Resources: Patton-Fuller Community Hospital Virtual Organization Prepare a 1,400- to 2,450-word paper including the following: o Identify how data is transmitted within the hospital and externally. o Identify and describe the OSI layers directly involved. o Relate this information to the OSI model.

The Organizational Structure

The Patton-Fuller Community Hospital is using a relatively high-end organizational structure to facilitate the goals of the Hospital. Being that this is a Virtual Organization meaning; An organization that is actually dispersed over a small to large geographical area. That uses Information Technology (IT) and Information Systems (IS) to appear as if in a single location. When in actuality they are across a vast area. Being that this Organization probably has many satellite offices like most large hospitals in urban areas like John’s Hopkins in Baltimore. They would also use Groupware and E-mail to facilitate the daily operations of the Hospital. Groupware can be broken into three different groups; communication tools, conference tools and collaborative management tools. Communication tools such as E-mail, Fax and V-mail, can be used to tell the staff of a Virtual meeting or a staff members birthday. Conference tools such as data, video and voice conferencing, instant messaging and chat rooms are used when there are meetings and announcement that nearly all must attend. Collaborative management tools such as calendars and project management tools are used to keep the organization running along smoothly.

With the Virtual Organization defined we will now examine how all of the above mentioned technology uses the OSI 7 Layer Model and how it is transmitted across the Wired and Wi-Fi Network of the Hospital. Lastly, I will attempt to relate how this technology uses the OSI 7 Layer Model to its fullest advantage.

How the Virtual Organization uses the OSI 7 Layer Model to conduct business as if in a single location

First let us take a look at the E-mail systems and how they use the OSI to communicate inside and outside of the Network. The Open Systems Interconnect model was developed by the International Organization for Standardization in 1984. It was initially created to allow for a standard form of communication for computer equipment coming from various companies. It is now the de facto standard that nearly all Computer and Data Networks are designed to, coming up in a close second is the CISCO Systems 3 Layer Model. The process of taking those pixel’s on the screen and sending them through the Network so that Dr. Phil can see his 12:00 PM appointment at the new time of 4:30 PM is a task indeed.

Layers 7 through 4 were designed to allow for end to end communication between a data source and its destination. Layers 3 through 1 deal with communication between devices within the Network or Internetwork as in the case here. Also, the OSI is split into Upper and Lower Layers. Layers 7 through 5 handle issues dealing with application and is implemented via software, E-mail in this case. Whether Outlook/Exchange, Mac Mail, Surge Mail, hMail Server or Zimbra. These applications run on differing platforms from UNIX to Windows yet the mail is able to make it through without a dependency on the operating system or a particular brand of hardware. Layers 4 through 1 allow for the data to be moved across the Network Cable Plant and the Wi-Fi Networks also. The Physical Layer and the Data Link Layer are generally implemented through both software and hardware. Each layer down that data travels down the OSI Model it receives a header and then it presented to the layer beneath it until it reaches the Physical Layer and the data packet is moved across the network. Since we are discussing E-mail and how it travels through the Network to both Local and Internet based destination addresses. It must be pointed out the E-mail Servers have a unique feature about them. They only make one Hop for whatever information that they are sending. Meaning, if Cindy the Nurse Practitioner sends Dr. West a patient report and he is in Miami and she is in Tallahassee. The E-mail Server will send the package to the E-mail server correlating to Dr. West E-mail address. This data is sent through the Physical Layer from end to end. Then data is passed up the OSI 7 Layer Model and the headers are stripped away and the information needed for it corresponding layer and then past up to the next layer up. Before I go any further, the layers of the OSI 7 Layer Model must be enumerated. They are as follows; the 7 the Application Layer. It is responsible for providing standardized services like file transfer or virtual terminal. Layer 6 the Presentation Layer has the task of making data universally understood. In other words masking it so that even if the destination is a Linux Server and the sender is a Windows Server, neither system has an issue understanding what was sent from the other system. This layer encrypts and decrypts data an also compresses it if needed. Layer 5 the Session Layer controls the users session from end to end as in the case of Instant Messaging (IM.) It also establishes and terminates communication between Hosts and send information to the layers above it as needed. Layer 4 the Transport Layer handles the delivery of messages within a Network. It provides reliable delivery of data packets (as in the case of Transmission Control Protocol or TCP) and it also provides connectionless delivery of packets (Internet Protocol or IP.) Layer 3 of the OSI 7 Layer Model, makes a determination as to how the date is to be sent from one device to the other. As in case of one E-mail Server to the other. It also determines the best route for data to be sent through, this function help to prevent Network Congestion. Or bottle necking which in a Taken ring Network could bring the entire ring down. Layer 2 of the OSI 7 Model is where the packets are framed for delivery across the wire. It is also detects collisions of the data that was sent and retransmits it if needed. Layer 1 of the OSI Model is where the connection between the hardware on the Network and the physical media meet. It defines if the Network is has electrical or optical characteristics.

