Paper Abstract

A joint project by Shands Hospital, the College of Medicine at the University of Florida, and the Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) has produced the design and partial completion of a comprehensive Metropolitan Area Network (MAN). The purpose of this MAN is to supply an integrated medical information network to a number of remote clinical sites both existing and planned. The joint cooperation with GRU will allow the replacement of the current power distribution intercommunications with reliable high speed optical paths.
