    Modeling and performance prediction are becoming increasingly important issues in the design and operation of computer communications systems. Complexities in their configuration and sophistications in resource sharing found in today's computer communications demand our intensive effort to enhance the modeling capability. The present paper is intended to review the state of affairs of analytic met... View full abstract»

    An algorithm is defined for establishing routing tables in the individual nodes of a data network. The routing table at a nodeispecifies, for each other nodej, what fraction of the traffic destined for nodejshould leave nodeion each of the links emanating from nodei. The algorithm is applied independently at each node and successively updates ... View full abstract»

    The speed at which large files can travel across a computer network is an important performance measure of that network. In this paper we examine the achievable sustained throughput in the ARPANET. Our point of departure is to describe the procedures used for controlling the flow of long messages (multipacket messages) and to identify the limitations that these procedures place on the throughput. ...

    The last few years have witnessed the intensive growth of computer communication networks. The need for nationwide and multination computer communication systems brought about the development of packet-switching networks such as the ARPANET. In this paper we examine a model for computer-to-computer communication via a satellite link. In each network, a single node, the satellite communication conc... View full abstract»

    We develop here an approximate method for the design and performance prediction of a multiaccess communication system which employs the ALOHA packet-switching technique. Our model is based on the use of a diffusion process approximation of an ALOHAlike system (with or without time-slotting). A simple closed-form solution for the variableQ(t), a variant of the number of backlog messages ... View full abstract»

    Basic analytical models for problems of dynamic and quasi-static routing in data-communication networks are introduced. The models are intended to handle the quantities of interest in an algorithmic form, and as such require only a minimal number of assumptions. Control and estimation methods are used to construct algorithms for the solution of the routing problem. View full abstract»

    A cost-effective structure for a large network is a multilevel hierarchy consisting of a backbone network and a family of local access networks. The backbone network is generally a distributed network, while the local access networks are typically centralized systems. In special cases, the network may consist primarily of either centralized or distributed portions. This paper discusses topological... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (768 KB)

    A multiaccess model for packet switching with a satellite having the capability of interrogating the uplink header and creating the downlink header is proposed. The satellite broadcasts slot assignments, based on the users' reported queue status, to the users for transmission in the next frame. With the protocols being done at both the earth stations and at the satellite, the proposed multiaccess ... View full abstract»

    The problem of data transmission in a network environment involves the design of a communication subnetwork. Recently, significant progress has been made in this technology, and in this article we survey the modeling, analysis, and design of such computercommunication networks. Most of the design methodology presented has been developed with the packet-switched Advanced Research Projects Agency Ne... View full abstract»

    This paper considers a mixed-media packet-switched computer communication network which consists of a low-delay terrestrial store-and-forward subnet combined with a low-cost high-bandwidth satellite subnet. We show how to route traffic via ground and/or satellite links by means of static, deterministic procedures and assign capacities to channels subject to a given linear cost such that the networ...

    Packet broadcasting is a form of data communications architecture which can combine the features of packet switching with those of broadcast channels for data communication networks. Much of the basic theory of packet broadcasting has been presented as a byproduct in a sequence of papers with a distinctly practical emphasis. In this paper we provide a unified presentation of packet broadcasting th... View full abstract»

    In any network where a large number of widely dispersed "users" share a limited number of "resources," the strategy for access will play a large part in determining the cost and performance of the network. In this paper we consider a topological design aspect of the access problem. In particular, we consider the problem of locating "access facilities," or concentration points, to obtain an economi...

    This paper discusses the services provided by a systems network architecture (SNA) network and design aspects related to these services. Both the basic transmission services and higher level network services are discussed. The first section describes the structure of SNA. The second section describes SNA's transmission services and sketches in the other aspects of SNA's structure. The next section... View full abstract»

    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 context of a single-hop system using off-the-shelf RF equipment with all terminals within line of sight of the central station. The packet radio network described in this paper is 1) an extension of the basic... View full abstract»
