They developed the ARPAnet which was a network consisting of a small number of computers situated geographically remote from one another. The aim was to establish the feasibility of building a network that could survive in the event of a nuclear strike. Such a network must still be able to function if a number of the hosts were not working. This successful experiment was then used by scientists to store and communicate scientific documents amongst each other. This became a popular means of sharing information and keeping abreast of new developments.

This extensive use has led to the development of the public switched data network, PSDN, and integrated services digital network lines, ISDN lines, in order to speed up transmission rates. Communication over large distances can also be achieved by satellite and radio communication. Digital signals are in one of two physical states, at one of two opposite extremes. These states are represented by the binary digits 1 and o. Analogue signals can he at one of these extreme stales or al any value in-between.
