  Communications protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An example of a simple communications protocol adapted to voice communication is the case of a radio dispatcher talking to mobile stations.
Protocol layering accomplishes these objectives by dividing the protocol design into a number of smaller parts, each of which performs closely related sub-tasks, and interacts with other layers of the protocol only in a small number of well-defined ways.
Protocol layering allows the parts of a protocol to be designed and tested without a combinatorial explosion of cases, keeping each design relatively simple.

 RFC 1067 (rfc1067) - Simple Network Management Protocol
Network elements are devices such as hosts, gateways, terminal servers, and the like, which have management agents responsible for performing the network management functions requested by the network management stations.
A second goal of the protocol is that the functional paradigm for monitoring and control be sufficiently extensible to accommodate additional, possibly unanticipated aspects of network operation and management.
Protocol Specification The network management protocol is an application protocol by which the variables of an agent's MIB may be inspected or altered.

 Network Protocols: Definition and Overview
The IP, the Internet Protocol, is responsible for exchanging information between routers so that the routers can select the proper path for network traffic, while TCP is responsible to ensure the data packets are transmitted across the network reliably and error free.
WAN protocol suite is for the lowest three layers and defines communication over various wide-area media such as fiber optic and cable.
Protocols could be grouped into suites (or families, or stacks) by their technical functions, or origin of the protocol introduction, or both.

 Network Analysis Protocol Analyzer - FAQs
While protocol analyzers can be used by network developers to view the exact contents of a network conversation, a modern protocol analyzer with a graphical user interface provides many other types of information beyond the bits and bytes of the actual protocols.
Protocol Statistics displays the percentage of your LAN bandwidth that a particular protocol is using.
Using a protocol analyzer in a switched environment is common, and can provide both global port balancing information (using station statistics) and specific conversation troubleshooting information (using packet capture and decode).

 network monitor, protocol analyzer, and packet sniffer
If your network is crawling to a standstill, and you suspect there might be a problem with the network traffic, Network Probe will quickly help you identify what is causing the problem, show you who is generating any troublesome traffic, and where the traffic is being transmitted.
Network Probe gives you full graphical representation and detailed statistics of the traffic load on your network and the type of data travelling across it.
All network traffic information collected by the probe can be searched, sorted, and filtered by protocols, hosts, conversations, network interfaces, traffic amount, and the date and time any of these entries were first seen.

 Network Time Protocol - a Whatis.com definition - see also: NTP   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-06)
Network Time Protocol (NTP) is a protocol that is used to synchronize computer clock times in a network of computers.
In common with similar protocols, NTP uses Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) to synchronize computer clock times to a millisecond, and sometimes to a fraction of a millisecond.
Accurate time across a network is important for many reasons; even small fractions of a second can cause problems.

 Simple Network Management Protocol
By specifying the protocol to be used between the network management application and management agent, SNMP allows products (software and managed devices) from different vendors (and their associated management agents) to be managed by the same SNMP network management application.
The loss of data may be a limitation to a network manager, depending on the criticality of the information being gathered and the frequency at which the polling is being performed.

 Controller Area Network (CAN) - Protocol
Beside the CAN protocol itself the conformance test for the CAN protocol is defined in the ISO 16845, which guarantees the interchangeability of the CAN chips.
Every message has a message identifier, which is unique within the whole network since it defines content and also the priority of the message.
It is easy to add stations to an existing CAN network without making any hardware or software modifications to the present stations as long as the new stations are purely receivers.

The IP (Internet Protocol) is a protocol which uses datagrams to communicate over a packet-switched network.
The IP protocol operates at the network layer protocol of the OSI reference model and is a part of a suite of protocols originally developed by the US Department of Defense (DoD).
In a LAN environment, the protocol is normally carried by Ethernet, but for long distance links, a data link protocol such as HDLC is usually used.

 CLNP, Connectionless Network Protocol, ISO 8473
CLNP provides essentially the same maximum datagram size, and for those circumstances where datagrams may need to traverse a network whose maximum packet size is smaller than the size of the datagram, CLNP provides mechanisms for fragmentation (data unit identification, fragment/total length and offset).
Like IP, a checksum computed on the CLNP header provides a verification that the information used in processing the CLNP datagram has been transmitted correctly, and a lifetime control mechanism ("Time to Live") imposes a limit on the amount of time a datagram is allowed to remain in the internet system.
As is the case in IP, a set of options provides control functions needed or useful in some situations but unnecessary for the most common communications.
