Network Protocols at IgMin Research | Technology Group

Our mission is to foster interdisciplinary dialogue and accelerate the advancement of knowledge across a wide spectrum of scientific domains.


Network protocols form the backbone of modern communication, enabling seamless data exchange across various devices and networks. From the intricacies of the internet to local area networks (LANs), understanding network protocols is crucial in the world of technology. In this section, we delve into the world of Network Protocols, exploring their mechanisms, significance, and evolving landscape.

Network protocols are the set of rules that govern the way data is transmitted, received, and interpreted over networks. They ensure that devices, regardless of their nature, can communicate effectively. From the foundational Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP) to the modern iterations like HTTP, HTTPS, and MQTT, network protocols have enabled the creation of interconnected systems that power our digital age.
