New Network Allows New Independence for Dutch Care Center Residents

The Martha Flora care center takes a modern approach to caring for those with dementia, giving its residents the support they need to live with relative independence. Central to this experience is reliable TV, internet, and phone service, ensuring that residents – all of whom have their own devices – can enjoy entertainment and communicate with loved ones at any time. For this, strong and reliable internet connectivity is indispensable. However, with the numbers of residents at its centers growing and with new centers in the works, Martha Flora’s existing network was buckling under the pressure. For instance, the network could not handle speeds of 500 Mbps or more, which are now the norm and necessary for streaming and video calls. There were also no security gateways or firewalls, raising serious cybersecurity concerns. Furthermore, some care centers had a guest network while others did not. Martha Flora’s system integrator Stemere ICT went with Zyxel’s Nebula cloud networking solution, which consists of everything needed to meet the customer’s specific requirements: security gateways, access points, and network switches. After the installation, residents are now connecting their own TVs, tablets, and phones through high-speed connections, distributed via smart managed switches. Caregivers and staff can enjoy seamless connectivity when roaming throughout each facility. Want to know how Zyxel Nebula solution fixes the problems and improves network performance?

The extra attention Zyxel Networks gives through calls and roundtable discussions is greatly appreciated. Zyxel Networks is exactly the kind of manufacturer you want to see, as it thinks along with the end customer – it’s not just concerned with selling products and moving on.
