The Growth of Wi-Fi in Healthcare

Healthcare Systems today are deploying Wi-Fi in an exponential rate.  It is becoming the fabric of the mobility environment that has become a utility.  This is required not only for the embracement of the EMR and voice but also for the myriad of mobile medical device applications such as patient monitoring and infusion therapy.  Integra Systems will be developing an upcoming white paper with Enterasys Networks that will focus on the unique 2012 and beyond requirements of the healthcare Wi-Fi.   The white paper will detail out that the Wi-Fi of today and tomorrow has to meet not only the technology requirements; but also the fiscal requirements.  It will further demonstrate that Enterasys does exceed the enterprise technology requirements, but also provides the best CAPEX, OPEX, and overall TCO of any wired/wireless networked solution in the market today.
