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 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 PoE?
PoE means power over the Ethernet. It is a way to provide a DC
power supply over network lines to energize security cameras,
VoIP telephones, badge readers, wireless access points and other
devices that might not have an AC outlet nearby.
What is the Technical Advantage
of Carrier Ethernet
Carrier Ethernet essentially extends you Local Area Network using
the same Ethernet switched protocol that you are currently familiar
with. You can have multiple locations hundreds or thousands of
miles apart appear to be on the same company LAN.
