The Felix Platter Hospital in Basel, Switzerland, is deploying Cisco intent-based networking. The network is designed and deployed by Itris Enterprise, a Cisco Gold Partner in Switzerland, and is expected to be operational by December 2018.

The network is expected to power applications used by doctors, nurses, patients, and hospital operations, including the hospital information system and asset tracking for medical equipment. The building’s automation system, voice and video communication (including mobile devices) and the patient entertainment system is also expected to be on the same network.
