I’m sure that we have all experienced poorly designed Wi-Fi networks in medical environments. When a technology is so ubiquitous, so easily accessible, and is increasingly the most relied upon method of Internet access for mobile devices and medical information systems / EPD / cloud computing, then there are bound to be some issues. Unfortunately, the prevalence of underperforming Wi-Fi networks is still much too common for my liking.

 

The medical industry needed a high performance, yet secure, solution to this mobility problem. The answer lies with fast secure roaming, whereby initial network access requires full authentication through the 802.1X process, with subsequent access only requiring verification of the initial authentication event. Vendors initially responded with pre-standard fast secure roaming solutions such as Opportunistic Key Caching (OKC) and Cisco Centralized Key Management (CCKM) to fill the gap.

 

However, lack of coordination among infrastructure vendors led to multiple competing methods and has resulted in fragmented client device support throughout the medical industry. Great Wi-Fi starts with proper design. There are various approaches to WLAN design that have evolved over time, ranging from providing basic coverage to maximum capacity and situations in-between.
