Dell, Intel, Motion Computing join for healthcare IT app
Joint effort provides point of care wireless network assessment for healthcare.  
Dell, Intel and Motion Computing have jointly launched a new service to assess, design and validate the quality and coverage of wireless networks for healthcare information workflow.

The new Mobile Point of Care (MPOC) Wireless Assessment service enables healthcare customers to assess whether their wireless network is reliable and can provide 100 percent coverage and 24/7 access to patient information. The service provides wired and wireless network analysis, design and validation, the Round Rock, Texas-based Dell said.

The companies said that the MPOC Wireless Assessment service is a customizable network design and implementation that can include:
  • Site survey and radio frequency (RF) analysis: RF spectrum analysis and detection tools discover interference on existing networks while a physical evaluation of the facility evaluates issues that could adversely affect network performance;
  • Wireless network design: Network modeling and tools are used to develop network design architecture, enabling the construction and placement of wireless network components; and
  • Network validation: Once deployed, an analysis can be performed on the wireless network and a report is provided for future growth and maintenance needs.
