ABSTRACT
The article discusses using old telecommunications protocols in Alaska as a solution to providing remote communities with higher bandwidth. In regards to telemedicine (x-ray image attachments and diagnostic data), remote villages that don't have dial-up service are in need of a better telecommunications infrastructure in the event of a medical emergency. It comments on a project funded by the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA) that addresses the issue by providing computers, software, and digital cameras.
