IP – Connectionless

In this article we will discuss IP – Connectionless, will make brief discussion on IP – Connectionless, In last article we discuss about The Network Layer.

IP is connectionless, meaning that no dedicated end-to-end connection is created before data is sent. Connectionless communication is conceptually similar to sending a letter to someone without notifying the recipient in advance.

Connectionless data communications work on the same principle. IP requires no initial exchange of control information to establish an end-to-end connection before packets are forwarded. IP also does not require additional fields in the header to maintain an established connection.

This process greatly reduces the overhead of IP. However, with no pre-established end-to-end connection, senders are unaware whether destination devices are present and functional when sending packets, nor are they aware if the destination receives the packet, or if they are able to access and read the packet.