How the Technology uses the OSI to its fullest potential

With the advent of Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone systems for instance have gone from the realm of the local Telecom Company. To the local or national Internet Service Provider (ISP.) With this advancement in communications, businesses are able to reduce or eliminate the need for the phone company. Except for trunk lines to the outside which nearly all companies have. Using VoIP, a traditional telephone call is passed through a Computer Network instead of a Telecom Network. In many cases this gives greater call clarity and faster connections. This technology has advanced to the point where iPhones and BlackBerries can make these types of calls from a local Star Buck shop and not use any of their air time or at any additional cost to the user. This means that in the case of the Hospital, the Nurses and Drs can use an IP phone while at work and never have to incur the cost of making a cellular call. When it comes to Faxing, this has also made the transition of going from a telecom only to the ISP’s review. You can now send a fax via E-mail, using the OSI 7 Layer model to its greatest potential. Making managing personal and patient information an easy proposition vs. the way of the past. V-mail is another great advancement forward, the staff of the Hospital are able to have their V-mail follow them no matter which location of the Organization the happen to be in that present day. These messages can now be delivered by email, audible text and MP3 or another type of audio file format that can be hears on the fly. The staff is no longer stuck to a desk and a certain phone extension to get their V-mail. These advancement make running a Virtual Organization much easier than the past where you sent out a call to every ones V-mail and you would hope that they heard it first thing in the AM and hope they would make it to the Staff Meeting.

All of this shows that the Hospital even though it may be across a very large area, even multiple states or countries as in the case of John’s Hopkins’s Organization. It can be ran as if it all is in one geographical location.

· An analysis of the network systems in use?

The Network in current use is a high end 1GB Network. That uses Cat 6 and single Mode Fiber to affect those greater speeds and trusted reliability. Also, the technologies in use make it very hard for an inside malicious employee to sniff the network as it Giga Bit HUB’s have intelligence built into them that will alert the Network Operations Center (normally called a NOC) that this activity is going on. Tracing it to a specific port in a certain geographical area. This helps secure the Network and is a tool used to user both the Data and the Quality of Service (QoS) for the Network and assist in thwarting malicious employee attacks.

Also, the Network appears to have built in redundancy when it comes to accessing the Internet. This is done by the use of a CISCO Systems 7609 Router and a CISCO Systems ASA 5510 VPN (Virtual Private Network) Router. This configuration allows for secure VPN and Internet traffic through the ASA 5510 VPN Router, used for remote access to inside the protected areas of the Hospitals Network. The 7609 Router is connected to an OC 1 line, this is type of SONET Network it connect to. Running at speeds of 51.84 MBps (Mega Bytes per second) in both directions or Full-Duplex if you will. Please note that the designation of OC means that each ascending power of the OC scale is 51.84 MBps times the power it is being raised by. So a OC 3 line would be 51.84 MBps x 3 or 155.52 MBps. These two Routers assure reliability of Network traffic and a Fail Over if one router fails. Though it would be better for the Hospital if they used an additional two matching Routers and used what is called the CISCO Systems Hot Swappable Protocol to ensure near absolute up times. The CISCO Protocol mentioned allows for the setup of two identical Routers, one is designated as 0 the other is 1. They are changed to have the exact MAC address and IP Address. This is so if one of them fails, the other in the series takes over immediately and alerts the NOC that the first Router in the series has gone down. This may cost a little more for the hospital, but it is worth it to ensure uninterrupted access in and out of the Network. Much like the Fail Over Generators that they have installed.

Speaking of which, the Hospitals boasts of Backup Generators across the entire organization. This means that in the case of some sort of electrical interruption, like a power outage or even an electrical spiking. The Generators will kick in to ensure the quality of the Alternating Currents (AC) signal is what is known as a clean and usable signal. This will prevent the destruction of Hospital, PC and Network assets, thus ensuring that the Return On Investment (ROE) is fully returned. Most CTO would not like to replace millions of dollars in equipment before it is time.

