swyMed makes telemedicine software, hardware, and solutions for the healthcare industry. This Packet Pushers podcast episode features the swyMed DOT Telemedicine Backpack. Jeff Urdan, Chief Operating Officer of swyMed, describes how the backpack works, explains the role the Silver Peak Unity EdgeConnect™ SD-WAN edge platform plays in enabling 4G LTE connectivity, and shares stories of how the technology is used by first responders to help save lives.
The SD-WAN enabled backpack enables high-quality audio and video between responders on site and doctors and nurses at hospitals or clinics. This mobile telemedicine solution enables doctors and nurses to weigh in on treatment and make diagnoses without being on site. The product uses the Ultra-Small Silver Peak EdgeConnect SD-WAN appliance to bond multiple LTE links to ensure persistent and high-quality connectivity.
