Transport Control Protocols Part 1: An Overview and User Datagram Protocol Implementation



A typical communication system consists of applications, transport layer agents, and a low-level network. An application models user demand to transmit data. Taking user demand as an input, a sending transport layer agent creates packets and forwards them to the associated receiving transport layer agent through a low- level network. Having discussed the details of low-level networks in Chaps. 5-7, the details of transport layer agents are presented here in Chaps. 9 and 10. Also, the details of applications will be presented in Chap. 11.
