Senior network engineer Dean Birdsall came up with the network hardware design, IP address scheme, routing scheme and security policy to support LaClinica current network and future networking needs.  WirelessTEK installed WatchGuard FireBox II firewalls and Cisco PIXs firewall, Cisco 2600/3600 routers and Cisco Aireonet bridges and wireless access point’s equipment to connect all the remote location and other clinics that need access to data services. All work had to be done with little to no network interruptions since some of the clinics work late in the evenings and network outage would hindrance La Clinica users and patients.  One of La Clinica major concerns was security La Clinica lets other none La Clinica own clinics us their main server for cretin application such as medial billing WirelessTEK setup security policy and access-list to accomplish these security issues.
