1 August 1990 ISDN: early experiments as a wide-area extension to LAN-based PACS
Author Affiliations +
An Integrated Services Data Network test configuration, developed in collaboration with SBC Technology Resources Inc., has been utilized to gain experience with both hardware and software interface isssues relevant to wide-area extensions of PACS. Example workstations capable of inquiry and display of radiological information have been interfaced to the ISDN trial network and tested. A DEGnet router was used to interface our Ethernet-based PACS to an ISDN network. Average throughput rates of approximately 60Kb/s for the lB (64Kb/s) channel and 120Kb/s for the 2B (l28Kb/s) channel were measured. Results were obtained for both embedded and external ISDN terminal adapters.
