Abstract:

The Joint Fleet Telecommunications Operations Center JFTOC acts, on behalf of the Naval Computer and Telecommunications Command, as the fleets one-stop shop for information services. Effective fault management is vital to ensuring reliable network service. Currently, however, the JFTOC employs a Fault Management System FMS that consists primarily of manual processes and non-networked resources. Users require a system that provides a centralized and accessible source of near-real time fault management information. This thesis uses the methodology of the Department of Defense DoD Technical Architecture Framework for Information Management TAFIM. TAFIM outlines a structured approach for migrating legacy systems to a open systems, standards-based target architecture. Through application of the TAFIM process, a target FMS architecture, termed HelpDesk On-Line Information System HOLIS, is developed. HOLIS includes the existing NCTAMS classified local area network and SIPRNet infrastructure network operating system, office automation, e-mail and database software from the interim Navy Automated information System Standards list and commercial off-the-shelf help desk software. Four migration paths are outlined, and one is selected as the best option for moving from the baseline system to the target FMS.
