A Level Computer Science: Network protocols and layers
This module contains:
Compatible with the following examination boards
Network protocols and layers
Networking protocols define rules and conventions for communication.
Protocols determine the speed of transmission, size of the message, error checking methods and type of transmission (synchronous or asynchronous).
This A Level Computer Science module introduces network protocols and layers networks to your students, explaining:
- How devices are addressed in networks
- Various protocols used in networking
- Concept of layering and how it is applied to networks
- Transmission of data using TCP/IP suite of protocols
