What was ARPANET?
ARPANET continued to grow, encompassing many networks from universities and government institutions.
To help manage this rapidly growing "network of networks", ARPANET was split into two networks in 1983:
ARPANET - continued to be a research and development network.
MILNET - an unclassified network reserved only for military sites. MILNET continues to serve this function.
