Variable-Length Message Transmission for Distributed Loop Computer Networks (Part I).
Reames, C. C.; Liu, M. T.
An introduction to the problems of variable-length message transmission in distributed loop computer networks, with a summary of previous accomplishments in the area, begins this technically-oriented document. An improved technique, overcoming some of the inadequacies in presently used techniques, is proposed together with a conceptual model of its operation. The effects of the proposed technique, utilizing some of the properties of systems interfacing and hardware buffering, are discussed in terms of their action on message transmission. An appendix provides some possible hardware realizations of the model. (WDR)
