This paper presents an effective application of Net-theory for all the stages of the communication protocol development process. Net-theory provides a basic mathematical model and tool for development of communication protocol. The special usability of Net-theory is that 1) visual representation of the system's stadic/dynamic structure, so that users may easily understand the represented contents, 2) formal specifications based on mathematical basis of Net-theory admit automatic verification, implementation and conformance testing. We have seen that Net-theory which has the above usability can provide a systematic and advanced paradigm for effective communication protocol development.
