TCP/IP networks are the most common in use today, which is largely because of the use of TCP/IP for Internet communications. Using the library and the Internet, search for information on TCP/IP networking. Discuss the following:
- What makes TCP/IP networking so popular?
- Provide at least 2 examples (other than the Internet) for which TCP/IP networking is well-suited, and discuss reasons to support your answer.
