Healthcare Connectivity Solutions

Our Wi-Fi and Wireless solution requirements are continuously growing in healthcare, with more groups evolving and becoming more connected.

Throughout healthcare, the need for fast, reliable and secure Wi-Fi solutions is rapidly growing with the emergence of connected medical equipment. Having a consistent connection benefits both patients and staff for a more effective and efficient way of working.

Patients have more control of their own care using online digital services, alleviating the pressure from staff allowing them to tend to the most urgent cases.

Patients can access their own health records and book appointments while in the facility, and Wi-Fi allows them to keep in touch with their loved ones from their bed.

Self check-in and automated updates and requests for patients also makes staying a bit easier. The more connected healthcare groups can become in the future, the better the levels of care that can be provided.

Healthcare Wi-Fi Requirements

Ease of Use

Easy access to the connection ensures each patient and their family members can connect their own devices quickly and securely.

Separate Network Configuration

Separating your network into two separate patient-facing and private-facing systems to operate independently to ensure bandwidth is covered for both.

Strong Coverage and Performance

Providing speeds and bandwidth to cover all the required devices within the building, all while ensuring the performance is paramount.
