Abstract:

Maritime data communications are expensive and of limited capacity. Currently there is no established infrastructure to support Internet connectivity for sea-going vessels. The SeaNet program is investigating maritime networking solutions. One aspect of the SeaNet program is promoting remote network management. Remote network management will provide the maritime research community with a flexible and cost-effective tool for monitoring sea based assets. The objective of this thesis is to investigate remote network management over a satellite connection in support of the SeaNet programs goals. To research the potential for remote network management, the Naval Postgraduate School has developed its own SeaNet laboratory. This laboratory simulates both the shipboard and shore-based infrastructure of the SeaNet program and conducts remote network management on these components. This thesis discusses the SeaNet program, network management concepts, the NPS SeaNet laboratory, research findings and recommendations for fliture research. Remote Network Management of the SeaNet Control Node system is possible, however, continued research in this area is needed.
