Deploying Temporary or Permanent Wi-Fi Networks Outside the Healthcare Facility

March 25, 2020

Hospitals will frequently provide outdoor Wi-Fi in entry ways, parking lots and garages, screening areas, and outdoor patient areas. While outdoor Wi-Fi networks typically engage APs with extended temperature ranges, it is desirable to protect, secure and conceal the access point and associated cabling, connectors and antennas.  These outdoor Wi-Fi networks may be temporary installations for events or screening areas, or they may be permanently installed. Oberon offers a wide variety of rugged, NEMA-4 (waterproof) low-loss plastic SkybarTM enclosures and NetPointTM wireless bollards for APs and antennas from every vendor.
