Hospital wireless WANs supplied by LGC Wireless

Internetnews.com/wireless reports on LGC Wireless and its antenna systems for providing WAN wireless service for hospitals:

The company has also deployed multiple-network systems at more than 60 hospitals across the country, including Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. These systems are designed to handle Wi-Fi, as well as 2G and 3G cellular networks.

Hospital deployments are significant since these are places that usually ban cell phone use due to concerns about interference with sensitive medical instruments.

The only problem LGC has encountered, however, is coverage since hospitals are typically packed with lots of equipment and are "highly dense environments," Spindler [VP of marketing for LGC] said. As a result, "you may only get 10,000 square feet of coverage per access unit."
