FIPS 140-2 defines the U.S. federal government standard for modules that protect sensitive but unclassified information through cryptography, or encryption and decryption. Even though FIPS 140-2 is for the federal government, many enterprises and other non-governmental organizations are interested in FIPS 140-2 because it is a robust and well-defined standard for security. Given the many threats to Wi-Fi® security that exist, requiring FIPS 140-2 validation for Wi-Fi client devices may not be a bad idea.
While CCX has been an overwhelming success in the laptop world, few medical devices carry the Cisco Compatible seal. Medical devices that incorporate Wi-Fi radios from Laird have passed all tests for CCX V4 and earned the Cisco Compatible seal. That seal gives OEMs confidence that the devices interoperate with Cisco infrastructures and can take advantage of Cisco innovations for enhanced security, mobility, QoS, and network management.
Microwave components like antennas, filters, amplifiers and mixers are building blocks which are utilized in many existing defense weapons and Department of Defense (DoD) systems. While high-tech research and development programs for the DoD may have slowed of late, these components are continuing to find new life as the military re-tools its missions and objectives to better fight the “war on terror.” Emerging applications in communications, monitoring and screening will all be built on the backs of microwave components. For the antenna, in particular, that demand poses a number of significant challenges.
As the traditional 2.4 GHz operating band for IEEE 802.11-compliant Wi-Fi wireless local area networking becomes more crowded, network administrators increasingly look to the less crowded 5 GHz operating band to improve or maintain network performance and reliability. This is especially necessary in industrial Wi-Fi deployments which present greater operational challenges and more stringent requirements than residential and commercial Wi-Fi networks.
Hospitals present challenges to reliable Wi-Fi connectivity and many medical device applications require secure and persistent network connections.
To ensure reliable functionality, a Wi-Fi radio that is embedded in a medical device must be tested thoroughly. But where, and how?
