Subject: Connectionless Data Transmission Survey/Tutorial

From: A. Lyman Chapin

The attached paper on connectionless data transmission is being

distributed to the members of a number of US organizations that are

involved or interested in the development of international data

communication standards. Following a review period ending Septem-

ber 1, 1981, a revised version of the paper - incorporating com-

ments and suggestions received from reviewers - will be considered

by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) committee

responsible for Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) Reference Model

issues (ANSC X3T5). If approved, it will then be presented to the

relevant International Organization for Standardization (ISO)

groups as the foundation of a US position recommending the incor-

poration of connectionless data transmission by the Reference Model

and related OSI service and protocol standards.

Your comments on the paper, as well as an indication of the extent

to which the concepts and services of connectionless data transmis-

sion are important to you and/or your organization, will help to

ensure that the final version reflects a true US position. They

should be directed to the author at the following address:

ABSTRACT

The increasingly familiar and ubiquitous Re-

ference Model of Open Systems Interconnection,

currently being considered by the International

Organization for Standardization (ISO) for

promotion to the status of a Draft International

Standard, is based on the explicit assumption

that a "connection" - an association between two

or more communicating entities, possessing

certain characteristics over and above those

possessed by the entities themselves - is

required for the transfer of data in an Open

Systems Interconnection (OSI) environment.

Although the connection-oriented model of

communications behavior has proven to be an

extremely pow...
