This thesis discusses current interoperability issues that exist with video teleconferencing systems in the Department of Defense (DoD). Recent advances in video compression and the creation of a high speed digital communications infrastructure have caused a proliferation of video teleconference networks and systems throughout the DoD. The current array of video teleconferencing systems within the DoD is followed by a discussion interoperability problems. This information medium has not fully reached its potential due in part to interoperability issues such as dissimilar compression algorithms, incompatible transmission speeds and carriers, and transmission security equipment. This is followed by a detailed analysis of standard which are currently making positive impacts these interoperability problems. Finally, a migration strategy is recommended that is designed to overcome many of the interoperability issues presented. Additionally, transmission security and future growth issues are explored and their applicability to video teleconferencing.
