tw telecom completes $3.2m telecommunications installation for teleradiology services provider

Tw Telecom : 22 August, 2008  (Company News)
tw telecom has successfully completed a $3.2 million, multi-year installation of telecommunications solutions for Virtual Radiologic, a leading national provider of teleradiology services based in Minneapolis, USA.
'Our ability to continually exceed our target of a 30-minute turnaround window to our rapidly expanding client base is critical,' said David Lease, director of infrastructure services, Virtual Radiologic. 'tw telecom took the time to understand our service objectives and business growth plans, and to provide us with the solutions we needed. Virtual Radiologic's mission to provide both critical emergency and routine human health services via teleradiology drives all of our technology decisions.'

tw telecom is delivering a 1 Gbps network transmission capacity between Virtual Radiologic's data centres, a 1 Gbps Native LAN solution for the transmission of radiological data from its clients, as well as a 1 Gbps connection for remote administration purposes at the company's Minneapolis headquarters. Additionally, Virtual Radiologic deployed two separate 100 Mbps Ethernet Internet Services (EIS) circuits and metro Ethernet services to support its business activities. tw telecom also supports the company's fax-intensive services with the installation of PRI voice circuits, which is critical, as the company transmits more than 15,000 radiological reports via fax in each 24 hour period, to attending physicians.

'They laid out a road map that no one else did,' said Lease. 'We had established a set of requirements for this project and tw telecom ended up at the top of the list. Their network is both functional and cost-effective.' As further evidence, tw telecom has been tapped to help Virtual Radiologic move to its new headquarters in early 2009.

Virtual Radiologic's data-intensive business and strict compliance requirements for HIPAA, Sarbanes/Oxley and the Joint Hospital Commission require the company to maintain its records and preserve operations through its data center operations. To aid in protecting and preserving this data, Virtual Radiologic is utilising 1,000 square feet of collocation space and a specially designed 200 square foot remote BCDR operation office at tw telecom's facility to support this operations in the event of a disaster or other outage.
