Camden, N.J.-based Cooper University Medical Center has replaced its patchwork communications network with technology from Comcast Business Ethernet services.

The new service includes a fiber-based Ethernet with 86 connections linking 43 locations and speeds ranging from 10 Mbps to 600 Mbps, and a 200 Mbps dedicated Internet at Cooper University Hospital.

An Ethernet virtual private network connects remote sites to the main campus and has sufficient capability remaining to add additional sites over time, according to the vendor. Another Ethernet service offers a 6 Mbps virtual private network to radiologists’ homes for secure after-hours access to medical images.

The enhanced connectivity was necessary to support a new electronic health records system. A spokesperson at Cooper University Medical Center did not respond to a request for additional information.
