State Criminal Justice Telecommunications (STACOM). Final Report. Volume I: Executive Summary.
Fielding, J. E.; And Others
The State Criminal Justice Telecommunications (STACOM) project has developed techniques for the identification and analysis of user requirements and designs for networks for the dissemination of criminal justice information on a state-wide basis. Techniques developed for user requirements analysis include methods for determining data required, data collection, data organization, and forecasting the volume of network traffic. Network design techniques center around a computerized program that enables the user to generate least cost network topologies that satisfy network requirements for traffic, response time, and other specified functions. Results of the application of these techniques in Texas and Ohio are reported. (Author/CMV)
