7SIGNAL, The Wi-Fi Performance Company, is pleased to announce that The Christ Hospital Health Network has completed the first phase of its deployment of 7SIGNAL's Wi-Fi performance management system for enhancing Wi-Fi experiences across its network. The solution includes a system of software and client devices that continually monitor and measure Wi-Fi experiences for patients, doctors, nurses, clinicians, and guests. Wi-Fi performance data is crowdsourced from hundreds of mobile devices and 7SIGNAL analytics tell IT staff where Wi-Fi experiences need additional care and attention.
"The patient experience depends on doctors, nurses, and clinicians having reliable Wi-Fi for fast access to important systems required for delivering exceptional care," stated Tom Barrett, CEO for 7SIGNAL. "It's wonderful to see Christ Hospital incorporate our system of Wi-Fi telemetry for hospitals and healthcare."
According to James Vajda, Senior Wi-Fi Engineer for The Christ Hospital Health Network and Certified Wireless Network Expert, the most important wireless enabled application is Voice over Wi-Fi. "We have about 1,000 Cisco 7925 phones and their performance can be sensitive to any RF disruptions. We use those for critical business processes in the hospital. We also have workstations on wheels (WOWs) that we run Citrix clients on, where the EMR application is served. Those are constantly moving up and down the halls and need good wireless performance also."
