Abstract : This was a joint Rome Laboratory/ARPA advanced development effort that: (1) provided wide area high speed networking services for the New York State (NYS) Arpanet; (2) created the National Networking Testbed (NNET); and (3) developed Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) software tools. Under the first task, existing NYS Arpanet users were provided Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) network service and support, access to the Defense Research Internet (DRI) with connectivity to the Internet, and upgraded service from 56 kbps to 1.544 mbps. The second task involved the installation and operation of the NNT, a nationwide, high-speed computer data network dedicated to ARPA's use to support domestic military and NASA sites, with access provided to the U.S. Dept. of Energy. The NNT provided a non-production network environment to field test a variety of network infrastructure devices and management control software tools. The third task involved the development of network management software technology to operate and maintain reliable end-to-end NNT connectivity. In addition to SNMP software tools, some software development work involved applications related to the International Standards Organization Development Environment (ISODE) and X.5OO Directory areas.
