DELRAY BEACH, Fla., July 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Care Purchasing Services (CPS), the leading national group purchasing organization dedicated to the senior living market, partners with Qypsys to provide a fiber optic infrastructure solution that enables senior living operators to deliver a technology experience that optimizes resident satisfaction.


According to an Xfinity Communities survey conducted in October 2018, seniors demand fast and reliable Wi-Fi service when considering an independent living or assisted living community, and they expect to have full connectivity throughout the community.

Qypsys’ scalable, flexible, and reliable fiber optic networks resolve bandwidth issues experienced with traditional copper-based networks and can provide significant savings in space, power, and capital. With fiber infrastructure, organizations can expand their offerings without disrupting connectivity. Services that integrate with Qypsys’ fiber network include:

  • Resident Phone, Internet, and TV («Triple Play»)
  • Nurse Call
  • Wander Management
  • Telemedicine
  • Life Safety Systems
  • Virtual Reality Platforms
  • Smart Living Systems (e.g., Alexa)

Using Qypsys’ Private Broadband solution to deliver «Triple Play» to residents lets operators maintain control and produces a revenue stream to offset capital expenditures and in-house IT staff.

«Today’s seniors are connecting to more devices, making the need for speed and reliability from technologies something senior housing operators should be thinking about and investing in,» says Qypsys President Alan Bertsch. «Qypsys’ fiber infrastructure allows operators to satisfy residents’ demand for online access and to manage the rise in demand for new devices.»
