The ALOHA System, an experimental UHF radio computer communication network, was developed at the University of Hawaii, 1970-76. In this survey paper, we give a general overview of packet communication techniques applied to computer networks. Then we discuss the concept of packet broadcasting and give a short description of the ALOHANET. Next, a discussion of the application of ALOHA techniques to satellite communications is presented. Finally, a short survey of present-day research and…

Abstract : The report provides a status report and description of THE ALOHA SYSTEM research project at the University of Hawaii. THE ALOHA SYSTEM involves the analysis and construction of advanced
Advances in packet radio technology
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.
General purpose packet satellite networks
The use of satellite communication techniques to provide integrated data network and point-to-point and conference speech services is discussed and the class of Priority Oriented Demand Assignment (PODA) algorithms is defined and compared with other packet-oriented demand assignment algorithms.
ALOHA packet broadcasting: a retrospect
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
A study of multiaccess computer communications
The results of a study of multiaccess computer communications based on a model of the user-computer interactive process and on data that were collected from operating computer systems are presented.
Ethernet: distributed packet switching for local computer networks
The design principles and implementation are described, based on experience with an operating Ethernet of 100 nodes along a kilometer of coaxial cable, of a model for estimating performance under heavy loads and a packet protocol for error controlled communication.
