Wireless LANs and mobile technologies promise to transform the healthcare industry by increasing efficiency and reducing costs while improving the quality of patient care. The wireless LAN can support mobile patient monitoring, asset tracking and voice and rich media systems, and enable clinicians to capture patient information at the point of care.

But hospitals and other healthcare facilities represent hostile environments for Wi-Fi networks. Metal objects, shielded rooms and RF interference pose significant challenges. In fact, most of the reliability issues with hospital WLANs can be traced to the RF layer due to the inherently difficult and dynamic nature of the wireless environment.

RedCell Technologies’ engineers conduct in-depth site surveys and noise and interference tests, and apply their deep understanding of physics and RF to design a “medical-grade” WLAN. Our engineers will then implement a pervasive wireless solution that can:

• Handle growing user densities and bandwidth requirements
• Enable seamless roaming
• Carry voice, video and data traffic
• Support mission-critical applications and sensitive devices
• Provide high availability
• Ensure security and privacy

We also understand that many healthcare facilities have small IT staff that may lack expertise in WLANs. We build single-pane-of-glass management into every solution, and offer comprehensive support and managed services that speed problem resolution..
