The Internet Protocol Suite, commonly known as TCP/IP, forms the basis for the Internet and the next generation of networking and telecommunications services. Not only is it being used for pure data services such as Electronic Mail and Web-Based services but it is now also used as the core for mobile phone networks and Next Generation Services. It is now important for any staff involved in the transportation of data over networks to understand how the many hardware and software elements in a network interact and compliment each other in order to provide a secure environment for the storage and transportation of data.
