​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 ​KS3 Computer Science module introduces ​​network protocols and layers 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
  • Error-checking methods
  • Routing
