A widely used network protocol that supports communication across interconnected networks; and between computers with diverse hardware architectures and various operating systems.
A standardized set of rules and operating procedures originally developed by the Department of Defense to permit connection of a number of different data networks designed by different vendors into a "network of networks" (the "Internet"). TCP is responsible for verifying the correct delivery of data. It is responsible for moving packets of data through the network based on an address. TCP/IP is the fundamental method of Internet operation.
The most common protocol used for communication between computers on a network. Originally developed by the US Department of Defense for a worldwide communications network that eventually developed into the Internet.
A set of communications protocols developed for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to internetwork dissimilar systems. It is used by many corporations, almost all American universities, and agencies of the federal government. The File Transfer Protocol and Simple Mail Transfer Protocol provide file transfer and electronic mail capability. The TELENET protocol provides a terminal emulation capability that allows a user to interact with any other type of computer in the network. The TCP protocol controls the transfer of the data, and the IP protocol provides the routing mechanism.

The name given to the collection of network protocols used by the Internet protocol suite. The name refers to the two primary network protocols of the suite: TCP (Transmission Control Protocol), the transport layer protocol, and IP (Internet Protocol), the network layer protocol.
A non-proprietary communications protocol for linking workstations to host computers and to other hardware.
The major transport protocol and the network layer protocol typically used in communicating messages over the Internet.
The TCP/IP protocol is a networking protocol that provides communication across interconnected networks, between computers with diverse hardware architectures and various operating systems. TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and IP (Internet Protocol) are only two protocols in the family of Internet protocols. Over time, however, "TCP/IP" has been used in industry to denote the family of common Internet protocols.

A set of networking protocols used on the Internet.
The Internet suite of protocols used to connect a world-wide internetwork of universities, organizations, and corporations. TCP/IP is based primarily on a connection-oriented transport service, the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP); and a connectionless-mode network service, the Internet Protocol (IP). TCP/IP provides standards for how computers and networks with different technologies communicate with each other.

A suite of protocols for communication between computers, used as a standard for transmitting data over networks and as the basis for standard Internet protocols.
A protocol suite for networking and internetworking that occupies the middle layers (3 and 4) of the OSI Reference Model. TCP/IP ensures that packets of data are delivered to their destination in the sequence in which they were transmitted. It was originally developed for the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) for all government and military contracts. A de facto standard, TCP/IP has achieved commercial success as a replacement for the still-to-be-developed middle layer ISO/OSI protocols.
A set of protocols developed by the Department of Defense's Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), to link dissimilar computers across many different types of networks. TCP/IP is the protocol that the Internet runs on, and is basically the glue that holds it together. Without TCP/IP, the Internet would be almost impossible, because without it everyone would have to have the same network running on the same protocols on the same computers. (Getting people to agree on a standard network type would be a nightmare!). This allows people to keep their networks the way they like them, and still be able to have world-wide data communications. TCP/IP is still a stack protocol suite like Open System Interconnection (OSI), but it only has four layers, instead of seven.
This is the language that computer devices use to communicate via the Internet.

(TCP/ IP)- This is the suite of protocols that defines the Internet. Originally designed for the UNIX operating system, TCP/IP software is now available for every major kind of computer operating system. To be truly on the Internet, your computer must have TCP/IP software. See also Internet Protocol (IP) Address, Internet, UNIX.
The communication protocol used by the Internet.
Abbreviated TCP/IP, a set of communication protocols encompassing media access, packet transport, session communications, file transfer, electronic mail and terminal emulation. It’s supported by a large number of hardware and software vendors and it’s also the basis of the Internet. TCP conducts data transfer between computers on the Internet or an intranet, and it ensures data is transmitted correctly. IP takes data from the TCP, breaks the data into packets and ships the data to another network.
