The implementation of Fiber Optic lines were started but placed on hold for the clinic due to unforeseen circumstances. The clinic is currently running on two T1 lines but working towards adding more bandwidth to accommodate for the new Dental system and GUI system used in Medical Records. Right now we are running solid now with no latency between our servers and end user workstations thus improving productivity from personnel.
