T. Layne Livingston; Donald R. Macken

Abstract: This report describes a study by the Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS), to plan a moderate expansion of the National Crime Information Center communication system. Improvements discussed are transmission of data at higher rates than currently used and a communication system that will serve advancing needs of law enforcement for many years. Applicable common carrier rate structures are analyzed to determine the most economical operation.
