View all copies of this ISBN edition:

TCP is abbreviation of Transmission Control Protocol, and pronounced as separate letters. TCP is one of the main protocols in TCP/IP networks. Whereas the IP protocol deals only with packets, TCP enables two hosts to establish a connection and exchange steams of data. TCP guarantees delivery of data and also guarantees that packets will be delivered in the same order in which they were sent.
