Delay-Tolerant Networking Architecture
This document describes an architecture that addresses a variety of problems with internetworks having operational and performance characteristics that make conventional (Internet-like) networking approaches either unworkable or impractical.
A brief history of the internet
This paper is being re-published in ACM SIGCOMM Computer Communication Review because of its historic import and remains one of the most accurate renderings of the early period of development available.
Delay-tolerant networking: an approach to interplanetary Internet
This work identifies three fundamental principles that would underlie a delay-tolerant networking (DTN) architecture and describes the main structural elements of that architecture, centered on a new end-to-end overlay network protocol called Bundling.
A protocol for packet network intercommunication
A protocol that supports the sharing of resources that exist in different packet switching networks is presented. The protocol provides for variation in individual network packet sizes, transmission
Casting the Net: From ARPANET to INTERNET and Beyond
This resource, which helps you to cast the net from arpanet to internet and beyond PDF, is available at the online library.
The past and future history of the Internet
The Internet today is a widespread information infrastructure, the initial prototype of what is often called the National Information Infrastructure, whose influence reaches not only to the technical fields of computer communications but throughout society as the authors move toward increasing use of online tools to accomplish electronic commerce, information acquisition, and community operations.
Interplanetary internet (ipn): architectural definition
This document describes the Interplanetary Internet: a communication system to provide Internet-like services across interplanetary distances in support of deep space exploration. Our approach, which
