For many years, small groups of computers have been interconnected in various ways. Only recently, however, has the interaction of computers and communications become an important topic in its own right. In 1968, after considerable preliminary investigation and discussion, the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense (ARPA) embarked on the implementation of a new kind of nationwide computer interconnection known as the ARPA Network. This network will initially interconnect… 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.

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
Improvements in the design and performance of the ARPA network
In late 1968 the Advanced Research Projects Agency of the Department of Defense (ARPA) embarked on the implementation of a new type of computer network which would interconnect, via common-carrierExpand
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
