Internet Protocol (IP)


'Internet Protocol (IP)' is pivotal for internet communications, facilitating data packet transmission across networks. It underpins all Internet interactions.

IP assigns unique addresses to devices, ensuring data packets are routed correctly. The prevalent IPv4 is giving way to IPv6, addressing the need for more internet addresses.

IP's routing capabilities ensure data travels to the right destinations, making it foundational to the Internet's infrastructure and modern networking.
