Free informational White Paper by Connected Healthcare Solutions.
MILWAUKEE, WI, December 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Wisconsin based Connected Healthcare Solutions announced the release of a free White Paper detailing the potential impact to remote patient monitoring devices caused by the decommission of legacy communication architectures in the United States.
The foundation of telephony communication began in the early 1900's when countless miles of copper lines were connected, creating a communication network known as POTS/PSTN (Plain Old Telephone System). By the 21st century nearly 200 million POTS/PSTN connections existed in the United States and approximately 2.2 million patients were using remote medical devices. Many of the devices rely on the POTS/PSTN architecture to transmit data to health care providers. By 2012, the number of POTS/PSTN subscribers was cut in half, while medical device users continued to rise. Europe and other regions have already begun the decommissioning of POTS/PSTN. In the United States, the FCC is leading a planned and cooperative decommission of PSTN with the major telecom providers.
Connected Healthcare Solutions' insight provides a comprehensive, easily understood overview of the challenges, timelines and technology solutions for the impending sunset of the POTS/PSTN network. The company recently began the PSTN - POTS Sunset group on LinkedIn and has developed a White Paper, which is available at their website www.connectedhealthcaresolutions.com for free download.
Brett Quas, founder of Connected Healthcare Solutions expects the paper to raise awareness and knowledge within the healthcare segment, and for companies utilizing remote patient monitoring technology.
