Metrix Group Changes Name to Brink Medical Group

SAN DIEGO --(Business Wire)--

The organization formerly known as Metrix Group, a distributor of high demand Class I surgical equipment products, has announced that it has formally changed its name and will now be known as Brink Medical Group.

Other than the name and new logo, there will be no change to the company's comprehensive, user friendly on-line store, designed to provide the hospital, surgery center, trauma center and veterinary communities with quick, easy and affordable access to the tools of their trade.

"The new name and brand are a more accurate representation of who we are as an organization," said Brink President & CEO, M. Ross Simmonds. "With innovative tools and an easy, state-of-the-art online methodology for clinical professionals to obtain them, we believe we are on the verge - or brink - of a new paradigm in medical equipment purchasing. Our management team members each have decades of experience working with hospital and trauma personnel at all levels, and we've put our all into this concept. We're very proud of it."

Simmonds added that most Brink Medical products are identical in materials, dimensions and quality to the instruments and disposables commonly considered industry-wide gold standards - the difference beig more budget-friendly price points and products that can literally be ordered "by the each." This means that customers need not purchase minimum bulk quantities of products that they may only need infrequently. They can now purchase the exact quantity they need, whether by the box or individually, from Brink's intuitive, easy-to-navigate site.

All Brink products are sold packaged single sterile. In addition to Brink's discounted pricing, Brink products free the customer from the need to sterilize product on premises. Reduction in sterilization costs, liability and manpower equals additional value for the money.

Brink also continues to be the national distributor of Cingular (News - Alert) brand products, including the groundbreaking CingleBit, CinglePin and CinglePin Threaded single-use sterile tools, and will continue to add innovative lines of surgical tools to its product offerings in the coming months.

Establishing a customer account with Brink Medical Group can be done by phone or online and will provide site users preferred access to discounted pricing. Brink's convenient web ordering system eliminates the costs associated with issuing purchase orders. First time customers can simply fill out an application for an account online and be placing orders within 24 hours.

Brink Medical Group is an online medical device store focused on the main goal of saving customers money while improving the buying process. Designed to enable the hospital and trauma center community with quick, easy and affordable access to the tools of their trade without compromising quality, Brink provides the healthcare supply chain and practitioners with the specific products they need - when they need them, "taking the same dimensions to a whole new dimension." Brink is also a full line logistics company for start-up and emerging organizations and their technologies. Visit www.brinkmedical.com for more details.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
