The Internet has many different kinds of applications (e.g., audio, email, chat). The applications interact with a few transport protocols like TCP, UDP and RTP. There is only one widely-deployed network protocol, the Internet Protocol (IP). The IP protocol facilitates routing and subnetwork specific details from the transport protocols. While this allows transport protocols to run over many different kinds of subnet (e.g., Ethernet, wireless network, FDDI), they are not optimized for any specific subnetwork.
