Abstract: Wireless networking is currently being deployed for various applications. However, the application of wireless networking in healthcare remains a challenge mainly because of security and reliability concerns. This paper presents experimental results of performance analysis of a wireless network for healthcare application in the City of Blantyre. The results show that the use of wireless networking in healthcare application will be limited by packet loss, delay and jitter when the number of hops involved in the transmission of information is large. Nevertheless, deployment of wireless networking for healthcare applications is viable when the number of hops a packet has to transverse is small.
