Abstract is an extension to KRoC supporting the distribution of occam channels over networks, including the internet. Starting in 2001, the development of has gone through a number of stages, each one making the system more flexible, transparent and dynamic.

It now enables the occam programmer to set up and close network channels dynamically. Configuration has been simplified. All occam PROTOCOLs can now be sent over network channels, without need for conversion. Many of the new dynamic features in occam have been used to improve Many of the concepts in are similar to those in the JCSP Network Edition (,'s counterpart in the JCSP world.

This paper will give an overview over, its usage, its design and implementation, and its future. It will also provide some benchmarks and discuss how the new occam features are being used in the latest version.
