    Classification of computer communication networks often depends upon the point of view and background of the person doing the classifying. Network designers, for example, tend to categorize the network according to its switching functioc–rcuit switching, message switch-or packet switching. Managers, who are occupied with economic considerations, look at the topological aspects of a network a... View full abstract»

    The advent of remote terminal access to computer systems, especially as provided by computer networks, has created a marketplace in which computer services rather than computer systems are being sold. And along with that marketplace has come the need for a way to compare and evaluate computer services. This paper presents a methodology for designing and analyzing computer service comparison experi... View full abstract»

    As computer networks are increasingly put into use, the organizations they serve are becoming increasingly concerned about data and network reliability and availability. Until recently, little emphasis was placed on making computer software reliable (except in military and communications applications), and little consideration was given to enhancing computer network reliability and availability.

    Kyoto University has developed a laboratory computer network that demonstrates an easy yet versatile way of accessing several kinds of computers from a single, small-scale computer. Known as "Labolink,"1,2the network is designed to support laboratory research and education. Unlike the RIG System, another university network reported on recently,3Labolink required no modificati...

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (2689 KB)

    Communication networks for digital data transmission can be classified as either circuit switched, message switched, or packet switched. In circuit-switched networks, a direct communication link is established between two users by closing a sequence of switches at appropriate network node points. The message is then transmitted continuously as is done, for example, in the national telephone networ... View full abstract»

    Productivity is the driving force of the economic growth that leads to improved living standards. However, if the United States continues the past pattern of 2% productivity growth per year, the gross national product per capita will grow at only 2.5% per year and unemployment will still be at 5.7% in 1990. On the other hand, a single percentage point increase in productivity–from 2% to 3%&#... View full abstract»
