Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP)
- 82 Downloads
The interconnection of networks is known as internetworking (or internet). Each part of an internet is a subnetwork (or subnet). TCP/IP are a pair of protocols which allow one subnet to communicate with another. A protocol is a set of rules which allow the orderly exchange of information. The IP part corresponds to the Network layer of the OSI model and the TCP part to the Transport layer. Their operation is transparent to the Physical and Data Link layers and can thus be used on Ethernet, FDDI or token ring networks.
