DJO Deploys Enterasys Solutions to Provide Network Connectivity and Security

DJO, a manufacturer of medical devices, has deployed Enterasys solutions to provide network connectivity and security with better service and support to more than 1,200 users and 1,000 devices across multiple locations.

The Enterasys solution enables the company's small IT staff to support front-end and back-office enterprise applications and deploy VoIP and implement IP video surveillance - all while staying within network compliance guidelines of Sarbanes-Oxley, the Food and Drug Administration and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.

According to Enterasys, DJO's fully optimized network consists of Enterasys Matrix N-Series and Enterasys XSR Security Routers at the network core. Matrix N-Series flow-based switches offer granular visibility and control of individual voice, video, data applications and users. The XSRs anchor a virtual private network that supports more than 10 DJO Offices worldwide.

John Iraci, vice president of enterprise infrastructure at DJO, said: "Prior to Enterasys, our network infrastructure included several legacy hardware systems brought together from multiple acquisitions and the old DJO. Over the years, new devices had been added at each predecessor company, which resulted in bottlenecks, and many core network appliances were at 80% of their capacity or more."
