INTRODUCTION TO THE IPN and DTN, BY IPNSIG CHAIRPERSON VINT CERF

The InterPlanetary Networking Special Interest Group (IPNSIG) seeks to promote effective data communications over interplanetary distances. Communicating over those vast distances and in the challenging (for data communications) environment of space requires a really different approach to networking than that ubiquitous networking environment we are most used to: the internet. Our Chairperson, Vint Cerf (Internet Pioneer who co-wrote TCP/IP—the core protocols used by today’s internet) explains, in his TEDxMidAtlantic 2011 “Interplanetary Internet”  video shown below.
