Networking your computer dramatically enhances their ability to communicate and most computer are used more for communication than computation. The positive impact of computers grows in direct proportion to the number and type of computers that participate in network. One of the greatest benefits of TCP/IP is that it provides interoperable communication between all types of hardware and operating system. TCP/IP is an abbreviation for transmission control protocol/internet protocol. TCP/IP refers to the entire suite of data communication protocols. This article review majorly looks at how TCP/IP is used as a reliable network transmission protocol all over the world. TCP/IP is also used in a private computer network as a communications protocol. This discussion deals with the structure of TCP/IP, its components, its benefits over the OSI model, and OSI model and its component and difference between both models. We have also discussed its underlying protocol that is IP (Internet Protocol), TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) and UDP (User Diagram Protocol).

Keywords: Internet networking, protocols, TCP, OSI, application layers
