The dearth of products during FS period is credited with giving clone processor makers market foothold. After FS implodes there is mad rush to get products back into the pipelines. US regions forecast products As a result there was no accountability for US bad forecasts, promotions were based on forecasting what hdqtrs told them was strategic, while WT business people got fired for poor forecasting.
In the words of Steve Crocker, this was a seminal meeting. The attendees could only be but theoretical, as none of the lowest levels of communication had been developed yet.
They needed a transport layer or low-level communications platform to be able to build upon. It was important to meet beforehand, as the NWG "imagined all sorts of possibilities. These fresh thoughts from fresh minds help to incubate new ideas.
This wound up setting the precedent of a holding exchange meetings at each of the sites. Steve Crocker, describing the problems facing these networking pioneers, writes: Only later did we articulate the notion of building a layered set of protocols with general transport services on the bottom and multiple application- specific protocols on the top.
We struggled between a grand design and getting something working quickly. These languages were ahead of their time. The basic purpose was to form an on-the-fly description that would tell the receiving end how to understand the information that would be sent.
However, these first set of meetings were extremely abstract as neither ARPA nor the universities had deemed any official charter. The lack of a charter allowed the group to think broadly and openly however. This information provided the group some definite starting points to build from.
BBN was interested in the lowest level of making a reliable connection. The programmers from the host sites were interested in getting the hosts to communicate with each either via various higher level programs. He continues by writing in RFC that they constantly thought that, "a professional crew would show up eventually to take over the problems we were dealing with.
RFC The participants decided it was time to start recording their meetings in a consistent fashion. What resulted was a set of informal notes titled "Request for Comments.
The basic ground rules were that anyone could say anything and that nothing was official. And to emphasize the point, I labeled the notes "Request for Comments.
He describes how they wrestled with creation of the host-host protocols: Although we had a vision of the vast potential for intercomputer communication, designing usable protocols was another matter. A custom hardware interface and custom intrusion into the operating system was going to be required for anything we designed, and we anticipated serious difficulty at each of the sites.
We looked for existing abstractions to use. This first set of host protocols included a remote login for interactive use telnetand a way to copy files between remote hosts FTP. In Decemberwe met with Larry Roberts in Utah, [and he] made it abundantly clear that our first step was not big enough, and we went back to the drawing board.
Over the next few months we designed a symmetric host-host protocol, and we defined an abstract implementation of the protocol known as the Network Control Program.
The protocol itself was known blandly only as the host-host protocol. Along with the basic host-host protocol, we also envisioned a hierarchy of protocols, with Telnet, FTP and some splinter protocols as the first examples.
If we had only consulted the ancient mystics, we would have seen immediately that seven layers were required. The group became large enough around people that one meeting was held in conjunction with the Spring Joint Computer Conference in Atlantic City.
With the exception of one site that was completely down, the matrix was almost completely filled in, and we had reached a major milestone in connectivity. The initial approach taken involved an entity called a "Network Control Program" which would typically reside in the executive of a host, such that processes within a host would communicate with the network through this Network Control Program.
The primary function of the NCP is to establish connections, break connections, switch connections, and control flow. A layered approach was taken such that more complex procedures such as File Transfer Procedures were built on top of similar procedures in the host Network Control Program.origins of the Internet, tracing it back to a other objectives on top of the original the ARPANET, the name reflected its origin in the /5(32).
