At Juniper Networks, our mission is, and has always been, to enable reliable and secure mission-critical infrastructure for connectivity around the world. As our local and global communities collectively wrestle with the emerging COVID-19 challenges, keeping the world connected has never been more important. The healthcare industry is especially feeling the weight of it and we want to help.
Hospitals are building outdoor drive-through testing facilities and opening temporary triage centers in retail store parking lots and other locations to handle the increase in patient volume while simultaneously containing the spread of the virus. However, it can be challenging and time-consuming to deploy adequate Wi-Fi networks in these temporary sites, which can cause lengthy wait times and delay the receipt of test results. Furthermore, the data being transmitted from these locations can be vulnerable to cyberattacks if not adequately secured. This is simply unacceptable.
To help reduce these IT challenges and allow healthcare facilities to focus on helping patients, Juniper is offering a free secure “pop up Wi-Fi network” kit for any temporary COVID-19 testing facility. Initially available in the US, Canada and the UK, this kit includes free Mist wireless Access Points, cloud-hosted operations with an AI-driven network and an SRX firewall (with PoE, DHCP and optional LTE uplink) to ensure a secure and reliable connection that can be set up quickly and easily.
This is a no-strings attached offer available to any healthcare facility looking to quickly deploy a secure and reliable wireless network in response to the COVID-19 crisis. If you are interested and can utilize this solution, more information on the terms of the offer can be found here: https://www.juniper.net/us/en/forms/covid-19/
Additionally, our global services team is prioritizing any and all support for medical, healthcare and/or senior care customers with free premium support services. This includes priority expert-to-expert technical support; priority RMA, logistics and parts handling; as well as entitlement support. Any customer in these industries will be fully supported even if they don’t have an active support or maintenance contract.
Our mission as a company is extremely personal to me – now more than ever. I am proud of Juniper Networks and my Juniper family for rallying behind this important cause and delivering a solution in record time.
