Packet broadcasting is a technique whereby data is sent from one node in a net to another by attaching address information to the data to form a packet---typically from 30 to 1000 bits in length. The packet is then broadcast over a communication channel which is shared by a large number of nodes in the net; as the packet is received by these nodes the address is scanned and the packet is accepted by the proper addressee (or addressees) and ignored by the others. The physical communication… Expand
Advances in packet radio technology
TLDR
Various aspects of spread spectrum transmission in the network environment are identified and the experience with a testbed network in the San Francisco Bay area is discussed. Expand
Functions and structure of a packet radio station
TLDR
An experimental testbed for packet radio concepts is now under construction at the Stanford Research Institute, Palo Alto, California to provide experimental validation of theoretical models and simulation predictions. Expand
Ethernet: distributed packet switching for local computer networks
TLDR
The design principles and implementation are described based on experience with an operating Ethernet of 100 nodes along a kilometer of coaxial cable and a model for estimating performance under heavy loads and a packet protocol for error controlled communication are included for completeness.

Packet Switching in Radio Channels: Part I - Carrier Sense Multiple-Access Modes and Their Throughput-Delay Characteristics
TLDR
Two protocols are described for CSMA and their throughput-delay characteristics are given and results show the large advantage CSMA provides as compared to the random ALOHA access modes. Expand
A model for local/mobile radio communications with variable length packets
TLDR
The authors present an analysis of the throughput of a local/mobile radio communications system using the ALOHA random access protocol with variable length packets and it is shown that the maximum throughput of the system is considerably higher than that of a conventional AlOHA system. Expand
Random access techniques for data transmission over packet-switched radio channels
TLDR
There is an increasing demand for access to data processing and storage facilities from interactive terminals, point-of-sales terminals, real-time monitoring terminals, hand-held personal terminals, etc. Expand

TLDR
An analytic model is developed and the main result is the moment generating function of the distributed queue size (number of ready users) and mean value formulas for message delay and channel assignment delay are derived. Expand
Multiaccess Model for Packet Switching with a Satellite Having Processing Capability: Delay Analysis
TLDR
This paper analyzes the queueing and scheduling delays of the multiaccess model for satellite packet switching using an M/D/N queue and emplys a round-robin scheduling assignment algorithm, and results indicate that random transmission improves the queues performance. Expand
