Guest access is often the first application implemented when deploying a WLAN. There are many benefits to guest access ranging from creating a positive impression about the organization to providing reliable, high performance internet access without hassle. A hospital demands an effective wireless network that can support a wide variety of devices and users, while still keeping the wireless network secure.
Separate and Segregate Internal Traffic
One of the most important benefits of a Hospital Guest Network is that the guest network will separate and segregate internal and guest traffic. This provides iron-clad security to the hospital wireless network. This helps control guest access over the wired and wireless network.
Some organizations are content to provide open Internet access to anyone in range, however, this is very risky. Especially for a hospital wireless network that carries an increasing amount of private electronic data, large fines can be accrued for not having proper wireless network safety in place. A hospital guest network will allow easy access to the wireless network for guests without causing a security issue with the main networks. Guest devices can be easily connected to the public WiFi or other wireless through a Captive Portal.
Secure Guest Access provides historical data that accounts for who used the network, when they used it and how it was used. Track specific user accounts and filter out unwanted activity.
