Today’s healthcare facilities have transformed into high-tech hubs that not only demand robust cellular connectivity in-building, but often across expansive outdoor environments too. A medical center’s wireless network is critical for multiple purposes such as enhancing patient care and safety, increasing staff productivity, improving operations, and keeping family and friends connected. To accommodate these various needs, healthcare facilities are turning to converged networks. The wireless system must support a wide range of frequencies, different protocols, any modulation scheme, and it must be future-proof. The ultimate goal is to provide strong wireless connectivity in-building and across a medical campus cost-effectively.

Staff need to stay connected and informed as they travel from building to building, and smart phones are the device of choice with 77 percent of organizations supporting them.”
