The battle between standards: TCP/IP vs OSI victory through path dependency or by quality?
Maathuis, I.J.H. and Smit, W.A. (2003) The battle between standards: TCP/IP vs OSI victory through path dependency or by quality? In: 3rd IEEE Conference on Standardization and Innovation in Information Technology, 22-24 October 2003, Delft, The Netherlands, Delft (pp. pp. 161-176).
|Abstract:||Between the end of the 1970s and 1994 a fierce competition existed between two possible standards, TCP/IP and OSI, to solve the problem of interoperability of computer networks. Around 1994 it became evident that TCP/IP and not OSI had become the dominant standard. We specifically deal with the question whether the current dominance of the TCP/IP standard is the result of third degree path dependency or of choices based on assessments of it being technical-economically superior to the OSI standard and protocols.|
