There are many reasons for establishing a network which allows many computers to communicate with each other to interchange and execute programs or data. The definition of a network within this paper will always be that of a network between computers, not including the network of typewriter consoles surrounding each computer. Attempts at computer networks have been made in the past; however, the usual motivation has been either load sharing or interpersonal message handling. Three other more… 
Procedures and standards for inter-computer communications
In recent years there has been considerable discussion on computer communication networks, information service systems and the computer utility, pointing to the widening need for reliable computer-to-computer communications.
The interface message processor for the ARPA computer network
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.
An interactive network of time-sharing computers
The design and implementation of an experimental interactive time-sharing network of computers created as a joint effort by Carnegie-Mellon University, Princeton University and the Research Division of IBM are described.
Computer communication network design: experience with theory and practice
The ARPA Network (ARPANET) project brought together many individuals with diverse backgrounds, philosophies, and technical approaches from the fields of computer science, communication theory,
The Arpanet and computer networks
The revolution in communications started with an experiment in computer networking, the ARPANET, and grew into a communications revolution called packet switching, where virtually all the world is linked by packet switched communications service so that any terminal can access almost any computer in the world.
Analytic and simulation methods in computer network design
The Seventies are here and so are computer networks! The time sharing industry dominated the Sixties and it appears that computer networks will play a similar role in the Seventies. The need has now
Two Early Interactive Computer Network Experiments
Two early networking experiments joined a time-sharing computer at the System Development Corporation with systems at the Stanford Research Institute briefly in 1963 and at the MIT Lincoln Laboratory
A model for the local area of a data communication network objectives and hardware organization
The experimental data communication network being implemented at the National Physical Laboratory will act as a model of the 'local area' network assumed, but never analysed in detail, in the NPL proposal for a possible National Data Communication System.

Two early networking experiments joined a time-sharing computer at the System Development Corporation with systems at the Stanford Research Institute briefly in 1963 and at MIT Lincoln Laboratory in 1966-1967 and included experiments with the interactive use of remote programs.
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.


Toward a cooperative network of time-shared computers
Incompatible machines represent an old problem in the computer field and programs developed at one installation are not available to users of other installations.

The amount of logically irrelevent engineering detail inherent in the design and construction of a computer system is great, but the number of different systems that can be put into use by any one group of workers is small.
