Re: CRAFT Configuration

In our discussions with the person from Onenet, I asked whether or not they
could do some compression using off the shelf communications equipment.  For
example, we have some ISDN routers that do compress the data before sending it
via ISDN.  This may give you a way of reducing the bandwidth without having to
put a PC in the WFO.  However, the problem is that you end would still be
getting a lot of uncompressed data once it came off of the data lines.  There
are some advantages to the PCs in the WFO, but if that is not possible, you
still may be able to use lower cost communications lines.
