The interface message processor for the ARPA computer network
The ARPA Network will initially interconnect many dissimilar computers at ten ARPA-supported research centers with 50-kilobit common-carrier circuits, but the network may be extended to include many other locations and circuits of higher bandwidth.
The terminal IMP for the ARPA computer network
A little over three years ago the Advanced Research Projects Agency began implementation of an entirely new venture in computer communications: a network that would allow for the interconnection, via common-carrier circuits, of dissimilar computers at widely separated, ARPA-sponsored research centers.
Improvements in the design and performance of the ARPA network
In late 1968 the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense (ARPA) embarked on the implementation of a new type of computer network which would interconnect, via common-carrier
The ARPA Network
Issues in packet switching network design
Several of the key design choices that must be made in specifying a packetswitching network are identified and some insight is provided in each area.
A new minicomputer/multiprocessor for the ARPA network
Since the early years of the digital computer era, there has been a continuing attempt to gain processing power by organizing hardware processors so as to achieve some form of parallel operation. One
Pluribus: a reliable multiprocessor
As computer technology has evolved, system architects have continually sought new ways to exploit the decreasing costs of system components to gain increased operating power through parallelism and/or to gain increases in system reliability through redundancy.
Papers presented at the December 1-3, 1959, eastern joint IRE-AIEE-ACM computer conference
For some time it has been customary to hear complaints about the limited value of large technical conferences, but I represent a group of people who have worked assiduously to arrange this affair and believe that many of us are here because of a continued enthusiasm in the possibilities of the computer.
Interface Message Processors for the ARPA Computer Network
Abstract : The basic function of the IMP computer network is to allow large existing time-shared (Host) computers with different system configurations to communicate with each other. Each IMP
