Teleradiology Network Topology

Getting started with telerad has teething issues.  I’ve changed my network topology to see if I can maximize throughput.  The effects of the topology change are modest.  Images below:

 

Original topology with cable modem -> router -> gigabit switch -> workstation

Modified topology:  cable modem (moved as close to source as possible) -> router -> gigabit switch -> workstation

Modified topology:  cable modem (moved as close to source as possible) -> router -> workstation

 

Impression: No real speed change, modest drop in latency with elimination of 1 hop.

 

Impression: The local environment has little effect on speed of image transfer.  Upgrading the connection and modem however does have a large effect. No duh!
