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
How is PoE used for IP Phones?
PoE or Power over Ethernet is a standard that defines a way to
transmit electric power to network devices as well as information
packets. When PoE equipment is installed in equipment lockers,
an IP telephone gets its power from the network and does not need
a separate AC power supply.
Where does a VPN make sense?
A VPN or Virtual Private Network is a security technique to allow
public networks, like the Internet, to be used for secure private
data transmission. Since Internet access is almost universally
available, using VPN software to encrypt data into private tunnels
is more cost effective than building a fully meshed network to
connect many locations.
How does managed security work?
Companies that specialize in network security install VPNs and
managed firewalls that they remotely monitor from a network operations
center. A dedicated security team that specializes in knowing
what threats are out there, when they are coming for your network
and what to do to mitigate the threat provides the vigilance for
a multitude of clients.
What is Mid-Band Ethernet?
Mid-Band Ethernet is a WAN or Wide Area Network technology that
delivers 2 to 45 Mbps over existing copper pair wiring. This bandwidth
range falls neatly in between T1 lines at 1.5 Mbps and DS3 service,
usually provided over fiber optic carriers, at 45 Mbps. As a native
Ethernet delivery system, mid-band Ethernet offers an easy way
to extend the corporate network beyond the premises.
