Trapeze Networks, manufacturer of wireless LAN (WLAN) Mobility Systems announced that Walcheren Hospital in Vlissingen, Netherlands, has recently installed an enterprise-grade Trapeze WLAN throughout its cardiology and paediatrics wards. In the Walcheren cardiology ward, the Trapeze WLAN enables physicians to capture digital electrocardiogram (ECG) images from the patient’s bedside and study those images and test results from anywhere in the hospital. In the paediatrics ward, young patients are able to use laptops donated by the local Rotary Club to access the Internet, e-mail, online education media and entertainment resources via the WLAN. The idea is to provide all the comforts of home for young patients in the pediatrics ward. For the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) staff at Walcheren Hospital, wireless access offered substantial benefits over a wired network. Flexibility, simpler management, strong security and lower operating costs were cited as advantages.
