TCP/IP protocol suite has become the de facto standard for computer
communications in today's networked world. The ubiquitous implementation
of a specific networking standard has led to an incredible dependence on
the applications enabled by it. Today, we use the TCP/IP protocols and the
Internet not only for entertainment and information, but to conduct our
business by performing transactions, buying and selling products, and
delivering services to customers. We are continually extending the set of
applications that leverage TCP/IP, thereby driving the need for further
In TCP/IP Tutorial and Technical Overview, we take an in-depth look into the TCP/IP protocol suite. In Part I, we introduce TCP/IP, providing a basic understanding of the underlying concepts essential to the protocols. We continue our discussion in Part II with a survey of today's most popular TCP/IP application protocols, including emerging wireless and multimedia applications.
Finally, in Part III, we cover advanced concepts and the latest infrastructural trends in networking, including IPv6, security, Quality of Service, IP mobility, and MPLS. We address the challenges that TCP/IP is currently facing and the technology being developed to overcome them.
