Oncology Diagnosis and Treatment Center of Brasov, Romania
ICCO/Romtelecom proposed an NEC UNIVERGE SV8100 communication server along with IP DECT wireless infrastructure to provide full coverage for mobile communications throughout the centre.
The system supports approximately 150 fi xed telephone terminals (analogue and IP) and over 100 wireless IP DECT phones and messaging devices. The medical staff use the G955 and I755 IP DECT handsets. The latter are specially designed for use in demanding environments. Patients are provided with NEC’s M155 messaging devices.
These hygienic wrist band sets are easy to wear and use and enable direct voice contact as well as messaging/alarming.
NEC’s DECT infrastructure is connected with Ekahau’s Real Time Location Solution. The ICCO messaging application collects data from both solutions, interprets them and sends them to the central reception indicating the location of the sender.
The leading RTLS solution from Ekahau, directly displays the location of the patient – assuring the right level of care – at the right location. The centre expects to further enhance the solution soon with Business ConneCT Operator.
