Cisco Meraki platform delivers multiple SSID's for comprehensive WiFi solution.

Background

EcoLogic were introduced to Sue Ryder Care by our Partner Phoenix IT.

Sue Ryder had two objectives:

  • Delivering Guest WiFi for the resident’s family and friends

  • First Class and consistent Wireless accessibility for all medical staff across the care home.

EcoLogic were able to provide a solution based on the ability of the Cisco Meraki platform to provide multiple SSID’s for specific controlled access of Guest and Medical Staff, and all Cloud Managed.

Benefits

There was an immediate engagement with the technology that delivered all required functionality and more. The feature rich Cisco Meraki platform allowed fully remote management of:

  • Care home daily activities and medical staff bedside access
  • Priority of throughput in the event of application conflict for doctors and nurses
  • Access to IP Telephony throughout the care homes
  • Guest WiFi for residents, family and friends for entertainment and social media.

Deployment

As well as immediate acceptance of the technology, there was ease of management and ability to deliver key needs throughout the Sue Ryder care home estate. 

“Sue Ryder is confident that EcoLogic will help its facilities to sustain staff and patient satisfaction, by providing the former with real-time access to patient records at the bedside, and the latter with high quality and reliable internet connectivity. 

Lots of our patients were requesting internet access as it is an invaluable benefit for those that can be with us for days, weeks or even months. EcoLogic was the right choice for us because patients and staff can access the internet at the same time, and it offers the perfect balance between affordability and performance.

What sealed the deal was the technology’s security capabilities, ease of use and great value for money.”
