Healthcare Case Studies
Healthcare facilities encompass many different types of buildings, including Hospitals, Primary Care Units, Rehabilitations Centres and Private Clinics. All of the people in these facilities require excellent voice and data signal in order to carry out their duties. Mobile signal is not only required for making phone calls and browsing the internet in these facilities, it is also required for devices such as eParking machines, mobile VISA terminals, and applications such as google Pay apps and QR code scanning apps. These modern convenient apps are essential for enhancing patient and staff experience and also improves the overall efficiency of the facility.
How to improve the mobile signal in Hospitals?
Choose a system that is a scalable solution for large sprawling campuses
Hospitals are generally large, sprawling buildings where a variety of activities are carried out. Some areas contain sensitive medical equipment, while other areas are occupied by people: the canteen, restaurant facilities, patient wards, waiting rooms, offices and maintenance rooms. Each of these spaces has a different set of requirements in terms of which people and equipment need mobile signal. Stella’s DAS system is a scalable mobile solution that can cover any sized building, adapting to suit the requirements of the hospital while amplifying the signal to all GSM devices including mobile phones, VISA machines and eParking metres.
Ensure the system supports all operators and unlimited numbers of people
There are different stakeholders in a healthcare building, from the staff who work in the building, such as medical staff, admin staff, maintenance staff, cleaning staff, and also patients and family members who visit the hospital. All of these people require mobile signal to communicate with their phones. Stella repeaters support an unlimited number of users, allowing them access to 5G, 4G, 3G voice and data with all operators.
Choose a solution that considers Cyber Security and GDPR
Cyber attack risks are increasing. Hospitals need to protect their networks while at the same time providing mobile communication throughout the building. A Stella repeater allows all visitors and staff to make calls and access mobile data while using their own data plan on campus. This enables the hospital to keep their own network private and protected without exposing it to the public (or staff).
Ensure the system is a cost effective and future proofed technology
Hospitals are under pressure to run economically. Enabling people in the hospital to use their phones at work is cost effective in many ways. By enabling patients and staff to use their phones while in the hospital, time is saved, less staff are needed, less paper is printed and used, and fewer errors are reported. This allows the hospital to greatly improve their green footprint for a very small initial input of energy.
The Stella iRepeaters amplify the 5G signal from the mobile operators, and network providers offer speeds of up to 200Mb with average data packages. The operators continuously improve their network and their data speeds are increased dramatically year after year. The Stella iRepeater amplifies the signal from the operators, and by installing a Stella iRepeater, the system allows the latest technology from the mobile operators to function. This makes the Stella iRepeater System by far the most professional and future proofed system available.
