Powertec’s expert installer, Remote Networks, developed a tailored solution for Hutt Hospital’s emergency department. CEL-FI QUATRA was selected for several reasons; its installation efficiencies and its scalability. This product allows for longer cable runs, without sacrificing connection strength. The option of adding additional units in the future is also a bonus for a hospital of this size.
To capture the signal from the nearby Vodafone and Spark cellular towers, two Blackhawk XPOL MIMO antennas were installed on the roof of the hospital. Coaxial cable was used to connect the external antennas to each CEL-FI QUATRA Network Unit and then through to the Coverage Units. From here the signal is dispersed to all cellular devices.
Additional caballing was run through to the EOC/ control centre to allow additional units to be added should it be required in the future. Remote Networks were able to deliver an industry-leading solution in one day, which reduced disruption to emergency staff and hospital admin team members.
