Private Data Network Routing (pdnrout) Charter Status: Concluded August, 1990 Chair(s): CH Rokitansky Description of Working Group: The DoD INTERNET TCP/IP protocol suite has developed into a de facto industry standard for heterogenous packet switching computer networks. In the US, several hundreds of INTERNET networks are connected together; however the situation is completely different in Europe. \vspace{.15in} The only network which could be used as a backbone to allow interoperation between the many local area networks in Europe, now subscribing to the DoD INTERNET TCP/IP protocol suite, would be the system of Public Data Networks (PDN). However, so far, no algorithms have been provided to dynamically route INTERNET datagrams through X.25 public data networks. Therefore, the goals of the Public Data Network Routing Working Group are the development, definition and specification of required routing and gateway algorithms for an improved routing of INTERNET datagrams through the system of X.25 Public Data Networks (PDN) to allow worldwide interoperation between TCP/IP networks in various countries. In addition, the application and/or modification of the developed algorithms to interconnect local TCP/IP networks via ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) will be considered.
