5 Promoting 3 Tier Model 5 Layer 1: Secure Internet Protocol (IP)-based broadband network (Infrastructure Development )

6 Promoting 3 Tier Model - Layer 2 6 Layer 2: Hardware conferencing and server core that is the technology hub R-AHEC provides Layer 2 – serving as aggregator and response facilitator, as education and training resource and as a technology enabled Rural Resource Center

8 Dedicated Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) Virtual Private Network (VPN) The WNYRBHN network will provide a secure, dedicated healthcare backbone, accessible to all WNYRBHN partners. A facility’s own firewall determines how, when, what and with whom they choose to connect. Data stays within the MPLS network and unlike some current Internet connections, your data stays both within the network (and within NYS). Other Internet providers may route your data through several hubs in multiple states.
