Mbc Proposal For Homeland Security

  2. 2. NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR HOMELAND SECURITY Copyright  2005 McGraw Broadcast Communications, Inc. 2 FO RW ARD There is general industry-wide agreement that there is a need to make the Publicly Switched Telecommunications Network (PSTN) easier by creating new ways for service providers to operate; and, the very consistent feeling around the world is that all networks of the future will be based, but not dependent on, Internet protocol. MBC proposes to set-in-motion the direction in technical architecture for 21st Century Networks. This will require real innovation as well. To recommend investment in capital expenditures in network equipment and other areas. In short, the creation of an Integrated Network Design Yardstick (INDY). The PSTN is undeniably well connected. Its haphazard infrastructure, with countless network applications, ensures that its customers can make millions of voice and data calls every minute of every day to anywhere in the world. However, this makes it difficult to imagine how anyone might consolidate so many networks down to just a few or even one network that can run “exactly” the same services. At-the-same-time we recognize the truth of the one-size-fits-many approach; that indeed “many” might argue that IP routing is the control system of primary concern nowadays —although in IP the control system is still evolving. Therefore, one of the fundamental architectural principles of an INDY is to avoid prohibiting the use of any current or future network control architecture. Therefore, the goal should be to provide an environment conducive to the continued evolution of program control over multiple platforms that transport network applications across the entire range of broadcast and communications circuitry.* Simultaneously —efforts are now focusing on growing control architecture in security and other areas. This being so… the INDY approach becomes the exact approach needed for the 21st century. Identify the higher-level networks of which every system is a part, specify how the pieces interact, both to aid growth in convergence, and significantly reduce cost. Fundamentally, we need to move towards designing a network that can emulate our current application requirements, not only at the end of the network, but also over an GMPLS data network at its core. How? Traditionally, the PSTN has tended to build new networks alongside existing ones, resulting in multiple networks (overlay) and end systems that could be consolidated so as to reduce capital and operational costs; but, this can only be made possible by looking at the minutiae of every network application. It will also require close examination of the topology in the network, node by node, and an assessment of how we can design network applications to be used in a combined way (dynamically), while utilizing the minimum amount of boxes. To achieve these things is through development a working model (+10-10) program demonstrating network consolidation. MBC understands well the large-scale threat this country is facing and the speed with which change must be executed if it is to stay ahead of another 911. MBC is a company that has intellectual property and twenty-five years experience consolidating multiple networks and can assist communities to reap the benefits in terms of being able to offer a wider range of applications services over the PSTN’s infrastructure; while, enjoying reduced operating costs. The technical question to be answered now is: Can the INDY be done on a much larger scale? — McGraw Broadcast Communications
  3. 3. NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR HOMELAND SECURITY Copyright  2005 McGraw Broadcast Communications, Inc. 3 *See diagram on cover page. MISSIO N ST AT EM ENT Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime, on Anything —Convergence: Lay the foundation for an interconnection strategy that underpins this nation’s homeland security, compatible with a National Information Infrastructure (NII); particularly in the context of critical infrastructure and asset protection, throughout the United States and its territories. This interconnection strategy will provide fully- integrated telecommunications services for coordinated action on the part of federal, state, and local governments; the private sector; and citizens across the country and the world. This strategy will also meet the needs for a growing Global Information Infrastructure (GII). ST RAT EG Y The National Strategy for the Physical Protection of Critical Infrastructures and Key Assets, the Strategy: Although MBC is not the originator of a collaborative environment strategy in which federal, state, and local governments and the private sector can better protect the infrastructures and assets they control, the inspiration having been initiated by the President, MBC is uniquely suited to capture this market with existing technologies assembled together under USPTO #5,577,042 Non-Traditional Broadcast and Presentation System (NTB/PS). INT EG RAT ED NET W O RK DESIG N YARDST ICK (INDY)* SCALABILITY The degree to which audio, video and image formats can be combined in systematic proportions for distribution over different communication channels. EXTENSIBILITY A design standard ensuring technological advances—and hence future functionality of systems—that can be incorporated over time, thus ensuring against technological obsolescence (forwards and backwards compatibility). INTEROPERABILITY A design standard that facilitates easy conversion between frequencies/formats and easy sharing of digital information across different media. *See Problem, Overlay, Cloverleaf ppt
