5G Radio Bug Discovered by 7SIGNAL Hospital Customer

7SIGNAL, an enterprise cloud Wi-Fi Performance Management company, has announced that its SaaS-based SapphireEye 2100 and MobileEye products have discovered a bug in Cisco Aironet 3500 and 3700 Series access points. The bug was discovered at a Connected Hospital which is part of a major not-for-profit health plan in the US.

The access point issue was first discovered outside of an operating room at a campus in California where connectivity with wireless medical devices had been poor before deploying 7SIGNAL. After the issue was discovered, Cisco quickly released a patch resolving the issue. As demand grows for these wireless medical devices and the growth within the Healthcare Internet of Things (IoT) market continues, the monitoring like this becomes critical to ensuring life-saving devices stay connected.

“Your hospital is going to triple its IoT and Wi-Fi connected devices over the next 4 years. Are you ready? If you are not managing your critical Wi-Fi proactively today, it is going to be a monumental task to scale your environment to support the Wi-Fi needs of Connected Hospitals over the next 4 years,” said Don Cook, CMO, 7SIGNAL.
