Gigabit wireless for healthcare applications Secure (HIPAA-compliant) campus connectivity, off-site medical office & lab network access, real-time imaging application connectivity, redundant fiber overlay and disaster recovery.


Medical applications are among the most demanding in terms of network capacity, real-time performance, mission-critical reliability, and data security. Fiber optic cabling is the primary technology of choice to provide these requirements, however it is often difficult or costly to connect fiber to buildings across city streets or beyond the main campus. BridgeWave 60 GHz and 80 GHz links are the natural choices to provide fiber equivalent performance together with fiber equivalent security. Applications such as electronic patient records and high-resolution medical imaging are well-supported with full GigE bandwidth and ultra-low latency performance. BridgeWave links have very narrow beamwidths that form "spatial pipes" between the ends, providing data security that is superior to inter-building fiber cabling. The physical security provided by BridgeWave links make them a clear choice for implementing HIPAA-compliant networks.

BridgeWave Value Proposition

BridgeWave 60 GHz and 80 GHz links offer full-GigE LAN performance for HIPAA-compliant networks at the price of lower-frequency "Wi-Fi based" links that offer less than a tenth of the performance and lack the "spatial pipe" security benefits. BridgeWave links provide a fast-to-deploy, flexible alternative to costly inter-building fiber installations. Alternatively, they can provide a cost-effective 100% spatially diverse redundant path for mission-critical fiber connections.
