As the world continues to grapple with the coronavirus pandemic, local governments are finding innovative ways to combat its spread. One such way is utilizing 5G and Wi-Fi 6 technology to set up mobile testing stations for COVID-19 tests. The benefits of Wi-Fi 6 are many and include higher data rates for improved connectivity, increased capacity of up to four times that of 5G networks and enhanced battery life for devices that use it. These wireless communications have also been key in expanding implementation of mobile medical care while supporting features such as IoT devices, emergency communications, streaming medical telemetry and video data. In order to make sure that healthcare organizations refresh their networks quickly and efficiently to manage the influx of new devices and services amidst this crisis, CDW has implemented hybrid solutions which combine both Wi-Fi 6 and 5G technology. By leveraging these technologies, healthcare providers can ensure fast response time and secure network architectures which improve remote operations during this delicate period. Additionally, CDW’s solutions allow for seamless integration with existing systems resulting in an improved user experience for patients making use of these technologies.
Wi-Fi 6 technology greatly enhances the capabilities available from conventional access point designs which helps with faster network speeds enabling efficient transmission of information between supported devices, especially when there is a large number of them connected at once. This robust system helps carry out various tasks such as telemedicine appointments, patient monitoring remotely through wearable sensors or streaming high resolution video footage securely over long distances without any disruption in service quality or latency issues. The advancements in 5G and Wi-Fi 6 technologies have made it possible for mobile medical care support services such as disaster preparedness protocols, medical imaging applications, remote diagnosis tools etc., become a reality in today’s times where speed plays an important role in the amount of lives saved or helped during emergencies or medical crises. Through swift response time, seamless integration with existing systems and impressive user experience capabilities, Wi-Fi 6 offers many advantages which are being used by governments around the world to combat COVID-19 in a more efficient manner. With CDW’s hybrid solutions paving the way for better communication between health workers and patients during this delicate period, healthcare organizations are better able to manage their workloads while remaining safe at all times.
