A protocol is a set of rules that govern how data is transmitted and communicated between devices or systems. It defines the format, order, and behavior of messages or signals to ensure smooth and standardized communication. Protocols serve as a common language or framework that enables interoperability and reliable communication between different components or systems. They specify how data is packaged, addressed, transmitted, and received, as well as how errors or conflicts are handled. Common examples of protocols include the Internet Protocol (IP) for routing and addressing data packets on the internet, the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) for reliable and ordered transmission of data, and the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) for communication between web browsers and servers.
