Hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities face exploding demand for Wi-Fi, whether to meet the needs of the 90+% of physicians with smartphones or to connect the multitude of medical devices that increasingly are networked over Wi-Fi to provide real time monitoring, precise locating and support patient centred workflows.
Wi-Fi enables fast access to electronic patient records (EPR), improves staff communication, and speeds up delivery of medical images. In addition, guest Wi-Fi access can be extended to visitors in lobbies and waiting rooms.
With lots of mobile users, thick walls and innumerable electrical devices, healthcare environments are typically hostile RF environments. So vanilla-grade, sickly WiFi just doesn’t cut it.
