Abstract:

The nationwide ARPA Network is composed of different host computers at geographically separated sites that are interconnected by small, standardized computers IMPs and 50K-bit communication lines leased from the common carriers. Of primary concern are the fundamental intercommunication problems inherent in the marriage of autonomous hardware and software. This paper discusses one recent approach for providing a kind of data transformations in a way that is transparent to the terminals and programs involved.
