AirMagnet and InfoLogix help healthcare organizations successfully deploy and manage high-performance wireless networks.
SUNNYVALE, CA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AirMagnet Inc., the leader in security, performance and compliance solutions for wireless LANs (WLAN), announced that the company has partnered with InfoLogix (NASDAQ: IFLG), a leading provider of healthcare mobility and RFID solutions. InfoLogix is integrating AirMagnet's award-winning WLAN management and troubleshooting tools into its comprehensive suite of total healthcare mobility solutions, to help accurately deploy, monitor and secure mission critical wireless networks at healthcare customer sites. The two companies will each be demonstrating these solutions at the upcoming HIMSS Conference in Orlando, FL, Feb. 24 to 28.
"Modern healthcare facilities present some of the most challenging and complex environments for deploying wireless. Not only are there densely packed technology and X-ray facilities that can cause performance and interference problems, but also a variety of security issues that need to be handled according to federal standards," said Jason Fradin, vice president of marketing at InfoLogix. "By incorporating AirMagnet Enterprise and their mobile field tools into our suite of total mobility solutions, we're better able to monitor the security and performance of our customer's WLAN locations—anywhere in the world from one central console."
AirMagnet is the leader in security, performance and compliance solutions for WLANs. Its products are deployed in hundreds of hospitals and healthcare organizations throughout the world. The company's flagship product, AirMagnet Enterprise, provides a simple, scalable WLAN monitoring solution that allows healthcare organizations to proactively mitigate all types of wireless threats, enforce enterprise policies, prevent performance problems and audit the regulatory compliance of all their Wi-Fi assets and users worldwide. The solution even offers built-in policy management and pass/fail compliance reports for the Healthcare Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) standards that deal with wireless networking.
"WLAN performance and troubleshooting tools are vital to ensure that critical healthcare applications—such as mobility workstations or physician PDAs—run seamlessly across the WLAN," said Chris Roeckl, vice president of marketing at AirMagnet. "Not only does AirMagnet help ensure optimal performance for InfoLogix deployments, but we also provide the extra features that allow healthcare organizations to remain compliant and proactively plan and manage the wireless network. When combined, AirMagnet and InfoLogix offer a powerful solution for healthcare professionals."
