VA Medical Center at White River Junction, Vermont every day fulfills the promise of President Abraham Lincoln: "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan".

The 64 acre campus, high on a hill in the Upper Connecticut River Valley services over 94,000 Vermont and New Hampshire veterans, our nation’s best. The campus includes a 60 bed acute care facility, 47,000 square feet of research facilities, an ambulatory care building and buildings for clinical and administrative services. The VA Medical Center is affiliated with Dartmouth Medical School and the University of Vermont, School of Medicine. The Center operates 4 Outpatient clinics in Vermont and New Hampshire.

Connectivity with its partner Ronco Communications has been providing voice and data services to the Medical Center for several years. These include moves, adds and changes, cabling of new, expanded or renovated facilities, and the extension of fiber optic backbone cabling to new or remodeled facilities.

The existing 62.5/125 micron multi mode backbone cable plant was designed and installed by others over 15 years ago. While the backbone was providing adequate service for existing application, it was becoming more and more difficult to launch new, bandwidth hungry applications. Recognizing the problem Connectivity and Ronco conducted a study of the existing backbone and made recommendations to the Med Center IT staff.

The VA commissioned Ronco and Connectivity to design and install a new 50/125 micron, lazer optimized multimode backbone. The backbone was designed to reach all the equipment rooms on the campus utilizing existing underground and in building pathways and was designed to be installed to be cutover to with minimal disruption of service to end users in this 24/7 365 day critical care facility.

The new backbone went live in a tightly coordinated process with the VA IT staff in less than 6 hours, with less than 2 minutes disruption to any single user and with zero faults.

Varian Semiconductor Equipment Co.

Varian Semiconductor Equipment Co. of Gloucester, MA leads the world in the design, manufacture, market and service of semiconductor processing capital equipment. Varian leads all other semiconductor processing equipment suppliers, world wide, combined!

We are proud that Varian has been a client of Connectivity for over 15 years. We have helped Varian by providing data and voice cabling in its expansion of its campus in Gloucester.

This past year Varian decided to locate a new, “state of the art‿data center in a separate facility to support its administrative, operations, and research facilities mission critical applications. Through numerous planning sessions with Varian IT staff, Connectivity helped Varian to develop the strategy to insure that 10G applications could be delivered seamlessly to every corner of the sprawling Gloucester campus.

The solution was the design, installation and testing of a single mode fiber optic backbone with diversified pathways to each of the equipment rooms on the campus. The project included inside plant and outside plant pathway construction, cable placement, termination and testing. The new single mode backbone was designed so that the failure by accident or other malfunction on any data center to equipment room connection could be immediately mitigated by routing traffic to the alternate pathway. Thus insuring consistent data delivery throughout the campus. The backbone was commissioned on time and on budget.
