Reliable and seamless communication between medical devices improves patient safety, cuts costs, and streamlines operations. The manufacture-independent solution for achieving this connectivity is using the standardized Service-oriented Device Connectivity (SDC) protocol, a part of the IEEE 11073 family.

SDC facilitates a secure and dynamic network of point-of-care medical devices, fostering efficient communication within the operating room and hospital environment. The seamless functioning of standardized SDC communication relies on the adherence of SDC interfaces to the established standard. At Vector, we recognize the critical role of validated SDC interfaces in promoting secure and standardized communication within the healthcare ecosystem.

Vector tools are tailored to support SDC development, offering a comprehensive range of services from simulating SDC devices to conducting system and integration tests. We are dedicated to providing the necessary resources to facilitate every step of your SDC development process, ensuring a robust and reliable outcome for your project.
