1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A three part series examining the ins and outs of one of the most volatile industries: the Internet. This first episode examines how the seeds of the Internet were planted by Sputnik. In a reaction to Russia's leap ahead in technology, the Pentagon developed a new agency called ARPA. ARPAnet was created to connect computer researchers at universities across the nation. In nine months flat, the technology was invented, built and installed
The Aloha System : another alternative for computer communications by Norman Abramson( Book )

4 editions published between 1970 and 1972 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 1968 the University of Hawaii began work on a research program to investigate the use of radio communications for computer-computer and console-computer links. The report describes a remote-access computer system - THE ALOHA SYSTEM - under development as part of that research program and discusses some advantages of radio communications over conventional wire communications for interactive users of a large computer system. An analysis of the random access communication method used in THE ALOHA SYSTEM is provided and it is shown that the maximum number of interactive users who can be supported by the system is about 160
Nerds 2.0.1 a brief history of the Internet( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A three part series examining the ins and outs of one of the most volatile industries: the Internet. This second episode examines the advent of the PC and the need to connect them all to a network. But first someone had to figure out how to do it. That guy was Bob Metcalfe, founder of 3Com. As the market for networking evolved the battle began in earnest; 3Com, Sun, Novell, Cisco and Microsoft entered the market creating a civil war and billion-dollar partnerships
Optical data processing by Arnold Roy Shulman( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on optical data processing for missile guidance and robotics is described. Our major emphasis is pattern recognition using feature extraction (Fourier coefficients, moments and chord features) and correlation (using distortion-invariant synthetic discriminant function matched spatial filters). All research in pattern recognition concerns multi-class distortion-invariant pattern recognition. Recent research includes: different feature extraction post-processors, new algorithms to extract distortion parameters from chord features and a hierarchical moment feature processor for distortion parameter estimation. Extensive database tests of moments and synthetic discriminant functions have been performed. Component research has addressed AO cells with performance measures and detector effects described. Matrix-vector research includes: error source analysis, a new quadratic matrix algorithm, and initial laboratory system results with attention to the electronic support system and the laboratory system fabrication.

Satellite packet broadcasting to very small earth stations by Norman Abramson( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we analyze the thruput of an ALOHA channel when compared to that of a conventional point-to-point channel of the same average power. This analysis is of interest in the case of a satellite information system employing thousands of small earth stations. For a satellite system the fundamental limitation in the downlink is the average power available in the satellite transponder rather than the peak power. Our results show that in the limit of large numbers of small earth stations the ALOHA thruput approaches 100% of the point-to-point capacity. This the multiple access capability and the complete connectivity (in the topological sense) of an ALOHA channel can be obtained at no price in average thruput. Furthermore, since our results suggest the use of higher peak power in the satellite transponder (while the average power is kept constant) the small earth stations may use smaller antennas and simpler receivers and moderms than would be necessary in a conventional system.

ALOHA Packet Broadcasting - A Retrospect by University of Hawaii. Aloha System( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we discuss the lessons learned in the design and implementation of the ALOHANET, a packet broadcasting radio network in operation at the University of Hawaii since 1970. The major part of the paper consists of a detailed discussion of the communications protocol choices that have evolved since the initial stages of the design of ALOHANET. Choices concerning the design of the radio communication subsystem are then examined, followed by an evolutionary view of the important impact that microcomputer technology has had on the user interface design and resulting system capabilities. The concluding section summarizes our present views with respect to the basic system configuration and properties of packet broadcasting networks. (Author)
The Theory of Packet Broadcasting by Norman Abramson( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 theory. In Section 2 we introduce the theory of packet broadcasting data networks. In Section 3 we provide some theoretical results dealing with the performance of a packet broadcasting network when the users of the network have a variety of data rates. In Section 4 we deal with packet broadcasting networks distributed in space and in Section 5 we derive some properties of power limited packet broadcasting channels, showing that the thruput of such channels can approach that of equivalent point-to-point channels.

PACKET SWITCHING WITH SATELLITES by Norman Abramson( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The beginning of the 1970's has witnessed the establishment of new forms of computer-communication networks, with clear advantages over the voice oriented point-to-point, channel switched networks of the 1960's. The paper describes some of the most important properties of these new networks -- packet switching, bilateral broadcasting and burst random access capabilities. The advent of easily available, inexpensive satellite communications gives added importance to these properties and promises added capabilities for computer-communication networks of the future. The paper provides a theoretical framework from which can be derived the capacity, delay and average power of these new forms of communication. Finally it describes how these forms of communication might be employed in some of the planned US domestic satellite systems to provide a public packet switched service. (Author)

Bandwidth and spectra of phase- and frequencymodulated waves by Stanford University( Book )

2 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The spectrum of a cosine angle-modulated by a Gaussian random process (GRP) of (almost) arbitrary spectrum is investigated. Such a GRP provides a convenient model for voice signals, TV signals, and other types of complex communication signals. A simple closed form expression for the bandwidth of the modulated signal in terms of the bandwidth of the modulating signal is found. A general expansion for the shape of the spectrum of the modulated cosine is derived. In addition to reducing, in certain limiting situations, to known results, this expansion provides a practical means of obtaining the spectrum in intermediate cases. Examples are presented showing the spectrum of a cosine modulated by (1) a lowpass GRP with rectangular spectrum, and (2) a bandpass GRP of Gaussian spectrum. (Author)
