a. The map of the TCP/IP Layer to the OSI Model shows the similarities that they both contain similar layers though the application layer is more refined in the OSI. Beginning with the application layer to the presentation layer to the session’s layer then reaching the networking. Showing the application layer is not one piece of software that these added levels show more applications that can be developed in these layers. 3. What is a protocol? a. Defines the rules that both the sender and receiver and all intermediate devices need to follow to be able to communicate effectively. 4. What is a standard? a. Thoroughly tested specification that is useful to and adhered to by those who work with the internet, formalized regulation that must be followed 5. What is the difference between a LAN and a WAN? a. LAN is a local small and private network. WAN is a widespread connection that uses switched and multiple LAN networks to make connection from a town to worldwide 6. What is the difference between internet and Internet? a. An internet is two or more networks that are connected, this is also known as an internetwork. It is also a worldwide network that can be accessed by anyone on any given computer as long as they know the IP address. An intranet is a private network using the TCP/IP protocol suite. The difference between an internet and intranet is that an internet is accessible anywhere outside the intranet. The networks are protected by a firewall and so not able to be accessed on the internet. An internet connects computers all over the world where as an intranet can connect computers with no access to the internet. (HCI Data) The Internet (capital i) is a global internet that uses the TCP/IP protocol suite to connect the computers together. What is different about Internet2 is that it is not opened to the general public and has specific reasons for improvement unlike the Internet, which has more general uses. Examples of these uses include to “create a leading-edge network capability for research and development; enable testing of new fiber products and routers; create new network services and applications for the standard Internet.” Internet2 uses a higher bandwidth with fewer users, which makes run faster also

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
