IGX Wireless Advanced Roaming Solution Empowers Medical Devices with Enhanced Connectivity



Austin, TX August , Intelligraphics Inc., the industry leader in intelligent advanced roaming solutions, announced IGX Wireless device drivers that combine IEEE 802.11ac connectivity and advanced roaming functionality in an integrated, secure, and flexible Wi-Fi solution designed specifically for high demand wireless networks.

Few markets require the high degree of mobility, high number of users, numerous advanced applications, and life critical safety demands of health care. The fusion of IGX Advanced Roaming and the 802.11ac standard allows medical device developers to take advantage of more channels, better traffic balancing, shorter off-the-air times, and a level of efficiency that enhances wireless performance and user experiences in high-density environments while optimizing battery life in equipped devices. IGX device drivers provide an infrastructure-agnostic solution that allows enterprises to quickly integrate and accelerate the value of mobile applications without replacing their existing IT investments.

In the early 2000’s, most medical institutions began to add Wi-Fi connectivity as a convenience to their staff and patients. During that time, networks handled only a few devices at a time. Today, a large number of medical and lab devices operate wirelessly, such as mobile imaging systems, electrocardiogram (EKG) carts, glucose monitors, temperature monitors, infusion pumps, scanners and numerous mobile hand held devices, while voice and video equipped robots allow physicians to make their daily rounds remotely. Hospital IT teams can see 10,000 wireless devices on their network at any given time some of which are constantly in motion and others that must remain connected continually.

IGX software seamlessly integrates with any existing IT infrastructure and provides optional enterprise-class security and CCX features. IGX Wireless Wi-Fi Advanced Roaming 802.11ac drivers allow wireless medical devices to scan and re-connect within milliseconds.

The BYOD, or “bring your own device” movement has also been accepted by hospitals worldwide. Sixty to seventy percent of clinical staff now use their own wireless devices at work. Tablets are a popular choice, especially among physicians, who use them to access electronic medical records and for streaming video. Intelligraphics’ IGX Wireless drivers support not only tablets and mobile monitoring devices but also more complex devices, such as Sonograms that send video images wirelessly.

“Helping the medical industry improve patient care using wireless technology is part of our core mission. We provide our customers with a secure, reliable, high quality solution with full support. Wireless medical devices are revolutionizing healthcare in hospitals, point of care facilities, and at home. Medical device manufacturers are using Intelligraphics’ solutions to get the very best security, performance and reliability for their wireless devices,” said Scott Lawson, President of Intelligraphics.

Intelligraphics, an industry leader in intelligent Wi-Fi advanced roaming solutions, helps enterprises realize the most value from their mission-critical wireless devices. A member of the Wi-Fi Alliance, a Texas Instruments 3rd Party Development Partner, and a charter member of the Qualcomm® Authorized Design Center (ADC) program, Intelligraphics delivers a diverse portfolio of software solutions that include enhanced and customized wireless drivers, firmware, and licensed IP solutions.
