A reliable Wi-Fi network can be a life-saver

Medical personnel will use laptops or other mobile devices to perform their duties, these mobile devices need to have a fast and stable Wi-Fi connection everywhere they go. Access points that are placed in the corridor might not be sufficient to provide a good signal strength in patient rooms.

Voice or Wi-Fi are becoming more and more a standard in a modern healtcare environment. To provide seamless roaming with voice over Wi-Fi we need a decent wifi design with enough cell overlap to make sure these mobile voice handset can roam without loosing voice quality.

Confidential information about patients should be secured as much as possible, we need to protect the data on the Wi-Fi network from eavesdropping or man-in-the-middle attacks. AHFIBIT can help you design your Wi-Fi network so that it can pass a security audit with flying colors !

Frequently asked question for Wi-Fi in healthcare

To make your network sufficiently secure, we recommend using the latest security methods such as WPA3. With WPA3 and a sufficiently long password, your security will greatly improve. Ultimately, you can supplement it with server infrastructure such as RADIUS.

To implement voice over Wi-Fi, we recommend conducting a site survey to validate your Wi-Fi network. Voice over Wi-Fi is very sensitive, if the network is not ready to process real-time applications such as voice, the user will experience poor call quality.

Access points in the corridor will provide great connectivity in the corridor but once you get in the roams, the signal strength might degrade very quickly. A Wi-Fi design with access points in the corridor can cause bad roaming experience for highly mobile devices.
