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's the difference between
MAN and WAN?
MAN stands for Metropolitan Area Network. MANs are set up to provide
broadband network connections within a city or metropolitan network.
WAN means Wide Area Network, a term applied to any network outside
the control of the enterprise. A MAN is a limited case of WAN.
How does Spanning Tree Protocol
STP or Spanning Tree Protocol is a technique used by Ethernet
switches to ensure that there is one and only one physical path
from source to destination. This is done to prevent forwarding
Will Carriers "Light Buildings"?
Some will if their closest point of presence (POP) is within a
mile or so of your location. The farther away you are, the higher
the bandwidth commitment needs to be in order to justify the carrier's
