Instead, we will be asking (and answering) the question of why networks are designed the way they are. 2 Requirements to settle for just understanding the way it’s done today, it is important to recognize the underlying concepts because networks are constantly changing as the technology evolves and new applications are invented. It is our experience that once you understand the fundamental ideas, any new protocol that you are confronted with will be relatively easy to digest. 1 Perspectives As we noted above, a student of networks can take several perspectives.

1 Not quite “as soon as possible”—human factors research indicates 300 ms is a reasonable upper bound for how much round-trip delay can be tolerated in a telephone call before humans complain, and a 100-ms delay sounds very good. 1 A multimedia application including videoconferencing. LAB 00: Introduction For now, this quick look at a few typical applications will suffice to enable us to start looking at the problems that must be addressed if we are to build a network that supports such application diversity.

This service interface defines the operations that local objects can perform on the protocol. For example, a request/ reply protocol would support operations by which an application can send and receive messages. An implementation of the HTTP protocol could support an operation to fetch a page of hypertext from a remote server. , when the user clicks on a link in the currently displayed page). Second, a protocol defines a peer interface to its counterpart (peer) on another machine. This second interface defines the form and meaning of messages exchanged between protocol peers to implement the communication service.
