Networks
If you run or work in a business, you cannot do it without:
broadband
Today, more than 60 percent of India's Internet users have high-speed:
voice and data communication, Internet access,
Increasingly, __________ and ________________, as well as _______________, are taking place over braodband wireless platforms, such as cell phones, mobile handheld devices, and PCs in wireless networks.
mobile (Google)
It is estimated that the next 200-300 Internet users will come through_________
smaller internet-ready devices (MAIT).
The fastest growth will come from...
network
Two or more connected computers
network interface card (NIC)
Most computers have this card built into the motherboard.
a telephone wire, coaxial cable, or radio signal in the case of cell phone and wireless local area networks (Wi-Fi networks).
The connection medium for linking network components are:
(NOS) network operating system
routes and manages communications on the network and coordinates network resources.
server computer
a computer on a network that performs important network functions for client computers, such as serving up Web pages, storing data, and storing the network operating system.
Microsoft Windows Server, Linux, and Novell Open Enterprise Server
Server software that are the most widely used network operating systems.
client/server computing, the use of packet switching, and the development of widely used communications standards.
Contemporary digital networks and the Internet are based on three key technologies:
Internet
The _________________ is the largest implementation of client/server computing.
leased
Prior to packet switching, computer networks used:
packet switching
makes much more efficient use of the communications capacity of a network.
packet switching
In _________-_________ networks, messages are first broken down into small fixed bundles of data called packets.
routers
The packets are transmitted over various communication channels using ___________, each packet traveling independently.
diverse hardware and software components need to work together to transmit information.
In a typical telecommunications network:
TCP(Transmission Control Protocol)/IP(Internet Protocol)
________ was developed during the early 1970s to support U.S. Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) efforts to help scientists transmit data among different types of computers over long distances.
TCP
Establishes a connection between the computers, sequences the transfer of packets, and acknowledges the packets sent.
IP
refers to the Internet Protocol (IP), which is responsible for the delivery of packets and includes the disassembling and reassembling of packets during transmission.
Application layer
enables client application programs to access the other layers and defines the protocols that applications use to exchange data.
Transport layer
responsible for providing the Application layer with communication and packet services.
Internet layer
responsible for addressing, routing, and packaging data packets called IP datagrams.
Network Interface layer
At the bottom of the reference model, the Network Interface layer is responsible for placing packets on and receiving them from the network medium, which could be any networking technology.
TC/IP
Two computers using ____________ are able to communicate even if they are based on different hardware and software platforms.
all four layers
Data sent from one computer to the other passes downward through...
