Whitepaper: Real-time Location Systems (RTLS) In Healthcare: Wi-Not Wi-Fi?

by Awarepoint CorporationAug 01, 2009

CIOs must ask some very important questions to appraise the cost and value of Wi-Fi-based RTLS: Are you really using existing infrastructure? What is the cost (in time and expertise) for on-going maintenance of Wi-Fi RTLS? How will Wi-Fi RTLStraffic affect your network? The �just add water� story Wi-Fi marketers publicize loses steam in real-world applications. Once you�ve optimized your Wi-Fi infrastructure for RTLS, you will need extensive location planning of highly trained individuals to keep it calibrated. Hospital administrators who select Wi-Fi-based RTLS will be quickly disenchanted to find that with the increased �noise� Wi-Fi RTLS tags generate, Wi-Fi communications performance will degrade.
