Protocols in multi-service networks








Learn about communication protocols and networks in this free course. Explore HTTP, TCP/IP, and ATM protocols, as well as the OSI reference model. Gain a deep understanding of circuit-switched and packet-switched networks, connectionless and connection-oriented modes, and the role of primitives in the OSI model. Discover how communication occurs vertically and horizontally in the OSI model. Lastly, explore the main functions of protocols in the TCP/IP architecture. Enhance your knowledge and evaluation skills of communication protocols with this comprehensive course.

The internet, like the telephone system which preceded it, depends for its existence on communications networks. This free course, Protocols in multi-service networks, examines these networks as the means of interconnecting devices so that two-way communication is possible. Examining protocols like HTTP, TCP/IP and ATM as well as the OSI reference model, it provides an overview of the topic for learners who have significant prior knowledge of the subject.
