Abstract : This thesis contains development of a conceptual framework for an Integrated Services Digital Network (ISDN) and relates ISDN concepts to non-tactical Department of Defense (DoD) communications applications. The conceptual framework developed is non-technical and is intended to provide general management with an introduction to the ISDN. An existing model communications system, Japan's Information Network System (INS), which exhibits characteristics of ISDN, is also discussed in terms of the conceptual framework developed. General ISDN concepts are also related to DoD applications. The Defense Data Network (DDN) is presented as a candidate network on which a potential military ISDN could be based. Keywords include: Integrated services digital network; ISDN; Integrated digital network; IDN; Information network system; and INS.
