a set of rules used for the process of packaging, starting, interrupting, and continuing network data communications.
Metadata for entity: network In networking, a communications protocol or network protocol is the specification of a set of rules for a particular type of communication.
the data which establishes the rules and regs, do's and don'ts that networked computers share in order to communicate.
A set of predetermined rules that allow two entities that have never met to communicate. A handshake is a protocol. Two computers/ devices set up to use the same protocol will know what messages to expect and how to respond.
rules for network communications; examples include CSMA/CD, token passing, and TCP/IP.
an agreed format for transmitting data between two devices. The protocol determines the following: the type of error checking to be used; data compression method, if any; how the sending device will indicate that it has finished sending a message; how the receiving device will indicate that it has received a message.
a formal set of rules, conventions and data structure that governs how computers exchange information over a network
a set of formal rules explaining how software and hardware should interact within a network in order to transmit information
a set of rules and procedures for communicating and exchanging data over a network
a standard format for transmitting data between applications
A way for two elements on a network (server, hosts, workstations etc.) to communicate in a standard way.
A formal description of message formats and rules that two or more computers must follow in order to communicate across a network.
A network protocol can be understood as the language of a network. All devices who would like to communicate through a network have to use the same protocol. The most widely used protocol at the moment is TCP/IP.
A way to transmit data between devices on a network. The N1 Grid Service Provisioning System uses TCP/IP, SSH, and SSL.
See Oracle protocol support.
A set of rules that defines how data is transported across networks. There are several industry standard transport protocols, such as TCP/IP and SPX.
A set of technical specifications that allow different computers to receive and transmit Internet messages through their interconnected communication channels.
A communications protocol from the Network Layer of the Open Systems Interconnect (OSI) network architecture, such as the Internet Protocol (IP).
Any industry standard transport protocol, such as TCP/IP or APPC.
