The Internet: A Network of Networks

The Internet is an interconnected network of thousands of networks linking academic, research, government, and commercial institutions.

Internet Services

The Internet provides scientists, engineers, educators, students, business people, and others with a variety of services such as:

  • Electronic mail (send/receive mail messages)
  • Remote login(Telnet - access to other computers)

  • Transferring files(FTP - accessing archives of data)
  • Newsgroups(Usenet - on-line public discussions)
  • World Wide Web(a collection of multimedia documents)

Counting Connections

Today, the Internet connects computers to about every country in the world. However, the Internet is:

  • growing too fast to measure its growth
  • too decentralized to quantify
  • a network with no hard boundaries
internet protocols
Internet Protocols

The language at the heart of the Internet is TCP/IP…

  • Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol
  • Allows cross-network communication
internet protocols8
Internet Protocols

TCP breaks messages into packets

  • Each packet has all the information needed to travel from network to network
  • Host systems called Routers determine how to route transmissions
internet protocols9
Internet Protocols

IP is the address for the packets

  • Each Internet host computer has a unique IP Address
  • Each address is comprised of four sets of numbers separated by periods, such as
internet addresses
Internet Addresses
  • The host is named using DNS (domain name system), which translates IP addresses into a string of names.

“Each person on the “Internet” has a unique e-mail “address” created by having a squirrel run across a computer keyboard.”

Dave Barry

Direct (dedicated) Connection

  • Computer has its own IP address and is attached to a LAN
  • No need to dial up
  • Files are stored on your computer
  • Response time is quick
internet access options16
Internet Access Options
  • Dialup Connections
    • limited connection using a modem
    • Full access dial up uses SLIP or PPP via modem
  • Broadband Connections

internet applications communication and connection
Internet Applications:Communication and Connection
  • The Internet use the client/server model for most Internet applications.
  • In the client/server model a client program asks for information, and a server program fields the request and provides the requested information from databases and documents.
internet applications communication and connection20
Internet Applications:Communication and Connection
  • An email server acts like a local post office for a particular Internet host—a business, an organization, or an ISP.
  • File serversare common within LANs, but they’re also used to share programs, media files, and other computer data across the Internet.
internet applications communication and connection21
Internet Applications:Communication and Connection
  • File transfer protocol (FTP) allows users to download files from remote servers to their computers and to upload files.
  • File compression saves storage space on disk and saves transmission time when files are transferred through networks.
internet applications communication and connection22
Internet Applications:Communication and Connection
  • An application server stores applications- PC office applications, databases, or other applications - and makes them available to client programs that request them.
  • An application server might be housed at an application service provider (ASP) - a company that manages and delivers application services on a contract basis.
  • A Web server stores Web pages and sends pages to client Web browsers.
