In brief, clearly explain what the following ideas mean: (i) open architecture networking with respect to packet switching? (ii) what is the full form for TCP/IP? (iii) What were the four ground rules critical to Kahn’s early thinking? (iv) in the history of the future, what does Internet refer to? If the internet has not finished changing, what is its future look like? What is the most pressing question for the future? Share your comments as a response to this post.
