In this article we will discuss Message transmission protocols (MTP), will make brief discussion on Message transmission protocols (MTP)In last article we discuss about MILNET.
There are two types of Internet Protocol traffic and they are User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). UDP is for fast, efficient transmission but it’s only single direction. UDP sends a bunch of packets out and then it’s done.
In computer networking, the User Datagram Protocol is one of the core members of the Internet protocol suite. The protocol was designed by David P. Reed in 1980 and formally defined in RFC 768.
UDP is used for some routing update protocols like RIP(Routing Information Protocol). Normally used for real time applications which can not tolerate uneven delays between sections of a received message. Following implementations uses UDP as a transport layer protocol: NTP (Network Time Protocol)
TCP is one of the main protocols in TCP/IP networks. Whereas the IP protocol deals only with packets, TCPenables two hosts to establish a connection and exchange streams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data and also guarantees that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent.
