Abstract : The purpose of this effort is to project the near term characteristics of public data networks and Group 4 facsimile systems, and estimate the efficiency with which Group 4 messages will be transmitted over various types of data networks (e.g. packed switched, circuit switched, and the public switched telephone network.) Characteristics of packed switched, circuit switched, and public switched networks were analyzed and projected. The present status of Group 4 facsimile and its technical characteristics in the near term were analyzed and projected. Hypothetical networks were constructed consisting of the projected characteristics of Group 4 facsimile equipment transmitting over the three different types of baseline data networks (e.g. packet switched, circuit switched, and the Public Switched Telephone Network). The efficiency with which the facsimile data was handled by these representative networks was also estimated. (Author)
