Abstract:

The development of an advanced plan for office automation, the proposed implementation of an onsite supercomputer, and the imminent plans for a corporate data base will overburden the existing communication network at the US Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES. These events have accelerated the requirements for WES to upgrade its current communications network to handle the needs of the next 25 years. Plans have been formulated to integrate the data requirements of the entire WES site by constructing a high-speed fiber optic backbone network to handle any type of communication requirements. The ultimate objective is to allow any user to transparently communicate with any other device on the network. rh
