Join Panduit and Oberon on Thursday, June 28, as we present Connecting Critical Systems: Deploying Networks in Healthcare Environments

We don't have to tell you the impact technology is having on healthcare ... changes are fast and furious! Digital systems drive everything from medical records and imaging to surgery and pharmacy dispensing. With so many critical systems relying on technology, it's more important than ever that the network be able to support whatever systems are implemented today – and tomorrow!

Join us on Thursday, June 28, at 12pm CST, as Panduit and Oberon look at some best practices in deploying networks in hospitals, clinics, and medical offices. This 60-minute webinar will look at TIA standards that govern healthcare networks, how to deploy wired and wireless networks, and applications like Power over Ethernet and intelligent lighting.

By attending this webinar, you can expect to learn:

  • What type of cabling best meets the network demands of healthcare facilities
  • TIA requirements for cabling, outlets, wireless and more
  • Best practices for installing wireless access points in hospitals
  • How intelligent lighting can improve patient outcomes

 Past Webinar Presentations

Bree Murphy photoMany schools, municipalities and corporations are moving to a campus-wide Wi-Fi everywhere model. For outdoor installations, access points are typically mounted on top of buildings, on the sides of buildings, or on light poles. For maintenance, code, and aesthetics reasons, mounting on buildings and light poles is becoming less acceptable. Wi-Fi bollards present ideal solutions for the wireless designer, outside plant manager, and architect.

A Wi-Fi bollard is a standalone facility which contains the access point, antennas, cabling, and associated powering and switching equipment. The bollard is designed to be installed precisely where the wireless coverage is required, is acceptable from an aesthetics standpoint, protects and secures the equipment, and is transparent to the wireless signal. In this presentation, attendees will learn about outdoor Wi-Fi installation options, aesthetics requirements, and cabling to and powering outdoor Wi-Fi equipment.

This presentation focuses on emerging WiFi technology and standards. The IEEE 802.11ac Wireless network standard advances mobile networking to unprecedented capabilities. WiFi is ubiquitous in practically every vertical, and it more important than ever to plan for wireless in the cabling infrastructure.

Bree Murphy photoThis presentation is geared to the cabling, wireless and networking professional who needs an update on emerging standards and trends. The presentation will describe the advances of 802.11ac Wave 1 and Wave 2, the push for an “NBASE-T” standard for supporting greater than 1 Gig cabling to the WiFi access points, and Power over Ethernet to support this wireless technology. The presentation will also provide insight into how to physically install the WiFi APs for optimum performance, physical security, aesthetics, and code compliance in different verticals such as healthcare and public schools.
