Paper Abstract

This paper explains the theory and operation of local area networks which employ broadband coaxial cable communication technology. Such networks combine data, voice and T.V. communications on a single one-half inch diameter coaxial cable. The 300 Megahertz (MHZ) bandwidth of the network also provides multiple high speed (multi-million bit per second) data channels required for medical image processing applications. The theory is then applied to the development of the total facility (hospital complex) Information Network providing services which include security, facilities management, data processing, and emergency paging as well as medical image data transmissions.
