Hello,


The protocol stack is an implementation of a computer networking protocol suite. The terms are often used interchangeably. Strictly speaking, the suite is the definition of the protocols, and the stack is the software implementation of them

sir,

The protocol stack is an implementation of a computer networking protocol suite. The terms are often used interchangeably. Strictly speaking, the suite is the definition of the protocols, and the stack is the software implementation of them.
Individual protocols within a suite are often designed with a single purpose in mind. This modularization makes design and evaluation easier. Because each protocol module usually communicates with two others, they are commonly imagined as layers in a stack of protocols. The lowest protocol always deals with "low-level", physical interaction of the hardware. Every higher layer adds more features. User applications usually deal only with the topmost layers.
In practical implementation, protocol stacks are often divided into three major sections: media, transport, and applications. A particular operating system or platform will often have two well-defined software interfaces: one between the media and transport layers, and one between the transport layers and applications.

Hi,

Diplomats learned a long time ago that, where different cultures come together, you need rules for accurate transfer of information.
For example, in some cultures shaking your head up and down means “yes”, in other cultures it means “no.”
If you don’t ensure accurate communication, you will soon have a war on your hands!
The rules diplomats develop for communicating are called protocols.
Because we have a similar function in networks, we use the same name for our rules.


Thanks
