Corning Showcases Wireless Healthcare Solutions at HIMSS 2013
HICKORY, NC -- (Marketwire) -- 03/05/13 -- Corning MobileAccess,
part of Corning Incorporated's (NYSE: GLW) Telecommunications
segment, is showcasing its distributed antenna systems (DAS)
solutions for the healthcare industry at HIMSS 2013, March 3-7, at
the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.
Corning MobileAccess also announced that Johns Hopkins Hospital in
Baltimore is the latest healthcare facility to utilize Corning's
wireless technology, which is used by dozens of major healthcare
facilities in the United States. The MobileAccess2000 DAS was
deployed in the hospital's newest clinical building, a dual-tower
adult and pediatric care facility.
Installed by Gulf Coast Real Estate Consultants (GCREC), the Corning
solution supports wireless coverage across 1.6 million square feet of
space and 560 patient rooms.
"Wireless connectivity is being adopted by more and more healthcare
institutions. Now, rather than asking 'should we add wireless
communications services?' healthcare professionals are asking 'how
can we make our wireless communications services better?'" said Derek
Johnston, senior director, Market Analysis with Corning MobileAccess.
"Corning MobileAccess technologies enable hospitals to do this by
allowing for, and significantly improving, the usage of almost every
device, from wireless medical telemetry technologies to smartphones
The MobileAccess2000 provides multi-service, multi-operator wireless
coverage over a single broadband infrastructure. The wireless
solution improves indoor cellular reception for staff, patients and
visitors; helps ensure constant connectivity for emergency
communications; and provides fast, dependable access to patient data.
The MobileAccess2000 can be installed inside hospitals without
repeatedly opening up ceilings and walls, thereby minimizing
disruptions to staff and patients.
Also, the Corning MobileAccess2000 will be supporting the HIMSS 2013
wireless footprint inside the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
Corning's DAS was deployed in the convention center in preparation
for Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 3, bringing macro-network cellular
signals indoors to enhance wireless service.
gMobileAccess2000 will be featured at booth #5316 alongside
the company's other solutions. The Gulf Coast Real Estate and Corning
representatives will also be offering tours of the live Corning
MobileAccess DAS installed in the convention center. Those interested
in a live tour should visit the Corning booth at 11 a.m. on March
