    Our view is that people (that is, programmers and general computer users) tend to work together in small groups, where information and resources are shared freely within a group. Most interactions occur within the group (called a cluster)-sending messages, exchanging data, sharing a printer. Communication outside the cluster-sending mail to someone in another group or using a large number cruncher... View full abstract»

    A desktop personal computer can be greatly extended in usefulness by attaching it to a local area network and implementing a full set of network protocols, just as one might provide for a mainframe computer. Such protocols are a set of tools that allow the desktop computer not just to access data elsewhere, but to participate in the computing milieu much more intensely. There are two challenges to...

    The reduction in cost of computer processing and storage that led to personal computers has stimulated a need for comparable reduction in telecommunication costs to connect distributed personal computers to central computer facilities. A reexamination of the underlying technical options open to terrestrial and satellite telecommunications alternatives illustrates the advantages of satellite networ... View full abstract»

    A new type of information system is described that combines personal computers, broadcast data communication, and bidirectional communication. The system is designed to use broadcast communication whenever possible to deliver information to personal computers, which are used for data storage, indexing, and retrieval. This paper starts with an overview of the system, and then discuss the problem of... View full abstract»

    This paper surveys some of the issues involved in building useful distributed systems involving PC's and hosts. Alternative communications techniques for micro-mainframe communication are compared. The point of view is presented that the PC user should be provided with a unified view of the heterogeneous distributed system to which he is connected. The proposed method is to formalize the notion of... View full abstract»

    This paper describes recent developments in geosynchronous satellite communication with special emphasis on data communication using small inexpensive Earth stations (small-Earth stations or microstations). Recent innovations in design, impacts of regulatory codes and decisions, and an illustrative system design example are all examined. Attention is directed to systems using radio frequency (RF) ...

    During the past several years there has been much activity in the development of networking hardware and software for personal computers. At the same time the amateur radio community has been equally active in the development of networking equipment and procedures especially suited for radio circuits. Although the initial efforts have been with terrestrial circuits, experimentation with and develo... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses SNA/LEN, a possible extension of Systems Network Architecture intended to allow peer, dynamic, and easy to use networking functions for a variety of node sizes down to and including the new generation of personal computers. After reviewing the special requirements posed by small systems and the need for including them as equal partners in networks, the LEN architecture is desc... View full abstract»

    Communication from terminals to other terminals and to computing service systems has been an important aspect of data communications since the early 1960's. When personal computers arrived on the scene, in the 1970's, the use of telephone facilities and modems for communications was a natural extension of existing technology. Now, however, many modems have "intelligence" and can be controlled from... View full abstract»

    Broad-band technology provides several advantages for personal computer local area networks (PC LAN's) including mature readily available transmission technology, large total bandwidth, support for multiple services, and cost-effective expansion from very small to very large systems. This paper presents an overview of basic broad-band technology, hardware, software, and protocols needed for PC LAN... View full abstract»
