Networking and Communication

In the early days of computing, computers were seen as devices for making calculations, storing data, and automating business processes. However, as the devices evolved, it became apparent that many of the functions of telecommunications could be integrated into the computer. During the 1980s, many organizations began combining their once-separate telecommunications and information-systems departments into an information technology, or IT, department. This ability for computers to communicate with one another and, maybe more importantly, to facilitate communication between individuals and groups, has been an important factor in the growth of computing over the past several decades.

Computer networking really began in the 1960s with the birth of the Internet, as we’ll see below. However, while the Internet and web were evolving, corporate networking was also taking shape in the form of local area networks and client-server computing. In the 1990s, when the Internet came of age, Internet technologies began to pervade all areas of the organization. Now, with the Internet a global phenomenon, it would be unthinkable to have a computer that did not include communications capabilities.

Internet and World Wide Web

The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks. That interchange data by packet switching using the standardized Internet Protocol Suite. It is actually a physical network and also known as network of networks. The Internet is a giant network spread throughout the world by connecting millions of computers. Therefore the standards of the Internet Infrastructure based upon worldwide standards. This enables the world-wide connectivity and generality to use the Internet.

The Internet Originated from the older concept of ARPAnet (Advance Research Project Agency Network) in 1970s. ARPAnet used for military purposes by USA department of defense during the 2’nd world war. It’s a protected network used for effectively against enemy parties during those days. After the war that system re-established used by scientists and engineers to share their experiment details, and after sometime it used within Universities, and after while it popular among whole community.

World Wide Web (WWW) is a service provided by the Internet that allows users to view information on remote computers. World Wide Web is the most powerful application on the Internet. It defines the Software part of the Internet. All the Websites and other software resources are falls in to this W3 category.

In 1990 Tim Berners-Lee and at team at the CERN developed this World Wide Web.
