Dispersive Technologies To Demonstrate Networking Solutions At HIMSS Conference


ALPHARETTA, Ga., February 25, 2016 – Dispersive Technologies, Inc. (, a leading innovator in software-defined networking, will demonstrate its virtualized network solutions for the healthcare industry at the 2016 HIMSS Annual Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas February 29 - March 4, 2016.

The conference brings together more than 40,000 healthcare IT professionals, clinicians, executives and vendors from around the world. 

“The Internet presents both promise and problems to the healthcare industry,” explained Dispersive Technologies’ President and CEO Robert W. Twitchell, Jr. “Its pervasiveness makes it ideal for delivering more flexible, more accessible healthcare services. However, there are inherent delivery problems like network spikes and latency. Plus, there’s the security risk. In fact, no industry suffers more data breaches with more serious consequences than healthcare. Our virtualized networks overcome all these challenges.”

Dispersive™ Virtualized Networks (Dispersive™ VNs) provide order-of-magnitude improvements for an array of healthcare services. They deliver fluid, real-time voice and video and reduce packet latency during online doctor visits. They secure the transmission of vital signs during remote patient monitoring. During a crisis response, Dispersive™ VNs virtually air gaps users, devices and information. They also allow users to utilize any type of Internet connection. The solution thwarts hacks on medical devices like MRIs and IV pumps. It even reduces – and in some cases eliminates – the lag that often occurs during robotic telesurgery.

Dispersive Technologies’ Product Manager Douglas Dimola believes Dispersive™ VNs will usher in a new era of digital health services.

“We’re seeing transmission speeds up to 10 times faster than VPNs with as much as 30 percent less packet latency,” Dimola said. “Independent studies have shown that, in a congested environment, our software can provide a 60 percent increase in performance and deliver up to 95 percent utilization of bandwidth for a connection, compared to the 60 percent or less typically seen with standard VPN connections. In short, unlike other networks, there’s no trade-off between performance and security. Ours maximizes both.”

One of the conference speakers, Dimola will detail the advantages Dispersive™ VNs offer healthcare providers and patients. The company will demonstrate its virtualized networks at Booth #9908-25 in the Cybersecurity Command Center.
