  1. Data Communications Network Task Force Report

  2. PRESENTATION OUTLINE • I. TASK FORCE PRODUCT COMMITMENT • II. ASSESSMENT OF TECHNICAL SUITABILITY OF INITIAL ARCHITECTURE AND DEPLOYMENT STRATEGY • III. IMPLEMENTATION ANALYSIS • IV. ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT • V. RECOMMENDATIONS

  3. TASK FORCE PRODUCT COMMITMENT • • CREATE A COORDINATING COMMITTEE • • CREATE A STEERING COMMITTEE • • DEFINE THE TASK FORCE PURPOSE • • DEFINE TASK FORCE PRODUCT S

  4. COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP COORDINATING COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP: • PLANNING AND SUPPORT STAFFS • SPECIFICALLY DESIGNATED TECHNICAL REPRESENTATIVES STEERING COMMITTEE MEMBERSHIP • TASK FORCE MANAGER • NETWORK ENGINEERING AND PLANNING • AOS FUNDAMENTAL PLANNING • AOS IMPLEMENTATION - • FUTURE TECHNOLOGY - • COMPUTER OPERATIONS • DATA COMMUNICATIONS PLANNING V • CURRENT PLANNING & TECHNICAL SUPPORT • TECHNICAL CONSULTANTS, COOPERS & LYBRAND

  5. TASK FORCE PURPOSE • THE TASK FORCE HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED TO: • COMPLETE TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC EVALUATIONS OF THE ADVANCED OFFICE SYSTEMS (AOS) AND LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN) SERVING ARRANGEMENT WITHIN 60 DAYS • COMPARE THE S SERVING ARRANGEMENT WITH INDUSTRY AND TECHNOLOGY TRENDS • IDENTIFY EARLY IMPLEMENTATION TECHNICAL PROBLEMS AND ISSUES TO BE ADDRESSED COORDINATE RESOLUTION ACTIVITIES • COMMUNICATE DATA COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK PERFORMANCE IMPROVEMENT ACTIVITIES AND PROBLEM STATUS • PROMOTE TEAM EFFECTIVENESS • IDENTIFY A SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT FOR DATA COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK SERVICES


  6. THE TASK FORCE WILL PROVIDE: • • CAPITAL AND EXPENSE COST DATA, ONE-TIMEAND RECURRING FOR EACH COMPONENT AND FACILITY PROVIDED, PER USER AND IN TOTAL • • A TECHNICAL ASSESSMENT OF THE ISC AND LAN SERVING ARRANGEMENT AND ITS SUITABILITY FOR CURRENT APPLICATION AND COMPATIBILITY WITH FUTURE TECHNOLOGY • DEPLOYMENT STRATEGY FOR THE DATA COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK: • STOP NOW, • CAP AT SOME FUTURE (IDENTIFIED) POINT, OR • DEPLOY FOR ALL OF COMPANY

  7. TASK FORCE PRODUCT (Con’t) • A PLAN FOR A SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT FOR THE USER FOR ALL DCN “SYSTEM’ NEEDS - FOR INITIAL MOVE-IN AND ONGOING OCCUPANCY • VERIFICATION THAT THE ISC AND THE LAN SERVING ARRANGEMENT ALIGN WITH TECHNOLOGY TRENDS • AN INDUSTRY SCAN OF TECHNOLOGY USED BY OTHER MAJOR CORPORATIONS • INSIGHT INTO THE NEXT STEPS NECESSARY IN THE CREATION OF A FUNDAMENTAL PLAN FOR ADVANCED OFFICE SYSTEMS

  8. ASSESSMENT OF TECHNICAL SUITABILITY OF INITIAL ARCHITECTURE & DEPLOYMENT STRATEGY • INITIAL SERVING ARRANGEMENT • 9-85 NETWORK SERVING ARRANGEMENT • RECOMMENDED NETWORK SERVING ARRANGEMENT • RECOMMENDED USER SERVICES ARRANGEMENT • PROPOSED AOS DEPLOYMENT ARRANGEMENT

  9. INITIAL SERVING ARRANGEMENT

  10. 9-85 NETWORK SERVING ARRANGEMENT DATA CENTER • GENERAL ARCHITECTURE APPROACH IS WORKABLE • NEEDS TUNING

  11. Recommended Network Serving Arrangement • BETTER PERFORMANCE FOR NATIVE TERMINALS • LOWER COST FOR: NETWORK ($1,360.000)

  12. Recommended User Services Arrangement • IMPROVED LAN PERFORMANCE & REDUCED USER RESPONSE TIME • FUTURE REDUCTION IN COST OF SUPPORTING PRODUCTION WORD PROCESSING ($800.000)

  13. Proposed AOS Deployment Arrangement

  14. OTHER TASK FORCE PRODUCTS • ANALYZE CAPACITY AND PERFORMANCE OF LAN AND AOS -- JOINT DG JOINT DG/DCA/UB PRELIMINARY STUDY JUST COMPLETED • DEFINE SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT FOR USERS SERVICE QUALITY --NORTH • COMPARE RECOMMENDED ARCHITECTURE TO INDUSTRY TRENDS RECOMMENDED ARCHITECTURE IS COMPATIBLE • OBTAIN INSIGHT INTO STRATEGY FOR COMPANY-WIDE AOS AND NETWORK -- INTER-BUILDING ECHOPLEXING NOT ECONOMICAL -- NUMBER OF MINICOMPUTERS A MAJOR CONCERN -- X.400 VS. IBM DIA/DCA FOR AOS INTERCOMMUNICATIONS

  15. ECONOMIC ANALYSIS CAPITAL COSTS Expenditures as of 7/20/85 $ Projected completion using:“Initial Serving Arrangement” $ Projected completion using:“Recommended Serving Arrangement” $ Savings due to implementation of Recommendations $ 2,200,000

  16. ECONOMIC ANALYSIS COST PER USER One Time Capital $5,900 Recurring Annual Expenditures: LAN 836* ISC 427 $1,263 BEP: 1.3 years * Includes $510 per user for DNTC

  17. ARCHITECTURE • USE LAN IN FOR GENERAL DATA COMMUNICATION CONNECTIVITY • LIMIT DCA DEPLOYMENT TO EMULATION • EMPLOY MORE THAN ONE AOS -- AFFILIATED: OPERATIONAL SYSTEM -- UNAFFILIATED: PROFS OR CEO -- PROVIDE INTER-SYSTEM COMMUNICATION • MOVE TOWARD LOCAL INTELLIGENCE -- DEPLOY MICROS FOR PRODUCTION TYPING -- LIMIT CHARACTER ECHOING OVER NETWORK • LIMIT DEVICE TYPES SUPPORTED BY USERS • LIMIT SOFTWARE DEPLOYED ON DATA GENERAL
