Allied Telesis and Terumo Co., Ltd. Partner to Provide Effective Location Visualization of Medical IoT Devices

SAN JOSE, CA – March 22nd, 2021 - Allied Telesis, a leading provider of hardware and software products that allow customers to build secure, feature-rich and scalable data exchange solutions, has announced a new partnership with Terumo.

Terumo is a global leader in medical technology with an extensive business portfolio including vascular intervention and cardio-surgical solutions, blood transfusion and cell therapy technology, and medical products essential for daily clinical practice.

Terumo’s Terufusion Advanced Infusion System offers accurate, reliable, and innovative syringe and volumetric pumps, without putting an extra burden on healthcare professionals. However, in the busy hospital environment such devices are not easily tracked, and inventory control can become compromised.

To solve this ongoing issue, Allied Telesis and Terumo have worked together to enable smart syringe pumps whose location can be centrally visualized making them easy to find—saving hospital staff valuable time and enhancing patient care.

Terufusion Smart Syringe Pumps are added as wireless devices into the Allied Telesis Vista Manager EX network monitoring and management platform. They can then be easily viewed, with an appropriate syringe pump icon, on the network map along with other network and IoT devices, and their location is clearly shown. Now medical staff can easily and quickly find syringe pumps when they need them, which helps the hospital run smoothly and improves patient outcomes.

Other key benefits of this new solution include being able to import multiple smart syringe pumps into Vista Manager EX in a single step, where they become very easy to manage and status monitor using the inventory management tools in Vista Manager EX. This saves hospitals even more time and money.

Allied Telesis will continue to work with Terumo to build an experience demonstration environment at Terumo's training facility, “Pranex”. Together, Allied Telesis and Terumo will collaborate to solve network and technology problems in the medical field.
