The Naval Postgraduate School Ring Communication Network is a project which, when fully operational, will allow connection of designated computer facilities at the school. The capability provided to these facilities will be the transmission of data or messages to one another, which will allow sharing of resources. The main considerations in design of the network were modularity, to simplify construction and testing, and common hardware interfaces between the ring and each computer facility. To provide the capability to test all hardwaresoftware functions test procedures were developed, and a hardware test module was constructed. The basic design of the ring network and test module is described. Test procedures and results are presented, as well as a proposal for a system modification, and recommendations concerning follow-on development of the system.
