Utrecht, 20 oktober 2015 – Eurofiber en Stichting GERRIT, een kennis- en innovatieplatform voor de zorg in Noord-Nederland, hebben een samenwerkingscontract afgesloten. Het gaat om de levering van een dark fiber-ring die het grootste deel van de ziekenhuizen in de regio en twee datacenters met elkaar verbindt. In Friesland bestaat een dergelijk glasvezelnetwerk al. Met de komst van de nieuwe dark fiber-ring wordt het hele noorden voorzien van een IT-infrastructuur waarover de ziekenhuizen en laboratoria gebruikmaken van zorgdiensten en medische informatie uitwisselen, bijvoorbeeld via de wereldwijde IHE-XDS-standaard. Het contract heeft een looptijd van twaalf jaar. In het eerste kwartaal van 2016 is het glasvezelnetwerk operationeel.

Open letter from ECTA CEOs to the College of Commissioners
 
What contribution from the Digital Single Market to
Europe’s global competitiveness?
How well we nurture local competition will decide. Global competitiveness springs from local competition.

 

Europe should have a high level of ambition in building a globally competitive economy and society. In the digital age we can undoubtedly only be globally competitive if the European economy – companies of all sizes in all sectors, public administrations, schools, research centres etc. – and society are connected and take advantage of digital innovation.
