Model the ARPANET Graph

Learn to model and query the earliest ARPANET graphs using Cypher.

Let’s see how we can model the ARPANET graph simply.

December 1969 network

To keep things simple, let’s roll back a couple of years to the four-node network from December of that standout year—1969. Here we have one host computer at each of four sites (UCLA, UCSB, SRI, and Utah). Each site has a dedicated minicomputer—the IMP (Interface Message Processor)—which functions as a node on the network backbone. The host computers are satellites and attach directly to the IMPs.
