Part of the Applications of Communications Theory book series (ACTH)


Dating back to their origins in the 1960s, computer data communications networks have experienced unrelenting growth, not only in the United States, but throughout the modern world. This growth has been driven by many factors including electronic and computer technology, the proliferation of both mainframe and small computer systems, and a favorable economic and business environment.
