2.1.2 CHART and SHA Telecommunications Working Group Technical Exchange Meetings
Several CHART and SHA Telecommunications Working Group Technical Exchange Meetings (TEMs) significantly influenced the development of CHART communication requirements for this analysis. Table 2-1 identifies these TEMs documented by E&K. Note that these meetings often included the same topics. This illustrates the iterative approach taken to ensure the study would address a validated set of CHART requirements.
Meetings minutes compiled by E&K document the main purpose of each meeting and significant topics discussed. Some of the requirements and issues discussed at these meetings include: bandwidth requirements; device types, technology, placement, and deployment schedules; network archictecture; system maintenance and reliability; role of shops; Montgomery County CCTV usage; use case scenarios; software development; surveillance and traveler information needs; full motion and compressed video; data and video interfaces; and the CSC study and deliverables. Details about the information discussed at each TEM and tables listing the attendees of each TEM are included in Appendix A
