St. Trudo Hospital, a 310-bed hospital that serves the Limburg and Vlaams-Brabant regions of Belgium, has installed a Cisco (San Jose, Calif.) Unified Wireless Network to support Redwood City, Calif.-based AeroScout’s Unified Asset Visibility (UAV) solution, including Wi-Fi-based active radio-frequency identification (RFID) tags to track and manage expensive specialty mattresses, IV pumps and wheelchairs that are required throughout the facility.

St. Trudo also uses the wireless network to accurately monitor the temperature inside the hospital’s data center, says the company.

Systems integrator and Cisco Gold Certified Partner, NextiraOne (Lawrence, Pa.) led the design and installation of the context-aware wireless network, composed of more than 250 access points.
