A Technical History of the CYCLADES -
A Technical Tour


This Tour presents details of the CYCLADES Architecture. Click on any link, for a complete explanation of an architectural component. An overview is available, which provides a good high-level summary of how CYCLADES operates. While much of the Tour can be read independently of the other parts, it is recommended that everyone read the overview first.

Readers interested in learning more about networks in general should reference the online text book Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach Featuring the Internet by James F. Kurose and Keith W. Ross.

The first section of this document is a brief architecture overview of Cyclades. The remainder is split into three sections (one for each layer of the network) and can serve as a reference tool as well as a learning tool.
