ABSTRACT: (a brief paragraph describing content of the presentation)
In June 1971 the first two way wireless transmission of data packets within a computer network was put into operation in the ALOHA Network at the Manoa campus of the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. The ALOHA protocol developed in that project has since formed the basis of almost all wireless and many wired random access MAC protocols. Ethernet, WiFi, a wide variety of CSMA based protocols, DOCSIS and four generations of cellular standards trace the origins of their MAC protocols back to the ALOHA Network.
In this talk we outline and illustrate the history of the development of ALOHA channels at the University of Hawaii and the worldwide application of ALOHA. Various open questions dealing with the efficient and effective use of ALOHA in the networks of tomorrow will be discussed.
