About the research

Abstract: This research will investigate the various options for getting RWIS and other data back and forth between remote sites and a central location, while looking for efficiencies of existing and new technologies that reduce costs, ultimately recommending specific technologies and/or methods to reduce telecommunications costs. The ultimate benefits of this research include cost savings and performance enhancements as states look to expand the data and services from upgraded RWIS sites.
