Solutions for Healthcare

Optimized Wi-Fi coverage should never mean compromising patient safety.

A Healthcare Facility's Top Objective is to Protect Patients.

Dust, mold, and fungal spores found in the space above a suspended ceiling are dangerous to patients. Holes in ceiling tiles to pass antennas or cables is not acceptable in hospitals, as these openings in the ceiling readily pass particles. Lifting ceiling tiles often requires a tent to be constructed around the work area. Wireless access points should be mounted in an enclosure which allows access to the equipment without lifting or penetrating the ceiling or tenting.

Oberon simplifies ICRA procedure compliance for healthcare facilities while providing optimal wireless coverage.

Features & Benefits

Oberon designs with security and compliance in mind to simplify your installation experience.

HIPAA requires that hospitals limit physical access to electronic information systems, such as access points. Many of Oberon’s ceiling and wall enclosures are lockable, limiting physical access to the AP and associated data cable and connector to comply with HIPPA policy.

With the rise of wireless medical devices such as infusion pumps, patient monitoring, and more, there is a growing need for stable wireless networks. Oberon offers many solutions to ensure you have optimal wireless coverage in all environments.

Infection Control Risk Assessment (ICRA) procedures can have a serious impact on cabling installation, moves, adds, and changes, especially in above-ceiling spaces where tenting is required if ceiling tiles are lifted. Oberon’s ceiling enclosures feature solid back-boxes which create a barrier to the above ceiling space. Wi-Fi and small cell access points can be accessed without tenting which is a key factor in risk mitigation.
