Annotation: This guide is to assist telecommunications planners in local communities in planning and executing a successful implementation of a new, technologically complex telecommunications system.
Abstract: The guide describes the implementation of a Digitally Addressed Trunked Communications System (DATCS). The planning and implementation steps described reflect the experiences of four communities in Kentucky, Pennsylvania, Utah, and Arizona, where a DATCS System Implementation Plan was developed. This guide discusses the activites related to the conceptual design of the new system, whose implementation plan is outlined in a special exhibit. Assistance to comunities planning to implement a DATCS is provided though guidelines on how to define an acceptable system concept for specific community needs, organizing for project management, securing agreements of participation of the appropriate agencies, and developing a master project schedule. After the system concept has been approved, community implementation managers will find in this guide a description of the steps required in the implementation process. Four appendixes cover suggested agency agreements, data acquisition, current system inventory, and a statement of work.
