Abstract:

The report presents design recommendations by Bolt Beranek and Newman for the data collection function of a worldwide seismic data network. Particular attention has been paid to integrating both ARPA Network packet switching technology and conventional leased channels. It appears not only feasible but attractive to employ such a mixed approach. The resulting communication system should be reliable, flexible, and cost-effective. Two detailed protocols included in this report specify the communications between four remote array sites and a central Communications and Control Processor CCP and the communications between the CCP and the seismic network mass storage facility.