  4. 4. NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR HOMELAND SECURITY Copyright  2005 McGraw Broadcast Communications, Inc. 4 Homeland Security and Infrastructure Protection: A Shared Responsibility. A set of guiding principles for a domestic protection strategy. A new national cooperative paradigm in which federal, state, and local governments and the private sector can better protect the infrastructures and assets they control.* 1. USPTO #5,577,042 —a framework around which MBC will delineate protocol design and implementation standards that will underpin these goals. 2. Create a cross-sector interconnection (NTB/PS) strategy to/from service nodes for transmission and signal arrangement across local and long-distance telecommunication networks. 3. Establish viable and affordable facilities (“Nodes”) with systems, and functions that together simplify critical infrastructures that are highly sophisticated and complex. This infrastructure capability will also consist of key nodes that, in turn, will be essential to the operation of the critical infrastructures in which they function (i.e., Energy and Transportation). 4. MBC will aggressively implement the NTB/PS at these nodes with the utilization of current, state- of-the-art telecommunications technologies. Nodes will include human assets and physical and cyber systems that will work together utilizing “processes” that are highly sophisticated and complex. 5. Because the lion’s share of critical infrastructures and key assets are owned and operated by the private sector all systems must feature secure multi-channel configurations for video/audio communication and data exchange. The network will also need to inaugurate "high resolution" video service content for corporate, medical, and citizen end-users accessible by fiber optic, wireline, wireless and/or satellite. 6. Develop interoperable secure communications systems across the United States and internationally for the purpose of establishing "security" with/between domestic nodes and/or market sectors and nodes in other countries. 7. MBC will complement security priorities for cross-sections of our multiple sectors government society and economy and near term priorities for traditional broadcast, including sharing and threat indications and warnings and its relationship to non-traditional visual/audio based communication channels. 8. Establish training/marketing programs to familiarize individuals, businesses, and institutions with the capabilities and the flexibility of this infrastructure for conducting sector-specific protection practices and methodologies. 9. Foster planning and resource allocation. Nodes as hotbeds collaborative mechanisms for government/industry initiatives and protection planning. Emphasis should be placed on risk- management and key asset geospatial database, technologies, and ideas. 10. Establish Curriculum standards for the use of these processes worldwide.
  5. 5. NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR HOMELAND SECURITY Copyright  2005 McGraw Broadcast Communications, Inc. 5 *This document is to be reasoned out in conjunction with +10-10 ppt presentation. SECT O R (MANAG ED VARIABL E BANDW IDT H) MBC recognizes that communications networks have traffic attributes (frequency and format) that are vastly different from each other and for which reason a system-wide approach is needed to variably manage both bandwidth and applications. USPTO #5,577,042 is a patented method that provides a unique cloverleaf advantage (time to market). The method systematizes interconnection services for heterogeneous network environments intermittently, in single and combination, and includes multiple transport schemes for 1) transactional (data), 2) intelligence (VOD), and 3) collaboration (Video Communication). Moreover, dynamic bandwidth management provides better bandwidth for superior network availability and reliability (QoS). S E C T O R D E S C R I P T I O N A P P L I C A T I O N P R O J E C T I O N Emergency Radio Frequency Identification Telemedicine Anatomical Diagnostics Architectural & Engineering High Resolution Imaging Telemedicine can play a significant role with administrative interaction for patient diagnosis, medical image consultation, and emergency services. The option of conferencing subject matter experts on behalf of the public health sector in times of crisis. The ability to communicate consistent, accurate information, as well as inform, instruct and treat patients during public health emergencies. Engineering and Architectural interaction is very similar in scope they require the ability to transport high-resolution, high-quality images and for sharing best practices as well. However, these modalities have limited applicability for extended usage due to capital costs of equipment and the operational limitations of present overlay telecommunications environments. And interoperability, the ability of these sectors to simultaneously communicate and coordinate communications resources in parallel during crises situations is, from a communications perspective, an imperative. S E C T O R D E S C R I P T I O N A P P L I C A T I O N P R O J E C T I O N Governmental/Academia Synergy Specify how the pieces interact, not how they act: The NTB/PS would provide a multi-resolution framework where dynamic (algorithmic) deformations can be developed with committed information rate (CIR). The methodologist would preside over an intracommunication (closed circuit) network providing managed variable bandwidth through optical video interface devices (OVIDs); where simultaneous interactive high definition (+10) display is as practical as broadcast quality at low resolution (-10). Other practicable applications for these functions include administrative and/or technical discussions and presentations. Were all interested parties not able to be present at the event, intraconnectivity by OVID would allow the signal source to be stored, even stored/reformatted into other

