M5 Technologies , a leading developer of advanced VoIP technologies and services, announced today that EsSalud Health Services in Peru has selected the Mediatrix VoIP gateways to be implemented into over 360 healthcare facilities throughout Peru, creating the largest VoIP deployment in a healthcare environment for all of Latin America.

Deployed in association with M5 Technologies ’s channel partner SUMTEC Peru, and with integration from IBM, the M5 Technologies solution for EsSalud Health Services consists of integrating one Mediatrix 4124 with 25 Mediatrix 4102s per selected healthcare. In addition, Mediatrix 3000 Series and Mediatrix 1204s will also be integrated into approximately ten percent of the hospital deployments. This will enable secure and survivable VoIP communications for EsSalud Health Services, connecting all 360 healthcare facilities throughout Peru under a single unified communications infrastructure.
