Within DOD, there exists many different network platforms and configurations. Managing multiple platforms with different protocols, configurations, and applications is a challenging task for a network manager. A possible solution to efficiently manage these multiple platforms is to allow platforms to share resources, databases, and applications. In the Software Metrics Lab at the Naval Postgraduate School two disparate networks exist: a LocalTalk network and an IBM Token Ring network. Interconnection and interoperability between these networks is possible. This thesis uses a combination of three interconnection approaches: protocol function, network access, and network services approach to design an interconnected network. This thesis provides a proposed solution and an implementation plan, along with estimated hardware and software costs. The methodology used to reach a solution is a combination of a literature review on network connectivity, and interviews with consultants, technical editors of network magazines, and the school's cognizant lab managers.
