The report establishes the standards to be followed by designers in developing the Northeast Corridor (NEC) communication system. The proposed communication system supports other major functional systems such as centralized traffic control, supervisory control, and data acquisition for the electric traction power system, security, maintenance, and administration, in addition to a number of other users on and off the NEC. The proposed communication system will provide full communication service for the support of all railroad operations. Dual path redundancy will be provided for critical circuits to support all essential operations. The communication system concept envisions a trunk line connecting major nodes, each governing local distribution networks connecting a number of local terminals along the Corridor.
