Ethernet (UDP and TCP)

Ethernet UDP (User Datagram Protocol) and TCP (Transmission Control Protocol) are the basic communication languages or protocols of the internet. They can also be used as communications protocol in private networks.

  • Common use of Ethernet has reduced the cost of implementation
  • UDP is best suited for applications requiring fast
  • efficient transmission
  • TCP is a very forgiving protocol when transmission reliability is low
  • giving it a good reputation for error handling; however
  • the advantage of error handling limits the speed and synchronous behavior of data exchange
