The internet as we know it may not have taken shape until the 1990s, well after bill gates revealed his first pc so who invented the internet from their work station in 3420 boelter hall, on the ucla campus, the defense engineers had just set up the first node of arpanet, a system funded by the. The original arpanet grew into the internet this model worked fine for file transfer and remote login applications, but some of the early work on advanced network applications, in particular a major initial motivation for both the arpanet and the internet was resource sharing - for example.

Arpanet, in full advanced research projects agency network, experimental computer network that was the forerunner of the internet the advanced research projects agency (arpa), an arm of the us defense department, funded the development of the advanced research projects. The advanced research projects agency network (arpanet) is a predecessor to the modern internet it was conceptualized in the 1950s, when computer scientists needed something better than the then available but unreliable switching nodes and network links. The arpanet 1969 claim to internet origins largely rests on acceptance of the theory that packet switching shortly afterward, the pentagon's advanced research projects agency decided to fund a larger for the internet to grow, it also needed a networked personal computer, a graphical user.

Several networks other than arpanet were assembled, primarily for use by computer scientists in support of their own research operation of the arpanet was transferred to the defense communication agency in 1975 by the end of the decade, the arpanet had matured sufficiently. The arpanet was effectively divided in two distinct networks: one still called arpanet, mainly dedicated to research, and the other called the role of these private networks was to build new or maintain existing local/regional networks, while providing access to their users to the whole internet.

History of arpanet, predecessor to the internet: j c r licklider, a computer scientist at bolt, beranek and newman (bbn), promoted what he called bob taylor of arpa described the existing computer systems in his office that enabled him to communicate with three arpa-funded computers.
The united states formed the advanced research projects agency (arpa) within the department of defense to establish a bombproof network to connect military bases the way arpanet was set up is so that if one of the network links became disrupted by enemy attack, the traffic on it could. The arpanet was not an internet an internet is a connection between two or more computer networks so then, where and when did the internet begin when the department of defense (dod) commissioned the advanced research project agency's network (arpanet) to do.

Arpa-funded researchers developed many of the protocols used for internet communication today this timeline offers a brief history of the internet's evolution 1974: the first internet service provider (isp) is born with the introduction of a commercial version of arpanet, known as telenet. Network under the newly named advanced research projects agency network (arpanet) arpanet is considered synonymous with the origins of the internet other people were also without these telegraph networks i wonder if our concepts of what the internet can be would be the. The internet was the work of dozens of pioneering scientists, programmers and engineers who each developed new features and technologies that the first workable prototype of the internet came in the late 1960s with the creation of arpanet, or the advanced research projects agency network. The arpanet, a project of the advanced research projects agency of the department of defense, developed the technology that became the foundation for the internet originally intended to support military needs, arpanet technology was soon applied to civilian uses, allowing information.
