Rock Hill Business, Education, and Community Online Network.
Broyles, Alan
The Business, Education & Community On-line Network (BEACON) is designed to support development and implementation of demonstration applications operating in an asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) fiber optic network environment. Initial origination and destination sites include high schools and universities around Rock Hill (South Carolina). The entities will partner to develop and implement applications such as: distance learning classes; faculty development seminars; computer network access and interlibrary access; teleconferencing; and health, drug abuse, and community health programming. The goal of the project is to link various public and private sector entities together with a 21st century telecommunications infrastructure providing a portfolio of information services and interactive telecommunication facilities to individual citizens from all socio-economic strata, government agencies, education systems, health care systems, and businesses. The majority of this paper consists of printouts of presentation slides with graphics illustrating components of the network. (SWC)
