The Ekahau RTLS (Real Time Location Systems) technology from Ekahau Inc has been integrated into a health care telecommunications system developed by LPS Services Inc of Switzerland. Ekahau RTLS will provide location tracking capabilities to HEALTHCAREwireless, which is LPS Services’ communications solution that combines voice, data, video streaming, telemetry, guest access, and mobile nurse call functionality into a single system.

This software-based solution operates over any brand or generation of enterprise Wi-Fi network and offers sub-room- to campus-level accuracy while tracking tens of thousands of individuals or assets from a single server.

“The healthcare industry is seeing the benefits of delivering communications, patient data and asset location information to staffers wherever they are within the campus,” said Dirk Lenz, Regional Director at Ekahau. “LPS Services’ HEALTHCAREwireless, combined with Ekahau RTLS, is a complete solution for state-of-the-art mobile needs at health care facilities.”
