Wireless Case Study: Baylor Scott & White Health

When Wireless Matters Most

The largest not-for-profit healthcare system in Texas improves the performance of its wireless network with management tools from Cisco.


To keep its clinical operations running smoothly, Baylor Scott & White needed to be able to:

  • Provide reliable Wi-Fi for its staff, patients, and 18,000 client devices
  • Proactively troubleshoot its large wireless network
  • Quickly remediate any connectivity issues


Cisco provided an enterprise-class Wi-Fi infrastructure and centralized management tools for trouble-free connectivity. The healthcare system:


  • Simplified management: Less time is required for network management and device rollouts
  • Proactive troubleshooting: Issues can be resolved before they affect patient safety
  • Faster integration: Acquired hospitals can be brought into a standardized Wi-Fi infrastructure
Above all, we need to make sure wireless medical devices can communicate, or quality of care could be at stake.
