Modem Department of Defense C4I systems utilize high speed commercial computer networks, composed of commercial equipment and connectivity. The United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) SCAMPI (not an acronym) Network was a forerunner of this trend. Industry uses the same type of circuits but approaches the network management of these circuits from a financial interest versus the military strategic and tactical aspects considered by the service user. This thesis analyzes this representative network in the context of industry network management and metrics practices. The thesis first surveys and explains the industry practices most prevalent in this changing environment and then examines the practices in place at USSOCOM. The compilation of industry wide network management and metrics procedures is followed by a series of problem/solution recommendations for the SCAMPI network. These recommendations are explained in the context of current industry practices. This is followed by a series of emerging industry trends and technical developments which most likely will affect the implementation of network management and metrics tools. These developments are followed by a comprehensive industry definitions section, network bibliography, and a hypertext link guide to current military, industry and educational institutions networking solutions