· What may be missing from the current network architecture?

Looking at the information provided there are a few needed pieces of Network equipment missing. Such as a Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS), either a Network Appliance as offered by CISCO Systems or a Sever based approach as offered by www.IDSSoftware.com. For the purposes of ease of administration and shear speed we will talk about CISCO Systems products, not to endorse them. But, since they are currently in the Network in the form of the Routers, it would be an easy implementation of the hardware. The CISCO ASA Router is an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and will ensure the threats from outside of the Network are handled; it is the ones in the Network that the ASA Router will not detect. So the need for a NIDS is justified and can be an addition to the ASA Router. CISCO has a Firewall Appliance that can be used in concert with the ASA Router, thus ensuring near total protection of Network traffic. Lastly, CISCO Systems offers a module that can be added to the ASA Router thus making it a total solution in one package.

Even though there is Wi-Fi access form the Hospitals staff, there appears to be none for the patients and guest of the Hospital. This would be a major oversight since many family and friends visit the Hospital daily and some. Stay for weeks at a time. Since some Hospitals charge for TV access, it would be great to allow those who come there as either patients or guests to be able to do class work, remote in as if they were working from home to their jobs or to even watch movies and play games on the Network. The current infrastructure can handle the traffic, all that needs to be done is a VPN setup and the traffic will not interfere with the normal Hospital traffic as it will be moved along its own “Logical Channel” through Network Switches.

Network Switches are also absent from the Network diagram. This will allow for the setting up of VPNs and greater security throughout the Network. Since Switches allow for the traffic to be placed in Logical Channels, it is possible to allow each of the varying departments their own Network as it were. Providing for greater security for all Network users. I would suggest the CISCO Systems Switches, the CISCO Systems approach breaks the OSI 7 Layer model into a 3 Layer Model, thus allowing the CISCO Switches to forward all 7 Layers of the OSI Model. This allows for great use, flexibility and reliability from using the CISCO Switches. Thus to the Hospitals CTO (Chief Technical Officer), the return on investment would be huge as the Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) for these devices are literally years apart and the cost of them can be justified.

· Identify wireless technology in use and how it enhances the hospital network.

The Wi-Fi technology in use is a CISCO Systems solution of the 1250 5 GB Wireless Access Point (WAP). These devices are high-end and offer Enterprise Class performance, delivering effectively 600 MBs speeds. Able to offer jitter free audio and video for the Hospitals employees. This means Web based conferencing and meeting of all types can occur at once without a major degradation of the Networks performance. Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) is a set or standards that govern how devices use Cellular and Radio Networks. It also provides an inter operable platform that is vendor neutral, thus assuring across the board functionality. The layers used in WAP are:

· Wireless Application Environment (WAE)

· Wireless Session Layer (WSL)

· Wireless Transport Layer Security (WTLS)

· Wireless Transport Layer (WTP)

WAP was created by four companies: Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia, and Unwired Planet. This standard allows for secure communications and near instantaneous access of the Web. But the CISCO 1250s can run more than one access protocol standard, which is why they are called Autonomous Access Points. Also from the point of administration, these devices all have images. Like a PC HDD if you will, allowing for the loading of the images via Trivial File Transfer Protocol (TFTP). Since these devices are spread out across a Campus area, this is a welcome feature as it would be too costly to always have to send out an engineer each time one of the devices has an issue, You can also use the Web interface similar to the Linksys routers that we are all nearly familiar with. Again allowing for another way to access and manage these devices.

This CISCO Systems solution enhances the Network because it offers security, speed, QoS, encryption, the ability to carry all know protocols to my understanding, built in redundancy as there are two modules in each device and if on fails the other can route the traffic for the failed module and the ability to provide jitter free audio and video. Effectively moving the data at 600 MBs (Mega Bytes per second,) this provides confidence in the Network. This allows the hospital employees to work form the laptops or even smart phones like a BlackBerry, iPhone 4 or even use IP phones that I am sure have been implemented at the Hospital. These devices allow for the nearly teatherless movement of the staff from one end of the Campus to the other, freeing them to do more and be tied down even less than in years past. This should realize greater productivity from the staff and satisfaction with work. For a Hospital, this is an added bonus as employees will not miss time from places that they enjoy going into.
