MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aerohive Networks® (NYSE: HIVE), a Cloud Networking leader, today announced that Miami Jewish Health Systems selected Aerohive to run complex wireless healthcare solutions across its numerous medical facilities and research laboratories.
Miami Jewish Health was founded in Miami, Florida in 1940 and serves more than 12,000 patients across more than a dozen facilities, offering programs in rehabilitation, medical care and research, and residential living facilities which provide assisted and independent living. More than 800 employees take part in programs for elder care, hospice and memory care.
The IT team recognized the need to upgrade its wireless network across all 15 physical sites. The existing solution did not utilize 802.11ac access points and the healthcare provider also required additional security features and higher availability. Network demand was increasing due to technologies like RFID scanning and real-time tracking.
“Miami Jewish Health is very different from an acute or post-acute healthcare setting, and the requirements are varied and complex across numerous types of care,” explains Bernie Larralde, vice president of information technology at Miami Jewish Health. “We looked for a Wi-Fi solution that could meet the demands of our patients and residents, as well as carry us into the future to introduce new technologies and solutions for our patients and staff. We are confident Aerohive can continue to partner with us to deliver a secure and efficient wireless network as we implement real-time tracking and VoIP in the near future.”
The use of five separate Electronic Health Record (EHR) applications and the adoption of VoIP made for a more complex environment across its multiple levels of service and care. Miami Jewish began to evaluate different wireless solution providers, including Meraki, Meru and Ruckus and chose Aerohive for future scalability and the capability to implement new technology.
Miami Jewish Health Systems deployed Aerohive AP250 and AP1130 access points across all facilities, including residential campuses equipped with outdoor Wi-Fi access to provide continuous coverage.
HiveManager NG is implemented for next-generation cloud network management, and Aerohive’s PPSK feature allows unique authentication keys to individual devices or groups of users on the same SSID. PoE capabilities did not require second power supply or additional switches, providing a cost advantage for the healthcare provider.
