    • World Wide Online System-Replacement (WWOLS-R)
      • Network management tool used for provisioning data for the Defense Information Systems Network (DISN)
      • DISA telecommunications asset database
      • Contains data on circuits, trunks, and links that comprise the DISN
    • Intelligent Integrated Information for Telecommunications (I3Tel)
      • Database management tools used for provisioning data (current status and customer circuit requirements) for the ATM network (both black and red sides)
      • Mostly written in Microsoft Access
    • Resources Integrated Management System (RIMS)
      • Multiple copies of the database designed for specific purposes; not connected nor synchronized
      • Example: RIMS 6.0 for Promina legacy and data circuits; RIMS-O for Optical Related circuits

      • U.S. - Level 1
      • Nebraska – Level 2
      • STRATCOM HQ – Level 3
  • Events occurring within STRATCOM HQ recorded in local TMS by ITCC contractor are also monitored and entered into GADSS depending on impact
  • INMS alarming circuits and REMEDY tracking numbers are included with GADSS events as applicable
event analysis flow
Event Analysis Flow
  • Analysis performed on events entered into GADSS

    • Reviewed in context of:
      • Other related reported outages
      • Previous outages if this is network system component
  • Analysis documented within GADSS
    • Related events linked within GADSS event entries
  • Reports generated and sent to POCs recorded in GADSS
  • Status of outage is monitored and changes are recorded in original GADSS event entry
gadss to skiweb event flow
