    Most common communication protocol on the internet that ensures end-to-end communication is called what?  

    • A.

      TCP/IP

    • B.

      FTP

    • C.

      HTTP

    • D.

      SLIP/ppp

    Correct Answer
    A. TCP/IP
    Explanation
    TCP/IP is the most common communication protocol on the internet that ensures end-to-end communication. TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) is responsible for breaking data into packets and reassembling them at the destination, while IP (Internet Protocol) is responsible for addressing and routing these packets across the network. Together, TCP/IP provides a reliable and efficient method for data transmission over the internet, making it the standard protocol for internet communication. FTP (File Transfer Protocol), HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), and SLIP/ppp (Serial Line Internet Protocol/Point-to-Point Protocol) are also used for specific purposes, but they do not provide the same level of end-to-end communication as TCP/IP.

    The management wants that the network traffic should be minimized for this, which network device would you suggest?

    Correct Answer
    Router
    Explanation
    A router is the most suitable network device to minimize network traffic. Routers are designed to efficiently direct network traffic between different networks, such as local area networks (LANs) and wide area networks (WANs). They use routing tables to determine the best path for data packets to reach their destination, which helps to optimize network traffic flow. Additionally, routers can also implement network segmentation by creating separate subnets, which can further reduce unnecessary network traffic by limiting broadcasts and isolating network segments.
