The TCP/IP standard for internet communication, was established as a standard on January 1, 1983. In short, this is the networking technology that the world has been talking on for the past 25 years!
TCP/IP has been the glue that sticks computers, networks and people together, enabling seemless communication across disparate geographical locations, cultures, climates, languages and regions spanning the entire globe. Over the years, TCP/IP has helped load millions of websites, transport trillions of ideas, thoughts and emotions, news and information across the barriers of time and distance. If it weren’t for TCP/IP, the world today would have been very different.
