This paper introduces the wide range of technical, legal, and political issues associated with interconnection of packet-switched data communication networks. [...] Key Method The CCITT X.25/ X.75 packet-network interface recommendations are evoluated in terms of their applicability to network interconnection. Alternatives such as datagram operation and general host gateways are compared with the virtual circuit methods. Some Observations on the regulatory aspects of interconnection are offered and the paper…Expand

TLDR
Two leading alternatives have been developed by the DARPA Internet community and by the CCITT for public data networks, but providing interoperability between them is still a problem. Expand
Alternatives for interconnection of public packet switching data networks
TLDR
Two major factors in determining the merits of different network interconnection approaches are focused on, and the X.75 approach to a few alternatives in each of these areas are compared. Expand
Design principles for network interconnection
TLDR
This paper shows that similar structuring techniques, namely multiplexing, switching, cascading, wrapping and layering, can be applied, and that a set of simple principles are derived which facilitate greatly the design of the interconnection of computer networks. Expand
Routing, Flow, and Congestion Control in the Datapac Network
TLDR
This paper characterizes the virtual circuit and datagram communications layer of Datapac and presents the routing, flow, and congestion control techniques currently in place for these two layers. Expand
Internetwork Protocol Approaches
TLDR
The motivation for interconnecting networks is to provide one or more consistent services to the set of users of the interconnected networks and the role of internetwork protocols is discussed. Expand
An approach for interconnecting SNA and XNS Networks
Interest in computer internetworking has resulted from the proliferation of wide area and local area networks. The CCITT, DARPA/DoD, and ISO/ECMA internetworking models, which have become widelyExpand

A Common Transport Based Approach to Network Interconnection
TLDR
The paper proposes an interworking model based on interface elements known as gateways, the primary criterian of the model being providing transparent transport end-to-end connections between users of the networks being interconnected. Expand
The Cypress Network : A Low-Cost Internet Connection Technology
An internet consists of multiple interconnected data communication networks that function like a single, large packet switching network. Standard internet communication protocols hide details of theExpand
Transport Protocol Performance over Concatenated Local Area and Satellite Networks
TLDR
This paper considers the interconnection of a Cambridge Ring with the narrow-band satellite network SATNET, comparing the basic network characteristics and then considers the effects on internetworking protocol implementation strategies and the differing requirements for implementation tuning.

Interconnection of Computer Networks
TLDR
Techniques to implement internet addressing, routing, error recovery, and other necessary communication services on top of local network facilities appear feasible without demanding large changes to individual nets. Expand
Virtual circuits vs. datagrams: technical and political problems
TLDR
VC's and DG's are compared from the viewpoint of adapting customer systems to public networks, and the political implications of the carrier policy suggest that better boundaries be drawn up between carriers and data processing. Expand
Planned New Public Data Networks
TLDR
A brief overview is given of the status of planned public special data networks as at the end of 1975, and some line-switched data networks under development and a number of international ones are considered. Expand
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, transmissionExpand
The interface message processor for the ARPA computer network
TLDR
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. Expand
The terminal IMP for the ARPA computer network
TLDR
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.

Function-oriented protocols for the ARPA computer network
TLDR
It is now appropriate to review the development of protocols which have been constructed to promote particular substantive uses of the ARPANET, namely function-oriented protocols. Expand

Packet radio communications provides an effective way to interconnect fixed and mobile computer resources. The ALOHA System at the University of Hawaii first introduced this capability in the contextExpand
Flow Control in a Resource-Sharing Computer Network
TLDR
This paper examines in some detail the nature of the flow control required in the subnet and its relation to the host flow control and subnet performance. Expand
HOST-HOST communication protocol in the ARPA network
TLDR
The Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) Computer Network (hereafter referred to as the "ARPA network") is one of the most ambitious computer networks attempted to date, but no one node is in control of the network. Expand
