  • British computer scientist who worked at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and later at Logica. Scantlebury participated in pioneering work to develop packet switching and associated communication protocols at the NPL in the late 1960s. Wikipedia

  • NPL network

    Local area computer network operated by a team from the National Physical Laboratory in London that pioneered the concept of packet switching. Based on designs first proposed by Donald Davies in 1965, elements of the first version of the network, the Mark I, became operational during 1969 then fully operational in 1970, and the Mark II version operated from 1973 until 1986. Wikipedia

  • Protocol Wars

    A long-running debate in computer science known as the Protocol Wars occurred from the 1970s to the 1990s when engineers, organizations and nations became polarized over the issue of which communication protocol would result in the best and most robust computer networks. This culminated in the Internet–OSI Standards War in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Wikipedia

  • National Physical Laboratory (United Kingdom)

    National measurement standards laboratory for the United Kingdom. One of the most extensive government laboratories in Britain and has a "prestigious" reputation for its role in setting and maintaining physical standards for British industry. Wikipedia

  • Computer network

    Group of computers that use a set of common communication protocols over digital interconnections for the purpose of sharing resources located on or provided by the network nodes. The interconnections between nodes are formed from a broad spectrum of telecommunication network technologies, based on physically wired, optical, and wireless radio-frequency methods that may be arranged in a variety of network topologies. Wikipedia

  • Leonard Kleinrock

    American computer scientist. A professor at UCLA's Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science, he made several important contributions to the field of computer science, in particular to the theoretical foundations of data transmission in computer networking. Wikipedia
