Laird recently released a new white paper discussing the importance of testing Wi-Fi for medical devices. The white paper, titled Testing Wi-Fi Functionality in Wi-Fi for Medical Devices, is an excellent tool for medical device manufacturers looking to embed Wi-Fi radios into their products. The white paper can be downloaded here.

Hospitals present challenges to reliable Wi-Fi connectivity and many medical device applications require secure and persistent network connections. To ensure reliable functionality, a Wi-Fi radio that is embedded in a medical device must be tested thoroughly. But where, and how? This white paper answers those questions and goes into detail on suggested key requirements that should be tested, including:

  • RF performance
  • Interoperability with popular Wi-Fi infrastructures
  • Security
  • Mobility

Medical device manufacturers that ensure their embedded Wi-Fi modules are thoroughly tested are one step closer to Making the Connected Hospital a Reality.
