Internet Protocol 
 
 
INTERNET PROTOCOL 
IP as a Routed Protocol 
IP is a connectionless, 
unreliable, best-effort delivery 
protocol.  
IP accepts whatever data is 
passed down to it from the 
upper layers and forwards the 
data in the form of IP Packets. 
All the nodes are identified 
using an IP address.  
Packets are delivered from the 
source to the destination using 
IP address

Internet Protocol 
IP Address 
IP address is for the INTERFACE of a host. Multiple 
interfaces  mean multiple IP addresses, i.e., routers. 
32 bit IP address in dotted-decimal notation for ease 
of reading, i.e., 193.140.195.66 
Address 0.0.0.0, 127.0.0.1 and 255.255.255.255 
carries special meaning.  
IP address is divided into a network number and a 
host number. 
Also bits in Network or Host Address cannot be all 
0 or 1.
