Abstract:

This thesis explores transparent internetwork connectivity requirements for SPLICE Stock Point Logistics Integrated Communications Environment. SPLICE nodes shall be interconnected via the DDN Defense Data Network to form a wide area network supporting distributed processing. Implementation problems, short and long-term requirements for user terminal to server host transparent connectivity, electronic mail, and process to process internetworking connectivity are presented. Distributed processing through implementation of a DDS DirectoryDictionary System is explored. MILSTRIP requisition referral by Stock Points through distributed processing is presented. Implementation of Tandem Corporations EXPANDX.25 protocols versus DDN TCPIP and higher level DDN protocols are discussed. Packet switching, the CCITT X.25 and X.75 protocol standards, and an overview of the DDN TCPIP protocols are offered in the Appendices. Author
