Telecommunications Running header TELECOMMUNICATIONS OF OSF Telecommunications design at OSF Michelle L Walker University of Phoenix NTC 360 Stephen Omogbehin February 4 2007 Telecommunications 2 Telecommunications at OSF According to Wikipedia 2007 Telecommunication is the transmission of signals over a distance for the purpose of communication par 1 Many organizations rely on differing telecommunications systems to deliver voice and data services to other corporate locations customers and the general public Telecommunications includes the transmission of voice video and Internet communications services The different types of networks implemented include voice communications telephones both analog and digital radio and television and computer networks Many organizations rely on both wired and wireless telecommunications to satisfy their corporate needs Wired telecommunications mainly relies on copperbased cabling to deliver voice and other transmissions however many companies have opted to utilize fiber optic cabling to increase the bandwidth on their inherent networks Saint Francis Medical Center utilizes many different types of telecommunications systems The types of telecommunications systems that I utilize in my work environment include computer networks digital telephone lines and wireless communications as cellular phones and wireless laptop connections Saint Francis Medical Center relies on digital telephone networks in the transmission of voice calls Most of the lines are wired especially at the main hospital and the surrounding medical buildings with some wireless carriers providing cellular communications between hospital entities The centralization of the network includes a server and telecommunications support team that add additional users to the system and move existing users to different locations AudiX is used in providing voicemail caller ID services and other services to phone users Most of the telephones on the desks are often Avaya or Lucent Technologies telephones Telecommunications 3 and are digital lines When a call is placed to another person in the network the receiving telephone will display the caller name and extension number If the person is not available or is on another line Audix will provide voicemail for the caller to leave a message for the unavailable user I am a little hesitant on proceeding further on the types of telecommunications systems that Saint Francis Medical Center utilizes because I am relatively new as an employee and do not have exposure to the different types of systems used by the Medical Center I work at the call center for the support of the various networks and telecommunications equipment utilized at Saint Francis and the other five hospitals within its network of hospitals Recently end users at Saint Anthony s Medical Center in Rockford IL experienced difficulty maintaining connectivity to the Wireless MAN that was established to address issues with laptop users at the facility Other issues that exist with telecommunications equipment includes dropped incoming calls network connectivity issues especially at the Rockford IL and Peoria IL locations and data transmission issues Doctors offices and other satellite locations often use dialup networks and DSL lines to connect to the OSF network DSL is defined as a technology that uses advanced modulation technologies on existing telecommunications networks for high speed network between a subscriber and a telco and that has communication speeds up to 55 Mbps Palmer and Sinclair 2003 p 331 More often than not however satellite offices are not directly affiliated with the OSF network and use dialup and analog for their telecommunications needs At the main facilities OSF implements an assortment of digitalized equipment such as computers digital telephones and switching to allow high data and voice transfer speeds The combination of all the local Medical Centers which reside in Peoria IL Rockford IL Telecommunications 4 Bloomington IL Pontiac IL Galesburg IL and Escinaba MI forms a Wide Area Network or WAN OSF uses SBC ATampT and Verizon in the transmission of both voice communications and data transfers between the various sites In addition the various sites utilize health information systems to enter patient data Which is housed on a centralized server to protect both client privacy and to assist health care providers in providing toplevel service to their patients OSF provides multiple telecommunications systems that include voice communications data transfers Wireless and Wired equipment and technology and computers in the quest to provide toplevel service to OSF customers These customers receive quality service because telecommunications systems provide patient data to every level of care required at the facility from the admissions tech to the doctors every level of the hospital is supported by the various telecommunications equipment implemented Telecommunications 5 References Palmer M amp Sinclair RB 2003 Guide to Designing and Implementing Local and Wide Area Networks 2nd Ed Retrieved from the University of Phoenix Week One
