Advances in Technology (AIT) Deploys Secure High-Speed Wireless for LAN Access, PBX and Video Conferencing
McLean, VA – July 27, 2005 - fSONA Systems, the premier supplier of optical wireless equipment, today announced that Advances in
Technology (AIT), a leading information technology company, has deployed SONAbeam optical wireless for a biotechnology company in downtown Seattle.
fSONA’s SONAbeam is used to provide secure transparent LAN access for R&D and ERP databases, a connection for the TDM PBX telephone system
and video conferencing. The SONAbeam was selected for two reasons, the first being that the low latency and high throughput offered by the SONAbeam matches
the performance of dark fiber, which is essential for applications such as video conferencing or VoIP, and secondly because the SONAbeam could be deployed
“fSONA is a great addition to our network of technology partners,” stated Rich DeBrino, CIO of AIT. “SONAbeam gives AIT a proven
method of delivering secure wireless connections quickly and cost-effectively. According to a recent article in Information Week, U.S. businesses will be
forced to spend some $15.5 billion to comply with security regulations, including Sarbanes-Oxley, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
(HIPAA) and other mandates from federal agencies. AIT understands the challenges facing healthcare organizations today and specializes in providing
full-compliance solutions for protected health care information.”
“fSONA is pleased to partner with a company like AIT that is poised for success,” said Sunny Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of fSONA.
“Healthcare companies face a myriad of challenges as they transform their operations to meet current standards for privacy and take advantage of
new technologies. The experience that AIT has in meeting these challenges will be an invaluable benefit to those that work with them.”
