Download TCP/IP For Dummies 6th Edition By Candace Leiden And Marshall Wilensky

Introduction

For both good and ill, modern society around the world has been trans-formed by the Internet. But the Internet was not the first data communications network, not by a long shot. So, what was it about the Internet that enabled the revolution? In a very basic way, it was the use of TCP/IP. TCP/IP enabled the Internet to be the first data network where the use could be driven by the users and not controlled by the carriers. TCP/IP is an end-to- end protocol. The network is there to carry the bits from any device at the edge of the network to any other device. This stands in stark contrast to X.25, frame relay, ATM, and other carrier-managed data networks, where the carrier determined who you could talk to, and in an even starker contrast to the phone network, where the carrier determined what you could do.

This end-to-end architecture has resulted in an amazing proliferation of applications because the network does not get in the way of individual entrepreneurs developing the next great thing and running it over the Internet. It also did not get in the way of millions of people putting up their own Web pages or, with somewhat more controversy, swapping music and movie fi les. Even if you consider the Internet boom and subsequent bust, the Internet, and TCP/IP, are here to stay. And, while here, they will continue to radically change the way we interact with employers, service providers, each other, and the world at large.
