Considering the urgency of the need for standards which would allow constitution of heterogeneous computer networks, ISO created a new subcommittee for "Open Systems Interconnection" (ISO/ TC97/SC 16) in 1977. The first priority of subcommittee 16 was to develop an architecture for open systems interconnection which could serve as a framework for the definition of standard protocols. As a result of 18 months of studies and discussions, SC16 adopted a layered architecture comprising seven layers… 
The ISO Reference Model of Open Systems Interconnection: A first tutorial
TLDR
The documents assume an environment of systems which make themselves “open” to the exchange of data with other systems by adhering to a well-defined set of standard procedures for communication.

    MILCOM 1987 - IEEE Military Communications Conference - Crisis Communications: The Promise and Reality
  • 1987
TLDR
The basic need for internet gateways in such a system to achieve interoperability is described and a recommendation is made for further research into the specification and demonstration of internet Gateways in distributed C3 environments.
Multilevel Internetworking Gateways: Architecture and Applications
TLDR
Architectural issues faced in the design and implementation of Bridge Communications' gateway products are explored to illustrate a few types of gateway services and their specific architectural requirements.
A Reference Model and Architecture for Future Computer Networks
TLDR
This dissertation presents the proposed clean-slate Concern-Oriented Reference Model (CORM) for architecting future computer networks, a pioneering attempt within the network realm that refutes the long endorsed concept of layering, intrinsically accounts for emergent behavior, and ensures system integrity and stability.
A Survey of Computer Network Communication Protocols and Reference Models
TLDR
The rationale for the overwhelming acceptability of TCP/IP reference model over the OSI model for computer network data communication is established.
Mapping Network Protocols to Layers of the OSI Model
TLDR
This paper attempts to shed light on the issue by claiming that there are indeed three different sets of criteria for deciding which OSI layer governs what protocol, and describes them, shows how their amalgamation leads to consistency problems, and offers an outline of what OSIlayer placement of common protocols they suggest if they are being followed consistently.
Internet of Satellites (IoSat): Analysis of Network Models and Routing Protocol Requirements
TLDR
This paper details the IoSat paradigm, but it also analyses the different satellite network models and evaluates the routing protocol candidates that could be used to implement the Iosat paradigm.

TLDR
The combination of VT and Estelle represents ISO's effort toward implementing the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model.
A System Architecture for Evolving Protocol Stacks (Invited Paper)
TLDR
This work introduces a network architecture that aims to be versatile enough to serve as a foundation for the future Internet and embeds the concept of modularity at all levels of the architecture.
