How the information transmits within the hospital and externally are: -    The Network is segmented into two segments. One segment is administrative functions, and the other is clinical functions. -    All nodes attached to the administrative function segment is physically connected by CAT 6 cable and transmitting 1000 Base T. -    All nodes attached to the clinical function segment is physically connected by single mode fiber cable and transmitting 1000 Base F. -    The two network segments are connected by a network bridge. -    Workstations on the administrative function segment use a DHCP Server to obtain IP address. The network black/white and color laser printers are also DHCP but a static IP is set on the DHCP Server using their hardware MAC address. -    Nodes on the clinical function segment IP addresses are static IP’s. -    The DHCP service is run on the Exchange Server housed in the IT data center. -    DNS, for local name resolution, is also hosted on this server. -    If DNS cannot be resolved locally, it is forwarded to the gateway. -    All workstation nodes are joined to a domain.

-    User account management in the domain is handled by Active Directory. -    Outbound data is relayed through a proxy (internet...
