Abstract : This thesis demonstrates the application of design theory as it relates to the generic LAN for the Naval Academy of the ROC (ROCNA). The first part of the study covers a theory dealing with system analysis and design, network technology and data communication. This is used for a foundation for the development of a end-user survey and feasibility study for the ROCNA LAN. Chapter III of this study is a background of the ROCNA and an analysis of the Naval Academy's network requirements. In Chapter IV a generic LAN is developed to meet the ROCNAs requirements and different alternative designs are investigated. A cost-benefit analysis is performed to select between the design alternatives. The design selected uses a point to point connection dual ring backbone and a 10BaseT star topology for subnetworks. Finally, recommendations and conclusions are presented in Chapter V for more emphasis on information technology education in the ROC Armed Forces and specifically at the ROCNA.
