FISHNET: A Distributed Architecture for High-Performance Local Computer Networks
January 1988 (vol. 37 no. 1)
pp. 119-123
FISHNET (facilities integrated in a shared habitat network) addresses the problem of effectively integrating a wide variety of computers, terminals, memory devices and computer peripherals in a local environment. High performance is achieved by effectively separating the high volume node-to-node data communications and the low-volume network control information. Data messages travel through poi
