Initially Targeted for Hospital Campuses and Local Governments, I-LAND Offers The Speed of In-House Messaging with the Broad Coverage of Traditional Paging Networks
Initially targeted for larger hospital facilities and local governments, I-LAND eliminates the need for hospitals to use separate wireless networks, one for time-critical in-house messaging, such as code messages, and another for paging applications where broad coverage is more important. The I-LAND system is compliant with HIPAA regulations that ensure patient privacy.
Hospitals and local governments require fast throughput for much of their electronic communication so they can communicate quickly to first responders and other emergency personnel in cases of natural disasters, public safety issues and events affecting the public infrastructure.

Moreover, our interconnected network ensures that healthcare and public safety personnel can use their devices whenever they travel. Plus, unlike in-house paging systems of the past,” he added, “there is no longer a need to issue two devices for personnel who need to be contacted while away from their primary work facility.”
Saine pointed out that I-LAND will require minimal on-premise equipment
for customers. “The input, processing and output control infrastructure
is actually located at our operations center in
