Abstract: Communication networks designed for offices need to handle a variety of text, voice, data and images. Such office communication systems should not impose extraneous limitations on the work done by the office workers. Applying simple measures of human factors results in predictions on the requirements and the nature of future office communications systems. The average information communication rates are dominated by voice. Peak data rates are generated by transmitting images due to human factor considerations. Peak text rates approach voice data rates. Data compression techniques and high performance image compression processors are likely to be necessary to meet communication requirements of the office. Communication network performance will have to be increased significantly from current network speeds to prevent information bottlenecks. © 1990.
