To be efficient, the network model plays an essential role. More importantly, the protocol implement into the network are crucial. While there are multiple other protocols necessary to the good functioning of the company; HTTPS, SFTP, and DICOM are the primary ones. .
Running Head: HEALTHCARE NETWORK INFRASTRUCURE 13 Week 3: Network Traffic Analysis and Recommendations Different factors need to be taken into perspective analyzing the network traffic flow of center for Vein Treatment. The different types of data need to be estimated individually in to come up with an average bandwidth necessary for the good functioning of the network during its peak traffic flow as well as during its normal data flow traffic. Data flow such as emails, graphics files, and electronic health records are to be analyzed to make the proper network bandwidth estimates, determines peak traffic and level, identify issues to prevent traffic congestions, and make recommendations. Email and SharePoint Bandwidth Estimation For emailing purposes, Center for Vein Treatment utilizes a cloud-based system though outlook. This cloud system provides provide more than emailing assistance, but it also includes document sharing supports, scheduling, and storage features as one package name SharePoint. Outlook and SharePoint are both developed by Microsoft. The tables below list the requirement established by Microsoft Online Office 365 Network to estimate bandwidth for emailing. document sharing, and files storing purposes. The following tables present the message and bandwidth usage for light, medium, heavy and very heavy e-mail traffic. These data will later be used to estimate network traffic and the

In reference to these tables, it is important to mention that most of the communication between the personals of the company is done on site. Only a minimal amount of personals use email messing(Outlook) and data sharing and storing (Sharepoint) heavily in the company. Thus, the message bandwidth usages of the company would fall into the light category for normal data traffic and heavy category for peak data traffic. For a total of 250 users on a 12 hours shift per day basis, the necessary bandwidth for emailing purposes would be the following:
Running Head: HEALTHCARE NETWORK INFRASTRUCURE 15 (250 light users × (1,300 KB/user ÷ day)) ÷ (12 hr/day × 3600 sec/hr) = 7.5KB/sec. For a peak traffic, the necessary bandwidth would be as follow: (250 medium users × (5,200 KB/user ÷ day)) ÷ (12 hr/day × 3600 sec/hr) = 30.9KB/sec. In regard to SharePoint, it takes 100 KB for an average interaction (page load), and an average user would generate approximatively 36 interactions (page loads) per hour. It is also said 10 percent of SharePoint will be active at the same time. The network bits per second for an average user would be the following: (100,000 bytes/load × 8 bits/byte × 36 loads/hr) ÷ 3600 seconds/hr = 8000 bits per second.
