Charité Hospitals Securely Connects Medical Devices Using Silex Ethernet-to-Wi-Fi Bridges


Charité is one of the largest university hospitals in Europe, extending over four campuses with more than 100
different departments and institutes, making a total of 17 different Charité Centers.

Our Ethernet-to-Wi-Fi bridges have been used in these large hospitals, which employ the 802.1X EAP-TLS/EAP-TTLS authentication for their enterprise network. 

Charité's team has adopted four generations of the Silex’s bridges to update the Wi-Fi security and performance since their first deployment of our SX-BR-4600WAN. We support Charite’s IT team with both updated hardware and updated product firmware when security requirements change.

The latest solution for Charité is the BR-500AC, which is the 802.11ac wave2 Wi-Fi bridge supporting high data throughput and a highly secure Wi-Fi link with WAP3-Enterprise with TLS1.2. The BR-500AC is also qualified by a couple of medical device manufacturers as their wireless connectivity solution for an EKG machine, an ultrasound system, a visual data recording system, and so on.
