SINT-ANNENDAEL HOSPITAL DEPLOYS NETLINK WIRELESS PHONES.

SpectraLink Corporation (Nasdaq: SLNK), Boulder, Colo. an industry pioneer in enterprise wireless communications, has deployed its NetLink Wireless Telephones in Sint-Annendael Hospital of Diest, Belgium. The psychiatric hospital has equipped 70 of its doctors, nurses, and staff with NetLink Wireless Telephones, allowing them to use the handsets throughout critical medical departments. As a result, healthcare professionals in the 168-bed hospital are more responsive to the needs of patients, their families, and other staff throughout the entire facility.

Sint-Annendael selected SpectraLink's NetLink Wireless Telephones because the system easily and seamlessly integrated with their newly purchased Avaya Definity PBX and their network of Avaya Wi-Fi wireless LAN access points. Sint-Annendael partnered with A2Z Solutions, a system integrator based in Belgium, which provided the NetLink Wireless Telephone installation and training.

NetLink Wireless Telephones bring newfound mobility to Sint-Annendael's medical staff, who previously were limited to using beepers and returning pages on wired telephones at nurses' stations, which was time consuming, lacked privacy, and caused response-time delays.

"We are extremely excited about the benefits we already are seeing from our NetLink Wireless Telephones, which have made patient care dramatically more efficient," said Wolfgang Wauters, IT manager for Sint-Annendael. "Staff communications have improved in every way throughout our hospital and the interoperability of the NetLink system allows us opportunities for the future build-out of our network."

"Sint-Annendael is making significant technology investments to deal with the demanding communication needs that are critical to the healthcare industry," said Mike Cronin, vice president of sales and marketing for SpectraLink. "Sint-Annendael researched the market thoroughly for its new voice communication system and were pleased with the functionality of our handsets to facilitate communications in their hospital, freeing employees' time to focus on patient care."
