  Protocol (computing) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, a protocol is a convention or standard that controls or enables the connection, communication, and data transfer between two computing endpoints.
Protocols should be distinguished from technical standards, which variously specify how to build a computer or related hardware device, or how the contents of a file are structured, or describe the static structure of a network interface.
A distinction that is useful in the understanding of protocols is that between a functional protocol and a stimulus protocol.

An example of a simple communications protocol adapted to voice communication is the case of a radio dispatcher talking to mobile stations.
In computer science and information theory, error correction consists of using methods to detect and/or correct errors in the transmission or storage of data by the use of some amount of redundant data and (in the case of transmission) the selective retransmission of incorrect segments of the data.
Layering is a design principle which divides the protocol design into a number of smaller parts, each of which accomplishes a particular sub-task, and interacts with the other parts of the protocol only in a small number of well-defined ways.

 Communications protocol - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the field of telecommunications, a communications protocol is the set of standard rules for data representation, signalling, authentication, and error detection required to send information over a communications channel.
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.

 CITES Glossary
Protocols allow data to be taken apart for faster transmission, transmitted, and then reassembled at the destination in the correct order.
The protocol used determines the way errors are checked, the type of compression, the way the sender indicates the end of the transmission, and the way the receiver indicates that the message has been received.
Protocols can describe low-level details of machine-to-machine interfaces (e.g., the order in which bits and bytes are sent across a wire) or high-level exchanges between allocation programs (e.g., the way in which two programs transfer a file across the Internet).
