Chapter 2B Senior Living Facilities.
Now, most people are going to think to themselves that there’s a lot of similarity between the MDU application and the senior living application. And you would be correct. But there are enough differences that the problem that’s being solved with the WaveTunnel solution for the senior living people and facilities is even more dire and more important than just the MDU.
The senior living value proposition for the Airvine WaveTunnel system includes all the drivers that we talked about from the multi family. Existing older cabling running out of steam, upgrades can be disruptive to tenants, new cables, costly growth of IoT, managed Wi-Fi.
All those drivers that we talked about in the previous chapter exist in this chapter in this use case as well, with some critical additions. Many residents in senior living facilities are not mobile. Many have breathing or health issues where they’re connected to an oxygen machine or they have other medical devices that are, you know in their rooms that need electricity all the time.
Construction over weeks, with the dust and and dirt and all the turmoil, weeks or months can become a huge issue and extremely disruptive to the elderly population. With the Airvine WaveTunnel solution we’re going to show you how you can very quickly, with minimal disruption, do a multi floor building layout.
This is an actual project where WaveTunnel is being deployed. Most of the tenants in this facility are of low income. Many are handicapped, or otherwise limited as we mentioned previously, and it is been determined by the managing property owner for this facility that construction is not allowed.
There’s a total of four floors to be covered, and you can see with the WaveTunnel system there are 4 blue dots. Each of those is a WaveTunnel node connected to one backbone down the hallway of this facility. This can be done. Each floor could be done in less than a day, and with the WaveTunnel nodes, where they’re deployed, you can plug in your cameras for security and to make sure that there’s no issues.
You can plug in your fault detection network for the WaveTunnel nodes. And of course, you can plug in the latest Wi-Fi technology to ensure that the elderly have access to the streaming that many of them use on a daily basis.
