State Criminal Justice Telecommunications (STACOM). Final Report. Volume III: Requirements Analysis and Design of Texas Criminal Justice Telecommunications Network.
Fielding, J. E.; And Others
Requirements analysis and design for the Texas Criminal Justice Telecommunications Network are provided in this report on the application in the state of Texas of techniques developed by the STACOM project. These techniques focus on identification of user requirements and network designs for criminal justice information on a state-wide basis. Techniques for analyzing user requirements include methods for determining data required, data collection, data organization procedures, and methods for forecasting the volume of network traffic. Network design techniques center around a computerized topology program that enables the user to generate least cost network topologies that satisfy network requirements for traffic, response time, and other specified functions. Appendices include the state level questionnaire and user survey. (Author/CMV)
