Based in suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin, nonprofit Wheaton Franciscan Healthcare (WFH) is one of the largest healthcare providers in the Midwestern United States. The challenge was to replace a dated 802.11b Cisco-based network with newer Wi-Fi technology, to deploy a system-wide wireless LAN to meet WFH's requirements for mobility, security, manageability, and growth, etc. WFH deployed phased deployment of Trapeze Smart Mobile wireless LAN across 100 facilities in three states, approximately 2,000 Mobility Point access points in total, two to eight Mobility Exchange WLAN controllers per site, depending on size, etc.
