Abstract

The national network connecting colleges, research institutions, and some businesses — the Internet is actually an amalgam of many smaller networks. Originally constituted by the government for its use (as ARPA‐net), the Internet connects state and regional networks together into one logical network. With the proper physical connections and software installed a mainframe, mini,or PC can be a node on this network.
