Abstract : The paper reviews some of the basic structuring mechanisms in distributed systems from the perspective of an wide-accepted reference model (ISO/OSI). The acceptance of the model and its related standards by international bodies (ISO, IEEE, CCITT, IEC etc.) and the computer manufacturers will have an important role in the development of distributed systems based on available products. The paper outlines the general framework and the requirements of distributed systems and focus on the practical and conceptual problems in using the ISO/OSI in the design of distributed systems.
