VIDCO's Protocol Converter allows researchers to acquire patient data from patient monitoring networks, including GE's Unity Network. No knowledge of the source protocols is required.

System Operation/Specification

Input(s): Unity Network Rwhat packets, Numeric Packets, Wave Packets
Outputs: VIDCO Discovery Packets, Numeric Packets, Wave Packets, Message Packets
Connections: 16 Patient monitor connections maximum per MDP2040-0216PC. Each connection will serve a single client.
Clients: If there is a need to support more than a single client per connection, the user can create their own client server from the received data and redistribute to as many additional clients as is needed.
Adding Patients: Additional MDP2040-0216PCs can be added to provide additional Patient monitor connections.



VIDCO switch connection port is configured to pass broadcasts, and data To/From the MDP2040-0216PC(s).
