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
Carrier Ethernet is Available
Carrier Ethernet Services are already available in major metropolitan
areas from competitive carriers such as XO Communications. You
can order 10 Mbps Ethernet, 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet or Gigabit
Ethernet connections to match your current network bandwidth.
What is PBT?
PBT stands for Provider Backbone Transport. It's an adaption of
Ethernet to extend Layer-2 switching into the WAN transport network.
PBT was pioneered by Nortel and will be standardized by the IEEE
What is QoS and how do you
QoS means Quality of Service. Most often you hear about QoS when
referring to converged networks that transport both packet voice
and data. QoS mechanisms may include prioritizing voice packets
over data because voice is much more affected by latency and jitter.
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.
