All About the Internet

"US authorities considered ways to communicate in the aftermath of a nuclear attack. How could any sort of 'command and control network' survive? Paul Baran, a researcher at RAND, offered a solution: design a more robust communications network using 'redundancy' and 'digital' technology.

At the time, naysayers dismissed Baran's idea as unfeasible. But working with colleagues at RAND, Baran persisted. This effort would eventually become the foundation for the World Wide Web." - "Paul Baran and the Origins of the Internet," Rand Corporation, http://www.rand.org/about/history/baran.html

The very first transmission on the ARPANET (precursor to the Internet), on 29th October 1969, was from UCLA to Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International) (see http://www.sri.com/about/history/

"NSFNET T1 Backbone and Regional Networks (1991)"

Donna Cox and Robert Patterson, National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA)/University of Illinois. The NCSA is a leader in defining the future's high-performance computing infrastructure for scientists and for society (see NCSA: History). NCSA creates the hardware, software, and tools that will make up the grid. This grid will assemble the country's most advanced technologies into a single system that will advance science beyond what is possible today. The center partners with other institutions and American industry to ensure that the social and economic benefits of NCSA's research and knowledge are transferred to everyone.

This image is a visualization study of inbound traffic measured in billions of bytes on the NSFNET T1 backbone for September 1991. The traffic volume range is depicted from purple (zero bytes) to white (100 billion bytes). It represents data collected by Merit Network, Inc
