Fi based location solutions are endorsed by the American Hospital Association (AHA) and deployed at leading hospitals around the world.
