Why TCP and IP are written all together as TCP/IP?




Answers were Sorted based on User's Feedback



Answer / guest

TCP/IP consists of dozens of different protocols, but only a
few are the “main” protocols that define the core operation
of the suite. Of these key protocols, two are usually
considered the most important. The Internet Protocol (IP) is
the primary OSI network layer (layer three) protocol that
provides addressing, datagram routing and other functions in
an internetwork. The Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) is
the primary transport layer (layer four) protocol, and is
responsible for connection establishment and management and
reliable data transport between software processes on
devices.IP and TCP are important because many of TCP/IP's
most critical functions are implemented at layers three and four

Due to the importance of these two protocols, their
abbreviations have come to represent the entire suite: “TCP/IP”

Answer / hmm

when we need to transport data we care about the data should
be delivered to exact address which can handle by IP protocol
and the data should reach the destination intact(no errors
or lose of data) which can handle by TCP protocol
IP reliable in providing addressing, datagram routing
TCP reliable in connection establishment and data transport
by using the two protocols as a suit we can achieve this

Answer / srikanth kaligotla

Actually it stands for Transmission Control Protocol over Internet Protocol

and they mean the same thing.

That's not correct.

First, Ethernet is the low-level hardware system that controls how the actual hardware parts function.

Next, think of IP as a phone system or traffic signs. It provides the basic control of connecting system two points together.

TCP on the other hand is more like a messaging system or traffic control officer which directs messages/cars to the correct point.

Taken together, TCP/IP, provides a system of reliably transferring data to and from any two connected devices.

With the Internet, when you want to send or receive data, the IP part of the system is the part that controls making the actual hardware connections with the wires (or wireless waves). The TCP part of the system is the software that is responsible for taking the data and breaking it up, sending it, reassembling the received data, and checking the data and re-sending if necessary.

There are countless explanations with analogies and technical details available.

However, is it not possible for TCP to be built on top of another protocol besides IP?

Answer / dinesh

ip(internet protocol) is used for addressing of the network
and tcp(tramnsmission control protocol)is used to check the
reliability of the network....so both should be written together

Answer / teena

tcp/ip is standard and this combination is
compatible.

Answer / guest

tcp/ip is standard and this combination is
compatible/supported for all os like, all microsoft
os,sun ,unix,linux etc.

Is This Answer Correct ?    17 Yes 22 No

Answer / prasanta kumar meher

TCP/IP is represent the hole protocol suit of
microsoft.There are so many protocol but among them there
are few protocals are very important, like TCP and IP. So in
this way TCP and IP all together as TCP/IP.
