Annotation: A REVIEW OF THE REQUIREMENTS AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR AN INTRASTATE CRIMINAL JUSTICE COMMUNICATIONS SWITCHER IS PROVIDED IN RESPONSE TO A REQUEST FOR TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE FROM NEVADA.
Abstract: AN EXAMINATION WAS CONDUCTED OF THE EXISTING AND PROPOSED COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS AND TRAFFIC VOLUMES FOR THE PURPOSE OF SWITCHER PROCUREMENT. A THROUGHPUT ANALYSIS WAS PERFORMED TO DETERMINE THE SWITCHER RESPONSE TIME REQUIRED FOR HANDLING PEAK LOADS WITHIN AN ACCEPTABLE UTILIZATION FACTOR. THIS ANALYSIS IS DISCUSSED IN CONJUNCTION WITH A REVIEW OF THE CURRENT SWITCHER RFP AND THE CONSULTANT OBSERVATIONS ON THE RFP. A COST ESTIMATE WAS MADE FOR THE SWITCHER SPECIFIED IN THE RFP; A TABLE IS PROVIDED DETAILING THE COST OF THE HARDWARE, SOFTWARE, AND INSTALLATION OF THE SYSTEM, ESTIMATED TO COST $161,120. IT IS NOTED THAT THE TRAFFIC ESTIMATES FOR THE NATIONAL CRIME INFORMATION CENTER APPEAR HIGH, THAT THE SWITCHER SHOULD BE ABLE TO ABSORB PROJECTED GROWTH FOR 5 YEARS WITHOUT EXCEEDING A LOADING OF 70 PERCENT, AND THAT OPERATING COSTS AND PERSONNEL COSTS HAVE NOT BEEN ESTIMATED.
