Medical Imaging Transmission Bandwidth
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 or bonded T1 lines might suffice. For medium and larger facilities, DS3, Fast Ethernet and OCx fiber optic services are recommended.

Applications Demanding DS3 Bandwidth
DS3 transport is often used for real time video transport, high resolution images, large engineering files, and data backups to remote data centers. You can get this bandwidth through fiber optic delivery or over copper coaxial lines, called T3 lines.
