    The early successes of computer networks in the mid-1970's made it apparent that to utilize the full potential of computer networks, international standards would be required. In 1977, the International Standards Organization (ISO) initiated work on Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) to address these requirements. This paper briefly describes the OSI Reference Model. The OSI Reference Model is the... View full abstract»

    Early in the development of OSI, it was recognized that formal description techniques (FDT's) would be required to accomplish the goals of OSI. This paper is a brief history and a report on the status of the work of ISO/TC97/SC16/WG1 ad hoc Group on Formal Description Techniques. The group comprises three subgroups: the first working on architectural concepts; the second, on an FDT based on extend... View full abstract»
