Trauma hospital upgrades for future with UMGi

T & E Communications of St. Louis, Missouri, a regional leader in providing IT and communications solutions and dedicated NEC Corporation of America (NEC) re-seller, has deployed the first NEC UNIVERGE SV9500 UMGi (Ultra Module Group IP) system in North America to an expanding Level One trauma hospital, the company said.

The hospital is under construction and upgrading from its previous NEC UNIVERGE NEAX 2400 IPX system to take advantage of the scale, flexibility and mobility inherent in the NEC SV9500.

The SV9500 UMGi is a powerful communications platform designed with today´s mobile customer in mind. T & E Communications embraces a tried and tested mix of leading edge technology and high–end customer service.

The hospital had been a T & E service maintenance customer for a number of years before looking to lock-in plans to upgrade their communications platform. The system, the first UMGi & Collapsed Fusion network in the USA, allows the hospital to reuse existing hardware, reduce its support staff (multiple paths to one), reduce complicated programming, and add all modern telco technologies (SIP/IP-SDN) when necessary.
