ARPANET Host to Host Access and Disengagement Measurements

Judd A. Payne

Abstract: A set of telecommunications performance parameters have been developed for proposed Federal Standard 1033. The measurement of five of these parameters, access time, incorrect access time, access denial probability, disengagement time and disengagement failure probability are the subject of this report. The telnet protocol of the ARPANET is employed to measure the access and disengagement parameters from a Host to Host connection.
