Abstract : Computer data communication at the Naval Postgraduate School is about to be revolutionized. No longer will departmental computer users be limited to the resources available to them at their site. The NPS Connectivity and Networking Committee has proposed an innovative, high-speed Campus Network which promises to provide connectivity to virtually all NPS computing resources, regardless of building location or controlling department. This paper describes the composition of the Connectivity and Networking Committee and explains the network proposal that its members made. Certain aspects of this proposal are elaborated upon, including fiber optics as a transmission medium and the Committee's recommendations for inter-networking protocols. Keywords: These; Local area networks; BITS(Base Information Transfer System); Optical communications; BITS Computer program.
