you can see the parralel. In 1985, recognizing the lack of adequate information and training, Dan Lynch in cooperation with the IAB, organized a three - day meeting for all manufacturers who want to know how TCP / IP and what was not yet able to do . The speakers mainly belonged to the DARPA research community who had developed protocols and used them in their daily work. About 250 manufacturers came to listen to 50 inventors and experimenters. The results were a surprise to both parties: manufacturers discovered with astonishment that the inventors were open to suggestions on how systems worked (and what he still was not able to do) and inventors welcomed information on new problems but they did not know they'd determined producers in the progress and operation of new products. Thus it was established a dialogue that has lasted more than a decade.
After two years of conferences, courses, design meetings and conferences, a special event for manufacturers whose products function properly under TCP / IP could display them together for three days and demonstrate how well they could work and run on the Internet it was organized. The first 'Interop Trade show' was developed in September 1988. Sixty companies presented their products and some 5,000 engineers potentially buying organizations came to see if everything worked as promised. And he did. Why? Because manufacturers had worked hard to ensure that their products intero-peraban properly with each other even with those of its competitors. The Interop has grown tremendously since then and today is held every year in seven places in the world with an audience of 250,000 people who come to see what products interoperate properly with others, know what the latest and to discuss the technology more recent. In parallel with marketing efforts covered by the activities of Interop, manufacturers began to attend meetings of the IETF that summoned three or four times a year to discuss new ideas for extending the set of related TCP / IP protocols. They started with a few hundred attendees mostly from academia and funded by the public sector; currently these meetings attract several thousand participants, mostly from the private sector and financed by it. Members of this group have evolved TCP / IP cooperating with each other. The reason this is so useful is that come to them all stakeholders: researchers, end users and Manufacturers.
Network management provides an example of the beneficial relationship between the research community and manufacturers. He emphasized the definition and implementation of protocols that achieved interoperation in the early Internet. As the network grew appeared situations where decision developed "ad hoc" to manage the network were not able to grow with it. Manual configuration of tables was changed by distributed automated algorithms, and better tools to solve specific problems. In 1987 it became clear that a protocol that would allow could manage remote and evenly network elements such as routers necessary. Several protocols for this purpose, including SNMP know as thus (Single Network Management Protocol, SNMP designed, as its name suggests, looking for simplicity were proposed; HEMS, a more complex design of the research community; and CMIP developed by OSI community. A series of meetings led to the decision to dismiss HEMS as a candidate for standardization, allowing both SNMP and CMIP go ahead with the idea that the first was an immediate solution while CMIP should become a long - term approach: the market you could choose that would be more appropriate. SNMP is now used almost universally for network management.
In recent years we have experienced a new phase in marketing. Originally, the efforts invested in this task consisted mainly of manufacturers offering commodities to work on network and service providers offering connectivity and basic services. Internet has now become a "commodity", a service of general availability for end users, and much of the attention has focused on the use of the GII (Global Information Infrastructure) to support commercial services. This fact has accelerated tremen-mately by the rapid and widespread adoption of displays and technology World Wide Web, allowing users easy access to information distributed throughout the world. They are available products that facilitate access to this information and much of the latest technological developments are aimed at obtaining information services increasingly sophisticated communications basic data on the Internet.
