Expedite and prioritize emergency communications

Get Private Network Traffic Management.

When your job is keeping the public safe, communication is critical. During natural disasters, states of emergency, or large public gatherings like sporting events,
subscribers’ applications (mission critical and non-mission critical) are forced to compete for network resources. Now, there’s a higher level of service available for your critical data
applications. This helps escalate the needs of first responders when network traffic is in high demand.

Manage network congestion.
Private Network Traffic Management consolidates emergency communications and enables your agency to control which applications get preferential access.
Private Network Traffic Management is an enhancement that provides you with a premium and differentiated network experience through Quality of Service (QoS)
capabilities. It allows you to create IP traffic preferences for mission critical applications, secure a high level of service and achieve more predictable application performance
during times of peak network demand.

Three ways to drive your traffic
Verizon Wireless 4G LTE Private Network with Private Network Traffic Management offers agencies three levels of service to help you map mission critical applications:

Benefits of an enhanced network
With Private Network Traffic Management, agencies can realize an improved user experience during network congestion through:
More control. When the 4G LTE Private Network experiences heavy peak utilization, Private Network Traffic Management gives you the ability to grant preferential access to network resources.

Faster response. Enable prioritized data communication using standards-based IP packet marking to and from first responders to help them react more quickly and appropriately.

Higher productivity. With more predictable application performance during high-traffic periods, your response team can use mission critical applications more effectively to help improve continuity of data communications.

New potential. Private Network Traffic Management extends QoS policies traditionally provided on fixed WAN to the 4G LTE Private Network, giving you expanded network control.

Access priority. During heavy network usage, emergency response subscribers get priority network access for essential communication modes, such as radio resources.

Private Network Traffic Management Core Components for agencies Traffic. Agencies can use IP Differentiated Service Code Point (DSCP) application marking to map applications into the Mission Critical Class of Service (CoS).
Bandwidth. Agencies can allocate different bandwidths for applications into the Mission Critical CoS according to the specific application’s requirements.
Access priority. During network contention, the network grants access to qualified first responder subscribers before allowing access to other subscribers.

Why Private Network Traffic Management from Verizon?
Only Verizon Wireless offers public safety agencies:
• Improved experience during
network congestion.
• Wireless network preferential access for
first responders.
• Increased control and predictability over
application performance.
• QoS policies from fixed WAN extended to
4G LTE Private Network.
• America’s largest and most reliable
4G LTE network.

Healthcare Beyond the Office with Mobile & In-Vehicle Networks Healthcare IT Enabled by 4G LTE

WHAT YOU’LL GET:

  • An overview of how wireless connectivity is enabling healthcare to be more flexible and competitive
  • Considerations for choosing healthcare solutions that ensure secure, reliable, and cost-effective network connectivity
  • How 4G LTE improves the delivery of care and patient satisfaction
  • A customer success story featuring St. David’s Foundation Mobile Dental Program

It’s time for healthcare providers to change the way they think about their services. No longer is healthcare simply about healing sick patients in the confines of the office or hospital. Growing competition driven by changes in public policy and consumer
expectations mean that healthcare organizations must find ways to meet patients where they want and need healthcare the most—which requires extending care, and connectivity, beyond the boundaries of traditional healthcare facilities.

With the Internet at their fingertips, patients now feel a greater sense of empowerment and choice, which is driving the “consumerization of healthcare.” Today’s consumers are savvier, have higher service expectations, and are more comfortable with technology. They seek providers who not only care, but whose service offerings enable wellness. Additionally, sweeping changes ushered in by the Affordable Care Act, along with growing business pressures, have begun to turn the standard reimbursement model on its head, shifting from a pay-for service model to a pay-for-value model that focuses on wellness and prevention.

New paradigms in healthcare IT promise care providers the best of both worlds: superior care with greater flexibility. The growth of 4G LTE networks now lets medical professionals sever traditional ties to the office and use high-speed, reliable connectivity to enable key wellness programs and bring advanced care to patients anywhere and everywhere.

The growing number of healthcare professionals who see patients at home or even in their workplaces use mobile networks to ensure secure, compliant connectivity from anywhere to quickly update charts, check patient prescriptions, review reference materials, and communicate with the patient’s team of providers, all without having to return back to the central office. Similarly, from first responders to public health providers, healthcare professionals who do their work on the road rely on in-vehicle networks to transmit lifesaving information and update patient records without having to return to the central office. This white paper explores how healthcare IT administrators are enabling mobile Internet access through 4G LTE; considerations for choosing healthcare solutions that ensure secure, reliable, and cost-effective network connectivity; and the advantages of 4G LTE connectivity over traditional wired solutions.
