NACC and the Department of Energy (DOE) implemented a Headquarters and nation-wide secure and non-secure Management Information Center (MIC). The MIC was designed to automate enterprise monitoring and management of voice network, data network, computer, application, environmental and multi-media systems and services requirements. The network management information platform, which provided a systems backbone for the MIC was the DOE, network (DOE/NET) platform.
NACC activities included installation of the basic DOE/NET platform and associated software on the target host and verification of standard basic platform functions. A test and acceptance were performed to establish functionality. Additional activities included
LAN INTERFACE: After installation the next step was integration of one of the major domains of the MIC with the DOE/NET platform. In order to accomplish the integration of the DOE/NET platform with the LAN Domain, an interface was established to allow DOE/NET to receive, record, display and report the current status of Optivity/SNMP managed devices.
CONFIGURATION OF DEVICES: THE DOE/NET platform was configured to view devices (status objects) that corresponded to the existing topology of the DOE management system. The effort also included the integration of map and plant layout views into the configured system.
MAINFRAME INTERFACE NACC began the development of the Mainframe Domain interface, which consisted of IBM and HP systems distributed throughout the Department of Energy. As was the case with the LAN Domain interface, the integration effort allowed the DOE/NET platform to receive, record, display, and report the current status of the Mainframe Domain.
WIDE AREA NETWORK DOMAIN (WAN Domain): Consisted of network linking together networks between DOE Washington metropolitan facilities and facilities nation-wide.
INFORMATION EXCHANGE DOMAIN (IX Domain): Was designed to provide switched voice, switched data, modem pooling, facsimile, host computer access, WAN, voice messaging capabilities for DOE organizations at numerous sites.
