AbstractThe existing Mission Control and Computer Center at JPL will be replaced by the Space Flight Operations Center (SFOC). One part of the SFOC is the Local Area Network-Based Distribution System. The purpose of the Local Area Network (LAN) is to distribute the processed data among the various elements of the SFOC. The SFOC LAN will provide a robust subsystem that will support the Magellan launch configuration and future project adaptations with the following capabilities: * A proven cable medium (Ethernet) as the backbone for the entire network, with capability for migration to a fiber optics backbone in the future. * Choice of hardware components that are reliable, varied, and supported by companies that are following the growth path of the ISO model (OSI Standards). * Insure a reliable and maintainable network for SFOC-supported projects. * Accurate and detailed documentation of the LAN, valuable for fault isolation and future expansion of the network. * Proven network monitoring and maintenance tools.
