Since the Internet has been introduced to the world. There have been an increasing number of people using the Internet for the very first time. They are using device(s) like their phone, computers, and television to connect to the Internet. An integral of this growth is the use of Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). The Transport Control Protocol and Internet Protocol are two important communication protocols used in the network today. In this paper, I will discuss the functionality and the evolution of TCPIP protocol.
Prior to the 1960s, computer communication consisted of basic binary data and simple text, carried by telecommunications network

universities and the corporate research community to design open, standard protocols and build multi-vendor networks. This was the first packet switching network. The experiment was successful creating these four nodes at three different sites connecting together at 56 kbit/s circuits using Network Control Protocol and the trial network evolved to a useful operational network, which was called, the “ARPA Internet”. The first node of the ARPANET was installed at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA). Then another node was at Stanford Research Institute (SRI), the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB), and the University of Utah.
In 1973, Vinton G. Cerf and Robert E. Kahn conducted a research on a reliable way data communication across packet radio networks. From what Cerf and Kahn learned, they created the next generation TCP, which is the standard protocol used on the Internet today. Since the change, the set of communications protocols is used for the Internet and other networks. IP evolved in the 1960s and 1970s, namely the Internet and LANS, which emerged in the late-1980s and advent of the World Wide Web in the early 1990s. The two-network TCP/IP communication test was performed in 1975 with Stanford and University College London. Later that year, there was test conducted between sites in the US, UK, and Norway. There were multiple research centers conducting TCP/IP prototypes between 1978 – 1983. The
