NHS Grampian has selected UK-based Carillion IT Services to provide a new wireless infrastructure. The wireless network, Carillion says, is in partnership with NHS Grampian at its Foresterhill campus in Aberdeen.

Under the agreement, Carillion claims it will install what is currently Cisco’s largest Wireless Local Area Network deployment in the healthcare market for its powerful 1142 Access Point. The wireless network will support the three Aberdeen Hospitals and will integrate with NHS’s security and authentication protocols, the company says.

According to Carillion, the Scottish organization plans on using its network for VoIP and implementing RFID to monitor medical equipment in the future.

The NHS Grampian campus includes Aberdeen Royal Infirmary, Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital and Aberdeen Maternity Hospital. NHS Grampian is responsible for delivering the healthcare of nearly half a million people, spread over 3000 square miles, in urban and rural communities in this region of Scotland.
