Wireless communications provider, Integrated Wireless has deployed a wireless staff safety solution for Melbourne’s Dandenong Hospital Emergency Department.
Integrated Wireless used a Wi-Fi based Real Time Location System (RTLS) developed by US-based Wi-Fi RTLS supplier, Ekahau.
The Dandenong Hospital required a communications system for its emergency department that would work with the existing Motorola Wi-Fi network and NEC IP-PBX. It allows staff to be located in real time, plus be able to transmit two-way text messages, sound a duress alarm to summon security, and make voice calls.
Integrated Wireless designed the hardware and software solution incorporating Ekahau’s RTLS Controller (ERC) software for managing location.
“Ekahau’s patented location software provides location accuracy and can be installed on any hardware device with a Wi-Fi antenna, turning those devices into de facto tags,” Integrated sales and marketing director, Feargal O’Farrell, said in a statement.
