Now that you have read Clark’s paper on “What is an Architecture?” and papers on
TCP/IP (ARPANET) design philosophy/architecture and OSI
-
ISO architecture, it is time
to think about the differences
and commonality between the two networking architectures
and try to understand why ARPANET survived while OSI
-
ISO model has not been
widely adopted.


1.

Section 1.3 on Network Architecture from Peterson and Davie’s book provides a
good overview and some insi
ghts into the two architectures. It is available online at
http://www.cs.arizona.edu/llp/book/node6.html#SECTION00240000000000000000

2.

RFC 871
A PERSPECTIVE ON THE ARP
ANET REFERENCE MODEL
, provides
a critical comparision between ARPANET architecture, referred to as ARPANET
reference model (ARM), and OSI
-
ISO architecture, referred to as ISO reference
model (ISORM). The paper is somewhat difficult to read because of use o
f archaic
terminology but does provide some interesting insights into the two models.
