This subject is about the TCP/IP protocol suite and how it is used on the internet. It begins with a short history of the internet, the organisations that develop internet standards, and a review of the underlying communications technologies needed for the internet. Detailed examinations of IP addressing, IP routing, as well as the internet layers and protocols are then facilitated. Finally internet applications, IPv6, and the future of TCP/IP are discussed.
