Network Design
This manual does not describe the design and implementation of Clinical Network systems in
detail because each clinical environment requires careful analysis by an experienced network
designer. Philips Service Providers are specially trained to assist customers in reviewing their
clinical requirements and designing a Clinical Network system that meets those requirements
and will be supported by Philips Medical Systems.
The general concepts and capabilities of Network components and systems given here should
only be used as a reference for understanding the final design. Two examples are provided to
illustrate the design process.
Consult a Philips Service Provider for Clinical Network system design advice.
Review the locations of the network devices and select the repeaters, media translators, cable
types and lengths required to interconnect them. (See Network Connections on page 4-45).
Table 3-1 summarizes the Clinical Network devices and the settings required for connection.
Start with device and switch selection, and follow across to determine what speed and duplex
settings are needed to make the connection. Then, determine which connection type is
appropriate. Table 3-2 shows the current hardware and the port settings they are capable of
The network connections for these devices are described in detail in Network
Connections on page 4-45.
