Internet Networking Protocols

Different Internet networking protocols and devices


Network and Internet protocols are used to communicate among networks. Communication between the network devices is possible by using certain rules and conventions for the communication. Network protocols deal with these rules and conventions. Using network protocol, we can identify the type of connection and the devices in the network. Usually we send data as packets through the network. Several network protocols are available. There are different types of protocols based on OSI and TCP/IP model. Internet protocol is used to send the data among Internet. With Internet Protocol (IP), other high-level protocols such as Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) are used to provide high functionalities. Several network and Internet protocols are used for different environment. These protocols allow faster and reliable transmission of data. Otherwise, we can say that without these protocols proper transmission of data is not possible. These protocols also deal with packet switching technique. This is because the data are sending as packets between the devices. Each packet contain information and a header which specifies the receiving point and all other details.

Internet networking devices



Internet networking devices are necessary for the connection between devices. Different Internet networking devices are router, hub, switch and bridge. Each of these devices plays an important role in the connecting computer. Router is the network device which connects two devices logically and physically. Hub is a central connecting device in the network. Modem is a device which provides Internet connectivity. Bridge is a device which connects several devices along the data link layer.



Features of these devices



These devices provide several features to the network. They help to identify problems in LAN and WAN. It provides the capacity of networking systems. Another main feature of these devices is traffic analysis. These devices can identify the top application and provide traffic control over networks. Another facility is the System Resource Reporting. Some of these devices have the ability to track CPU, memory etc.



Roles of these devices


Internet networking devices are used to run communications of network smoothly and efficiently. They have intermediary roles in the network. That is these devices provide connectivity and enable the data flow among the devices. These devices are used to connect individual end devices for the network. Other important functionality of these devices is they can also used to connect multiple networks to for Internet networking.
