INTERNET AND E MAIL NOTES
Internet is a global network of many computers connected via telecommunication networks. The computers communicate using a set of protocols called TCP/IP(Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol).
Network is a group of computers and associated devices connected by communications facilities (both hardware and software) to share information and peripheral devices, such as printers and modems.
ISP is a company that provides and sells physical Internet access to users. ISP is a company that provides access to the Internet. ISPstands for Internet Service Provider.
Examples:- UCC, Africaonline, Simbanet, Raha, Cybertwiga, Datel, TTCL, Internet Africa (Intafrica), Cats-net
Modemstands for Modulator/De-modulator. Modem is a hardware device that allows a computer to transmit and receive information over telephone lines. A modem converts digital data from computers into analog data that can be transmitted over the telephone lines. Traditional modems can carry data at speeds of up to 56Kbps. Kbps stands forKilobits per second. Kbps is a measure of data transmission speed
Protocol is a standardized means of communication among machines across a network. Protocols allow data to be taken apart for faster transmission, transmitted, and then reassembled at the destination in the correct order. The protocol used determines the way errors are checked, the type of compression, the way the sender indicates the end of the transmission, and the way the receiver indicates that the message has been received. Protocols can describe low-level details of machine-to-machine interfaces (e.g., the order in which bits and bytes are sent across a wire) or high-level exchanges between allocation programs (e.g., the way in which two programs transfer a file across the Internet).
Internet Protocol is the most basic protocol to communicate on the Internet. An IP number is a numerical address consisting of four numbers seperated by periods. Each IP address uniquely identifies a certain computer on the Internet. The domain name is used to make using them easier.
Examples:-126.96.36.199 (This is IP number for fcbayern.de)
