Advances in Packet Radio Technology

Robert E. Kahn, Steven A. Gronemeyer, Jerry Burchfiel, and Ronald C. Kunzelman

One-line summary: Basic concepts of packet radio technology are discussed, and an implementaton of a PR network (called PRnet) is described in detail.

Overview/Main Points


The PRnet research yielded fundamental insights into packet-radio technology and limitations. The work performed was rigorous science, and should be used as an example of a successful research project. Many of the discoveries and techniques used remain unmodified 20 years later.
