Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) Overview
Speaker: Stéphane Richard
This presentation provides an overview of the protocols that power the internet. The Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) is a suite of communication protocols used to interconnect network devices on the internet. These protocols are used when you are surfing the internet using a browser, getting your emails from a server, accessing your IP security camera, etc. This presentation won’t make you a network engineer but will give you a “look-behind-the-curtain” on how the internet works.
