In this introductory course, we're going to start at the beginning and learn about the origins of the protocols that underpin the Internet and enterprise networks. From its humble beginning in the early 1970s, Transmission Control Protocol and Internet Protocol, or TCP/IP, has grown to dominate every network we use today. You will learn about each of the layers of the TCP/IP networking model, and you will understand the concept of peer protocols. You'll also learn about the standardization process overseen by the Internet Engineering Task Force, or IETF. Finally, you'll learn about the types of requests for comments or RFCs that are used by the IETF.
