Medical Imaging Transmission
Medical images, such as those generated by Teleradiology equipment,
have large file sizes due to high resolution. Rapid transmission
between hospitals and medical centers requires high availability,
high bandwidth telecommunication services. For smaller offices
or infrequent use, a T1 data line might easily suffice. For medium
and larger facilities, DS3 or Ethernet fiber optic carriers are
What is Ethernet over Copper
Ethernet over Copper, or EoC, uses copper transmission lines rather
that fiber optics. T1 lines are most often used to transport mid-band
Ethernet signals in the 1 to 10 Mbps bandwidth range when provisioning
fiber optic lines is too expensive.
What does flooding mean?
Flooding is a Ethernet process whereby switches that do not know
the destination for data packets they receive send that data to
all ports and wait for a reply to discover the actual address.
What is a Service Level Agreement?
An SLA or Service Level Agreement is often part of the contract
between a business and telecom carrier for line services such
as carrier Ethernet.The SLA spells out the expected availability
of the line service and what penalties the carrier is liable for
if the line doesn't perform as stated.
What is Ethernet over Fiber?
Ethernet over Fiber or EoF means transporting Ethernet protocol
signals over metro distance or long haul circuits, using IP protocol
networks. Your interface is a standard Ethernet jack from the
carrier supplied premesis equipment.
