ENABLE BETTER PATIENT CARE WITH SECURE MANAGED WI-FI
In hospitals, wireless connectivity is becoming the mainstream method for communication in healthcare delivery systems – doctors and nurses are able to provide patients with better care, work more efficiently, and lower overall costs. However, designing a Wi-Fi network for a hospital can also be very challenging when considering how to properly manage the wireless spectrum and the potential interference with other equipment. To accommodate complex hospital requirements, Edgecore’s access points are optimized to operate smoothly in a crowded environment. When combined with a comprehensive set of AP management features, proper network planning, and spectrum analysis functionality, hospital IT administrators are able to significantly reduce the amount of wireless interference, ensuring that life-critical healthcare applications are not interrupted.
Optimized Wi-Fi for Hospital Environments
With increasing demand for Wi-Fi in patient waiting rooms and expanding usage of mobile medical carts and tablet-based medical applications, it is even more crucial for hospital Wi-Fi networks to be robust and reliable. Edgecore’s Wi-Fi solution allows hospitals to completely segregate the network between healthcare professionals and guests, and assign higher traffic priority to doctors and nurses for life-critical applications. Together with proper network planning and configuration, hospital IT administrators can ensure ubiquitous coverage and optimal wireless performance.Learn More
Providing Better Healthcare Information
Hospitals can enable the Service Zone functionality on Edgecore’s EWS gateway-controller as a medium to provide quick and relevant healthcare information to patients and guests. For example, when patients and their families login to Wi-Fi from the pediatric wing, they can be presented with advertisements and digital brochures relevant to common pediatric health concerns. And to simplify the guest Wi-Fi account creation process, Edgecore offers a flexible on-demand API that can be easily integrated with patient data systems.Learn More
Reliable Wireless with High Mobility
Seamless roaming and uninterrupted connectivity as doctors and nurses move from one patient to the next is an essential requirement for hospital Wi-Fi networks. Network administrators can utilize the connectivity thresholds on Edgecore access points to mitigate typical sources of wireless congestion, such as the sticky client behavior or devices associating to APs that are too far away. Along with fine-grained user access control offered by Edgecore’s EWS gateway-controller, hospitals can intelligently allocate available network resources and provide an uninterrupted Wi-Fi experience.
