Empowering IoT Healthcare with Wi-Fi HaLow: A New Era Unveiled
In the current landscape of the IoT healthcare industry, the effects of COVID-19 have prompted hospitals to adopt more remote IoT applications to counteract the shortage of medical personnel. By 2023, the revenue of the healthcare IoT market has already reached $93.82 billion, with an estimated annual growth rate of 12.32% projected until 2028.
The Internet of Things (IoT) has brought numerous advantages to the healthcare industry, including addressing workforce shortages, reducing contact risks, aiding hospitals in more effective asset management, and collecting vital patient data through wearable devices to detect diseases or early signs of illness. Additionally, IoT enables remote patient monitoring, improving access to care for individuals living in rural areas or those who find it difficult to leave their home
Despite the manifold benefits IoT brings to this domain, the current use of traditional Wi-Fi technology (Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E) for IoT still faces several challenges. Firstly, data usage costs are high, and the coverage range of traditional Wi-Fi is short, requiring mesh to achieve comprehensive coverage. Moreover, as more devices need to connect to networks, the risk of data breaches continues to grow.
Wi-Fi HaLow in Healthcare
In this context, the introduction of Wi-Fi HaLow technology offers a promising solution to address these challenges. Wi-Fi HaLow features low power consumption, extended range, and high penetrability. With just one Access Point (AP), it provides broader coverage compared to traditional Wi-Fi, with a range of up to 1 kilometer, significantly reducing installation costs. Furthermore, its high penetrability can overcome connectivity issues caused by obstructing walls. Wi-Fi HaLow also stands out for the elimination of licensing fees .
Data rates range from 150 Kbps to over 15 Mbps, making it more than sufficient for IoT applications.Additionally, Wi-Fi HaLow adheres to standard Wi-Fi technology, demonstrating backward compatibility. This means that devices supporting these new technologies can coexist with older Wi-Fi devices. Wi-Fi HaLow also emphasizes network security, employing WPA3 and DPP standards for protection, which aids in mitigating the risks of data leaks and unauthorized access.
Revolutionizing Healthcare with Wi-Fi HaLow: Enhanced Application Scenarios
In conjunction with Wi-Fi HaLow technology, the healthcare industry is poised for a revolutionary leap, ushering in smarter and more efficient applications. Below are several specific application scenarios that depict installation and usage contexts:
Within healthcare facilities, deploying Wi-Fi HaLow DIY Kit AWH575-L01 at the sensor end can achieve comprehensive patient health monitoring. Each sensor can instantly collect and transmit patients’ physiological data, such as heart rate, body temperature, and blood pressure, via Wi-Fi HaLow to the access point WiFi HaLow IoT Gateway AP7688-WHM. Medical professionals can effortlessly access and monitor the patients’ health data. This system significantly enhances the efficiency and precision of healthcare monitoring, while reducing the workload on medical personnel.
Utilizing Wi-Fi HaLow technology, medical devices equipped with Wi-Fi HaLow DIY Kit AWH575-L01 can establish a connection with the WiFi HaLow IoT Gateway AP7688-WHM located at the access point. This integration enables healthcare professionals to leverage high-speed data transmission, facilitating more precise medical diagnosis and treatment. Medical personnel can swiftly receive patient information, enabling quicker and more accurate medical decisions. Simultaneously, they can control the environmental conditions of each patient room, such as temperature and lighting adjustments, thereby enhancing the overall efficiency of the medical team.
These application scenarios underscore the advantages of Wi-Fi HaLow technology in the healthcare industry, enabling stable and efficient connections that bring about smarter and more user-friendly healthcare solutions.
