Due to the speed and complexity of communication networks being designed today, it is imperative to ensure that they operate correctly. Todays fiber optic networks, which can transmit billions of bits per second over thousands of miles, are heavily dependent on sophisticated software and protocols which are becoming increasingly difficult to test. Conformance testing is a method that is used for this purpose: to test the design of a protocol against an implementation of the design. This thesis provides some insight into the conformance testing problem by first providing background on some current protocol test methods, and then focusing on a newer method, which is based on a fonnal protocol specification. A proof is given that demonstrates the method's error detection capabilities Two well known local area network protocols. Token Bus and Fiber Distributed Data Interface (FDDI), are used as examples to illustrate how the test method is applied to a specification.

Analyzing the Effects of Source Selection Method, Acquisition Type, and Service Component on Acquisition Outcomes Landale, Karen A. F.; Rendon, Rene G. (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2017-03); SYM-AM-17-094For years, one of the most hotly contested debates in contracting and acquisition has been the choice of source selection method and the contract-related consequences of that choice. While policy memos encourage contracting ...
