Development of the Alohanet Invited Paper

  title={Development of the Alohanet Invited Paper},
  author={N. Abramson},
-The development of the ALOHA system packet broadcasting network at the University of Hawaii illustrates a number of general principles about the relationship between information theory and the design of real information systems. An anecdotal account is given of the development of the ALOHA system, emphasizing the interaction of the theory and the design of the experimental network. In addition, some preliminary results are described on the comparison of ALOHA channels and spread spectrum… Expand

THE ALOHA SYSTEM: another alternative for computer communications
A remote-access computer system under development as part of a research program to investigate the use of radio communications for computer-computer and console-computer links and a novel form of random-access radio communications developed for use within THE ALOHA SYSTEM is described. Expand
ALOHA packet system with and without slots and capture
Roberts investigates methods of increasing the effective channel capacity of such a channel and proposes to consider the channel to be slotted into segments of time whose duration is equal to the packet transmission time, and to require the devices to begin a packet transmission at the beginning of a time slot.

Packet Communication
This report analyzes users of computers in digital communication systems and examines structures for organizing computers in highly communicative environments and develops a theory of packet communication. Expand
The Throughput of Packet Broadcasting Channels
This paper provides a unified presentation of packet broadcasting theory, derived some properties of power-limited packet broadcasting channels, showing that the throughput of such channels can approach that of equivalent point-to-point channels. Expand
