The Information Superhighway
Stands Still at Rush Hour

Communications in the healthcare workplace are congested. Approximately seven networked devices per person are brought inside your facility – cellphones, iPads, laptops, and wearables. Within three years, this average will increase to thirteen devices per person, and more than half will be wireless. They’re all competing with your own mission-critical devices – infusion pumps, carts, scanners, and more.

Never fear. OnGo is the healthcare communications platform for the future. Designed to provide world-class communications for overcrowded systems, OnGo returns positive outcomes to patient care and lends a competitive advantage in clinician satisfaction and critical care communications.

OnGo Boldly Delivers Where Others Cannot

The truth is simple: OnGo is superior to Wi-Fi. Designed from the ground up to vastly improve network security, it provides resilient encryption and localized authentication. But that is only the beginning. Enjoy greatly expanded coverage with ranges far outside the limited reach of Wi-Fi with fewer enabling devices, both indoors and outdoors. Carrier-grade reliability allows for predictable rates and ultra-stable performance without the degrading system performance of over-taxed Wi-Fi. Connectivity is essential and OnGo accepts as many as one thousand percent more connections than existing Wi-Fi networks – all over a single network which empowers IoT technology such as PTT (push-to-talk), practically limitless broadband access, video streaming, facility control, and physical security.



Imagine the possibilities: up to eight hundred connections on a single cell and tens of thousands on a full antenna. Beyond that, utilize OnGo’s superior range from each access point with dramatic improvements in mobility support and high-grade spectral efficiency. Large amounts of traffic are no longer a concern.


Vastly Improved

Enjoy as much as one hundred times your current coverage at equivalent power levels. OnGo penetrates more than three times as many physical barriers at ranges as great as thirty kilometers with fewer antennas. Give users wireless access in distant and obstructed areas where they had none and thought it impossible to get access.



Aside from predictable carrier rates and proven reliability, OnGo performance and capacity is unparalleled. SAS (Spectrum Access System) technology reduces interference and improves throughput, allowing 25x your current user capacity for service.


Network Security

End-to-end SIM authentication and encryption featuring localized control and maintenance of subscribers over a bulletproof architecture designed to keep data local by way of the synergy between physically installed SIM cards and the dedicated network.


IoT and OnGo –
The Perfect Match

IoT requires considerable bandwidth. OnGo interfaces perfectly with video surveillance, building automation, PTT, security functions, voice operations, facility sensors, and more. Globalized video streaming, such as wayfinding and video walls, also benefit from massive bandwidth. If devices are communicating with a local gateway, OnGo is the superior solution.

Black Box Offers OnGo Test Drives for Every Application

The OnGo Test Drive is simple. First, join the Black Box Mobility Workshop. You’ll receive an overview of 5G and OnGo where you’ll learn how each system functions, why it matters, and how your facility can benefit from leading-edge technology. After reviewing test cases, we’ll partner with you in a strategy session. Together, we’ll assess the applications, devices and networks operating in your facility. We’re committed to honest and forthright evaluations, so you can be certain that OnGo is the right technology for your environment and needs.

Demos: Experience the Power of OnGo


Outdoor Connectivity

Smoothly transition between buildings and areas, enjoying full continuity of workflow without dropouts. Enable efficient triaging and onboarding outside typically congested intake areas.


Increase Efficiency

Modern healthcare relies on collaboration and data security. Transmit files of any size to any department at any time securely and without regard for congested network speeds.


Critical Communication on Dedicated Networks

Ensure optimum performance on your network. Easily configurable network profiles provide absolute flexibility and the ability to easily prioritize network access. Allocate back-office operations to OnGo, while allowing public communications to remain on Wi-Fi.


Voice Over OnGo

‘Over the Top’ voice apps (Voalte, PatientKeeper, Epic, PatientSafe and others) reside perfectly on your OnGo system. Move your most demanding apps (voice) away from your Wi-Fi network allowing your voice apps to benefit from dedicated bandwidth and impressive sound quality while Wi-Fi is free to function elsewhere.


EHR Over OnGo

Rely on OnGo to move EHR data instantly and securely between authorized users. Wi-Fi creates capacity and security concerns. Move EHR access to OnGo to improve workflows and to protect sensitive and critical patient information.
