Case Study #4:
Scottsdale Healthcare - Scottsdale, AZ
Three medical centers with more than 800 beds and service areas of oncology, cardiology, and orthopedics.
Unique physical barriers that shield signal include wall structure and density, X-ray rooms, and coated glass. In addition to numerous patient and visitor complaints, the physicians preferred to use cell phones rather than the hospital’s paging system. The installation could not interfere with emergency frequencies or security radio.
An active, distributed antenna system (DAS) infrastructure connected to a series of indoor antennas, providing dedicated capacity to the medical center.
The solution used the hospital’s existing fiber to save time and money. The installation resulted in improved quality of care and increased productivity.
