Re: PAIX/industry specific exchange pts
Actually I got to sit with a company deploying this as a product, and I was impressed. Right now, it's all run over *gulp* dsl. But they are moving towards tunnels on the open internet.
My cousin actually does work in the field and when it's working, it's impressive. When there is a glitch such as a power failure (U can tell something isnt setup right if this affects their network) they have MIS issues and have to volkswagon it over to the main location.
On the one had it makes me nervous that it's not rock solid, on the other hand if it means a senior doctor has a shot at looking at me pics, ultrasound videos etc, before they do something, then Im happier. Somehow I think it's really used in some locations to cut back on expensive staff.
Still, not a need for an exchange pt. Perhaps a medical exchange point??? Perhaps that's the next thread? Goes against my philosophy of aggregation is the key to life.... But could there be medical or industry specific exchanges just like there are industry networks???

Is this sort of radiology data sent over private lines or the public internet? What are the bandwidth demands? Not a good reason for extensive local peering, but a very interesting application. - Dan On Mon, 18 Nov 2002, Stephen Sprunk wrote:
