The Enterprise Wireless Alliance (EWA) announced today the launch of its MBAN website that will enable health care facilities to formally register and seek concurrence for the deployment of Medical Body Area Networks (MBAN) in the 2360-2390 MHz band.

MBAN will be used for wireless patient monitoring in hospitals and health care facilities to transmit patient health data over a short range at a very low power level. The devices are range-restricted to indoor use at health care facilities. MBAN operations are on a secondary, non-interference basis with existing Aeronautical Mobile Telemetry (AMT) operations. As the FCC certified coordinator, EWA will ensure that use of the MBAN devices does not cause interference to AMT operations through a line of sight calculation and collaboration with Aerospace and Flight Test Radio Coordinating Council® (AFTRCC), the FCC designated AMT coordinator, for their certification and final approval.
