Today, everything in a hospital is interconnected. “These are no longer ‘simple’ electricity installation works”, explains Rudy Renard, Jules Bordet project manager at EQUANS. “The power has moved from the electricity network to the data network – this is the greatest development of the last 15 years.”
To enable the staff to be in permanent contact at the four corners of the hospital, we have developed an efficient communication system in close collaboration with the TPF design office. Each bedroom is equipped with a ‘Bedside’ terminal, a sort of board computer that provides access to the Internet, digital radio or TV, as well as the telephone (via the SIP protocol). Sound, videophone and intercom systems also offer a comfortable work environment to all the staff.
