Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children has invested in a wireless network from 3Com to allow children to access the internet and lessons from the hospital's school from their beds.
The children's hospital has complemented an existing Cat 5 cable network with two wireless local area network access points and six wireless PC cards to allow pupils to continue their education, either in the main schoolroom or in the Mildred Creek Unit, for the duration of their recovery period.
"By using a wireless network, pupils who for mobility reasons are not able to get close to one of the hard wired computers in the schoolroom can now access the full resources of the internet and the school network from their beds or wheelchairs," explained John Sosna, information communications technology coordinator at Great Ormond Street Hospital school.
The hospital's school teaches children from the ages of five to 18+ across all National Curriculum subjects areas, including PE.
"We could not have done this using a wired network," Sosna added.
Great Ormond Street Hospital has around 350 beds and offers the widest range of expert child medical care available under one roof in the UK.
