How WiFi RTLS Systems Work

Wi-Fi-based Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) utilize both existing and supplementary Wi-Fi infrastructure to identify and monitor the whereabouts of assets or individuals. Such systems are particularly advantageous for expansive healthcare facilities, thanks to their scalability and the ability to integrate with current network equipment. However, to effectively incorporate RTLS functionalities, the existing Wi-Fi network must possess the necessary capacity to support the additional load from the RTLS systems.
