Abstract:

This report is the second part of a two-part study on the properties of computer communication protocols. It is concerned primarily with the future development of protocols, particularly a projection of the state of the art of protocols of different levels. The packet switching network is explained, and the possible future developments in low-level protocols are discussed, including end-to-end protocols and user-level protocols that support functions such as file transfer and remote job entry.
