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.
Is Ethernet a Full or Half
The original Ethernet implementation was based on avoiding collisions
on packets all sharing the same network line. Small networks using
hubs are half-duplex. Switched Ethernet networks are full duplex
because the layer 2 switches prevent packet collisions.
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
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.
