A Software Defined Integrated T1 Digital Network for Voice, Data and Video.
Hill, James R.
The Dallas County Community College District developed and implemented a strategic plan for communications that utilizes a county-wide integrated network to carry voice, data, and video information to nine locations within the district. The network, which was installed and operational by March 1987, utilizes microwave, fiber optics, digital cross connect and T1 technology to provide the first software-defined educational network to merge all three technologies into one common digital pipeline. The plan included provisions for planning and installation of new digital switches for voice, a packet switched-wide area network for data, and compressed video codes for video teleconferencing and instruction. This report describes: (1) the development of the strategic plan; (2) the technology procurement process; (3) the process of planning for installation; and (4) the installation and implementation events.
