Abstract : There are few more significant topic in todays IT world than the integration of disparate, application specific, physically separated networks into integrated systems. These 'islands of automation' networks are unable to share data or resources, thereby promoting duplication of both. This duplication wastes man-hours and money. In today's climate of downsizing and streamlining in government and the military, this is unacceptable. This study will plan and implement the integration of three such networks of the Systems Management Department of the Naval Postgraduate School. Integrating the LAN laboratories will provide for improved utilization of resources, increased reliability and uniform access to all network resources regardless of the users physical location. Moreover this study will provide an 'in the trenches' perspective of LAN integration.
