2.4 GHz IntelliVue Telemetry System with Smart-hopping technology —

A solution for Worldwide customers

Philips IntelliVue Telemetry System with advanced smart-hopping technology (2.4 GHz) offers surveillance of ambulatory cardiac patients, maintaining seamless connections between the IntelliVue Information Center and telemetry devices.

Access points give you considerable flexibility in setting up your system. The robust clinical network evolves with you to support your wired and wireless patient data flow.

Smart-hopping technology

With smart-hopping, the transceiver will change frequencies only to dodge interference or when it finds a stronger signal. Smart-hopping technology also manages bandwidth usage so efficiently that the IntelliVue Telemetry System is highly scalable, with capacity to support up to 1,028 transceivers or wireless bedside monitors.

Common wireless infrastructure

The Philips wireless infrastructure supports wireless bedside monitoring and telemetry, giving hospitals the benefit of a shared infrastructure that protects sensitive patient monitoring transmissions from enterprise network traffic. The IntelliVue Clinical Network can maintain a controlled connection with the hospital LAN so that lab results or PACS images can be delivered to the bedside monitor or central station without disrupting the flow of physiologic data or alarms.


Wireless telemetry as a parameter (WTAAP) expands monitoring capabilities to provide untethered in-room access to ECG/SpO2 data in near-real time. Wirelessly connect the transceiver to the IntelliVue MP5, MP5T, MMS X2, or MP2 to view patient data along with other parameters.

Device location

Hospitals typically lose 10-20% of their telemetry devices each year, and the ripple effect of down beds extends to the ICU, OR, and ED. Device location helps hospitals contain equipment costs and prevent interruptions to care.

Other key features of Philips telemetry include:

  • Compact, lightweight transceiversPhilips telemetriás egység
  • Cellular WMTS infrastructure for two-way communication between transceivers and the IntelliVue Information Center
  • Auto-resume of monitoring when a device comes back into network range
  • 2 V-leads with 6-wire ECG for improved tachycardia assessment
  • Audible feedback from transceiver on SpO2 spot checks, patient out of range
  • Coexists with UHF Philips Telemetry System and 802.11 networks in the same space