Unfortunately, for the majority of the private sector on the run in the real world, the cost of maintaining dedicated services is prohibitive. On the other hand, the NTB/PS will offer an instantaneous solution bandwidth on demand (BoD). In fact, for the prototypical end user, the "Node" must move application services more economically and efficiently than any current offering by any carrier in the marketplace today. Furthermore, by spreading service costs for BoD over many users, the NTB/PS effectively begins the process of sanctioning the "Application's Entrepreneur" in the search for more coordination and integration which would lead to permanent communications solutions. S E C T O R D E S C R I P T I O N A P P L I C A T I O N P R O J E C T I O N Cross Sector Quality of Service (QoS) Best Effort (BE) is representative of present transport strategies thus a harbinger of more effective Information Infrastructure to come. The unavoidable basis in fact is an awkward conglomeration of isolated systems still exists; with unique requirements that do not blend well with IP. Conversely, Cross Sector characterizes a natural marriage of many voices, a complex infrastructure of communities, assuming many applications. An integrated infrastructure where all telecommunications systems must be efficiently brought together (aggregated services). What is needed then is Quality of Service (QoS). The NTB/PS provides access to multiple seamless transport environments with five nine (99.999) efficiency.

Interdomain routing between autonomous systems (AS). Downstream service provisders (DSPs) literally transform themselves on-demand as threats arise. Associations, partnerships, and the general public—all users of the network in today's world —can gain secure entry. More than just information... the NTB/PS utilizes route stability and vulnerability analysis to attacks or configuration to outside sources for access to anyone, anywhere, anytime on anything.

Efficiently and realistically synthesizing virtual scenes (human vision). Deformation of various structural, anatomical and individual processes. Mastering real-time motion in real scenes. Analysis and synthesis of human images. Overall, by achieving a virtual environment, significant improvement in perceptual information sharing can be attained for examination of suspect indications even as/or before warnings are issued.

The NTB/PS has the capacity to serve this need for transport and distribution services without the need for expensive systems redundancy located at each site. Distribution of Video on Demand (VOD) from each Node could be conducted via relatively low-cost Optical Video Interface Devices (OVIDs). PRO J ECT ED DIST RIBUT IO N
  8. 8. NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR HOMELAND SECURITY Copyright  2005 McGraw Broadcast Communications, Inc. 8 Modeling and simulation of telecommunications networks for control and management: To familiarize client/sector manager with both traditional and new technologies, structures and methods as capacity planners will have a profound long term impact on how the access network shapes-up to the future. To develop this novel methodology —MBC has an architecture for exploring a variety of cross-sector working models —particularly those that will be interactively manipulable and that display characteristics (natural interfaces) that exhibit recognized similarities in applications that demand secure and interactive requirements. GO AL Our goal should be to make significant reductions on capital expenditure in network equipment and other areas of telecommunications by the end of this decade. The objective is to participate in the Homeland Security procurement process through partnership with a leading government services organization. To establish McGraw Broadcast Communications as a profitable "system designer" by close of the second business year with a marginal return against investment and demonstrate a high-growth potential (and return) beginning in the third operational year. MARKET TRAINING ST RAT EG Y Introduce leading government services organizations to the capabilities of the NTB/PS and various visual-based applications INDY enables potential users. Special attention should be directed towards using a gradual approach so that potential users and system operators can digest the concept and get-up-to-speed. Once a prototype is established this could be done on-line by using the NTB/PS itself as an instructional tool. Additionally, public seminars and interactive simulations could be scheduled to showcase the NTB/PS's capabilities. As the network of Nodes is expanded National Information Seminars should be directly coordinated and conducted by those familiar with Homeland Security issues. TECHNO L O G ICAL EDG E MBC is committed to the general handling of digital data—in terms of its architecture, hierarchy, coding and decoding, processing, compression, and conversion. Furthermore, the underlying motive for developing an INDY standard is that it also encompasses high-definition and high- resolution imagery. Why? Because we have based our system on the belief that a far more broad-based system will better facilitate a wider range of applications within all facets of our society—including our workplaces and our centers for learning, culture, and civilian response. Recognizing that such a vision will include all forms of picture and data sources we hope to continue to unify as many of these as possible in a manner that still ensures all end-user's needs are met—but with a more simple and flexible system between "them all."

  11. 11. NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR HOMELAND SECURITY Copyright  2005 McGraw Broadcast Communications, Inc. 11 SUM M ARY In sum: Today’s communications infrastructure is composed of interdependent, diverse, circuit and packet switched networks using terrestrial, satellite and wireless transmission systems to support voice, data, image, and video communications. Supported primarily by software-based controls, communications networks (TV and Telecom) and information systems (Data) have inextricably diverged into an information infrastructure in which neither communications nor information processing can fully function in the company of each other. Our application strategy, managing existing control standards, will offer capabilities and applications that will profoundly change how both the public and private sectors view themselves; with increasing reliance on the full spectrum of radio frequencies; thus comprising an entire (coherent) communication infrastructure. [See: Banwidth Access Tecnologies] MBC is a contracctor focused on patented technology and prepared to offer a governmental services organization an Integrated Network Design Yardstick (INDY); a managed variable bandwidth network control plane standard to resolve various communications issues associated with non-traditional broadcast and presentation. MBC combines not only the systems integration knowledge, but the design/build experience to accomplish this today, not tomorrow.… What is the future for MBC as a focal point for homeland security? Perhaps a truth that everyone knows but no one speaks is that while a profitable opportunity might be a reason, it is never the real reason. A louder truth is that competitive reality a licensed, patented method, to assist in time-to-market and communications infrastructure building will become the real reason. The age of convergence is upon us, and we stand on the verge of another technological revolution, this one in dynamic management of variable broadband communications —INDY.
