Telemedicine is the most promising one for improving the access to specialized health services to all remote, rural areas in all developing countries. Exploiting the technological advancements in the field of electronics, signal processing and software a communication network for telemedicine is proposedfor the existing twisted pair based public switched public data network. To expand the bandwidth capability of twisted pair network to gain the near capability of optical fiber based Broadband Integrated System Digital Network BIS'DN), additional subsystems High-BitRate Digital Subscriher Line (HDSL), Asymmetric Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) and the advanced modulation techniques for bandwidth compression are discussed. A complete communication network for delivering telemedicine to all the developing countries is presented.
