Abstract:

The document describes a computation oriented communications network where nodes representing computing centers and links are communication ties such as hard lines, microwave, or satellite. The parameters in such a network include the properties of hardware and software computation, communication links, and message traffic across the network. Such a system represents several government existing and proposed networks. The purpose of such a network is that reliability can be increased by providing rapidly accessed alternative centers and that cost effectiveness is gained through more efficient use of computer resources.
