Network layer principles

1st edition, September 1982

This Technical Report reflects the current understanding of the architectural aspects of the Network Layer, as defined in the Reference Model for Open Systems Interconnection.

It is felt that the principles to be used for interconnecting a number of (heterogeneous) networks are of prime importance for the Network Layer structure and therefore it is this aspect that dominates this document.
