EtherWAN Helps to Structure IP Surveillance Backbone at Hospital

Internet Data Centers



A major hospital in central Taiwan houses 1,500 beds and 3,000 employees. It is able to take care of 6,000 outpatients, 130 inpatients and 180 patients in the emergency room daily. As a public medical center, it provides safe, high-quality medical services with advanced facilities and training programs as well as outstanding research and development programs.



The hospital consisted of 6 major multi-level buildings where analog-based cameras were installed, and the surveillance systems took places on their own. The client wanted to turn them into fully digital with centralized archiving.



First, 8-core fiber cables are installed to connect the buildings to each other. Among the buildings, fiber-to-fiber connections are established by EtherWAN's commercial-grade PoE switches. A total of 49 units of them are connected with more than 460 PoE cameras on site.

The PoE cameras are installed in each building, powered by CAT6 cables. In the main control rooms, 2 units of EtherWAN's EX25611 managed Ethernet switches, equipped with Gigabit data ports and 10G uplink ports, are deployed to connect the CMS servers and NVRs for video storage and monitoring. A simplified network structure is shown below:

The overall surveillance result is good. The live actions are captured, recorded, and transmitted back to the NVRs and control rooms smoothly. EtherWAN has provided the client fast product inquiry, network design suggestion, and technical support service, together bringing the customers great cost/ performance ratio and satisfying quality.
