Business Needs

In order to maintain a high level of care for patients 24/7, a continuous and reliable mobile signal is imperative. The hospital needs to improve this in all areas of the existing and planned hospital extension. Specifically, mobile signal is needed near patient beds, recovery rooms, consultation suites, operating theatres and administration areas. Mobile signal for all three network operators (Optus, Telstra and Vodafone) was also a requirement for this proof of concept.

Multi-Carrier Solution

The initial assessment by Powertec dealer, Proeye Communications & Security Systems, indicated that once the extension construction was finished that the signal strength will become patchy at best. Proeye Communications & Security Systems skilfully implemented their Cel-Fi enhancer to allow two Cel-Fi PRO units to operate without interference. The Optus and Vodafone coverage is provided via the Cel-Fi Pro whilst two Cel-Fi GO units provide the boosted Telstra signal.

Business Benefits

The Cel-Fi GO/PRO installation was a great success, providing mobile signal coverage across all areas of the hospital. Simultaneous coverage for all three network providers was also successful. The hospital now receives a strong mobile signal — a great benefit to the hospital, including staff, patients and visitors.
