Abstract
The current Automatic Digital Network (AUTODIN) communications system provides excellent message communications service within the Defense Communications System. However, AUTODIN speed of service objectives end at the Telecommunications Center (TCC). This gap between AUTODIN and end-user organizations causes delays and frustration to users who expect minimal delay in writer-to-reader message service. The Defense Message System (DMS) promises to deliver true writer-to-reader message service by extending automation from the TCC to the organizational level. DMS also promises to standardize message communication services for DOD ServicesAgencies. This paper proposes a phased DMS implementation for a Marine Corps Base (MCB). Additionally, the protocol conversion processes illustrate some significant issues present during the transition to DMS. The intent of this paper is to suggest a network topology to implement DMS with additional Dividends of using this topology with minimal rehabilitation in implementing succeeding DMS phases.
