The MAG Regional Community Network (RCN) Study evaluated telecommunications solutions to support multi-modal transportation efforts, which ultimately improve traffic congestion mitigation activities in the region. The RCN began in fiscal year 2001 and is a joint project of the Intelligent Transportation (ITS) Committee and Technology Advisory Group.
What were the objectives of the MAG RCN Project?
- Develop a design and implementation plan to support the needs of MAG member agencies and the regional business and education community for quality real-time communications.
- Reduce duplicative costs for the provision of voice, video and data transfer in and among MAG member agencies.
- Support regionally significant multi-modal transportation related activities that ultimately reduce vehicle miles traveled, relieve traffic congestion, and reduce air pollution.
What did the MAG RCN Project do?
- Identified the telecommunication needs to link the 27 MAG member agencies and private partners within the region.
- Provided an implementation plan that can be used by individual agencies to create a cohesive communication infrastructure.
- Provided regional guidelines on how and where to invest telecommunication resources.
- Widened the telecommunication possibilities within the region.
