dc.description.abstractThis thesis highlights the need for specific guidance and standards in the U. S. Marine Corps local area network ( LAN) specification and selection process. Media, topologies, components, access methods, protocols, standards and other technologies are used to characterize the current technical environment. A strategy for LAN specification and selection is presented. This strategy stresses top-down, user requirement, protocol performance oriented techniques vice the bottom-up, technical design selection oriented techniques in use today. Thorough documentation of user requirements, higher-level services, higher-level protocols, and an information and networking strategy along with other considerations like facilities/support, expected general performance, network management, and security is the method proposed for preparation of a complete specification document. A centrally coordinated U. S. Marine Corps specification and design database is also proposed to ensure future interoperability, connectivity, and support.
